Dal 09/09/2019 al 10/09/2019

The SECED 2019 Conference will be a two-day conference on Earthquake and Civil Engineering Dynamics taking place on 9-10th September 2019 in Greenwich, London. This is the first major conference to be held in the UK on this topic since the SECED 2015 Conference.

The conference will bring together experts from a broad range of disciplines, including structural engineering, nuclear engineering, seismology, geology, geotechnical engineering, urban development, social sciences, business and insurance; all focused on risk, mitigation and recovery.

The conference will take place in the modern facilities of the Greenwich University Architecture Building, with the conference dinner held in the Painted Hall of the Old Royal Naval College.
