Dear Respected Colleagues

On behalf of the Iranian Ministry of Science, Research and Technology (MSRT) and the International Institute of Earthquake Engineering and Seismology (IIEES), it is our great pleasure to invite you to the “7th International Conference of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering (SEE7)” to be held in Tehran, Iran during the third week of May 2015.
During the last decade, the world has experienced many destructive earthquakes in Haiti, Iran, Indonesia, Japan, Pakistan, and Turkey which have affected human lives and properties. One of the most outstanding points in recent events was the damages imposed by earthquakes to urban fabrics. Therefore, the main theme of this conference is selected as “Earthquake Risk Reduction in Vulnerable Urban Fabrics”, in order to highlight the necessity for further researchers in these areas.
Engineers, geologists, seismologists, disaster management practitioners and academics, public and private contractors, researchers and scientists of succeeding younger generations, and all those involved with areas related to seismology, earthquake engineering and disaster risk management are welcome to attend the conference and share their recent experiences and knowledge. We look forward to welcoming you in Tehran, Iran in May 2015. We hope this conference promises unforgettable experiences and makes one of the most successful and memorable events for you.
