Conference Objectives
The ICUEES 2015: XIII International Conference on Urban Earthquake Engineering and Seismology aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of Urban Earthquake Engineering and Seismology. It also provides the premier interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field of Urban Earthquake Engineering and Seismology.
Call for Submissions
We encourage you to contribute to and help shape the conference through paper submissions. For the technical research track, we invite high quality submissions of papers describing original and unpublished results of conceptual, constructive, empirical, experimental, or theoretical work in all areas of Urban Earthquake Engineering and Seismology. The conference solicits contributions of full-length papers, short papers, posters and abstracts, that address the themes and topics for the conference, including figures, tables and references of novel research material. Please review the submission and formatting instructions carefully. Submissions that do not comply with the instructions and size limits will be rejected.

Conference Proceedings
All submitted conference papers will be blind peer reviewed by three competent reviewers. The post conference proceedings will be published in the International Science Index and submitted to be indexed in the Thomson Reuters, CiteSeerX, Google Books and Google Scholar, EBSCO, SCOPUS, ERA and ProQuest. The conference proceedings book & CD and certificate of presentation will be distributed to the conference participants at the conference registration desk.
Special Journal Issues
ICUEES 2015 has teamed up with the Special Journal Issue on Advances in Urban Earthquake Engineering and Seismology. A number of selected high-impact full text papers will also be considered for the special journal issues. All submitted papers will have opportunities for consideration for this Special Journal Issue. The paper selection will be carried out during the peer review process as well as at the conference presentation stage. Submitted papers must not be under consideration by any other journal or publication. The final decision for paper selection will be made based on peer review reports by the Guest Editors and the Editor-in-Chief jointly. Selected full text papers will be online published as free of charge.

Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:

  • Acquisition and Analysis of Strong Motion Data
