Registration Grants and Poster Sessions

Registration Grants

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has made funds available to award registration grants to graduate students, and early career academics and professionals to defray costs for attending the 2019 EERI Annual Meeting.

Awards are limited to graduate students, early academics and early professionals who reside in the U.S., attend a U.S. university, or teach at a U.S. university as of November 15, 2018. These grants are being coordinated by the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI).

Applications for the registration grants are expected to open October 15, 2018, and close Monday, December 17, 2018.

If you are applying for a Registration Grant please do not register until notifications are made. Notifications will be sent out prior to the Early Bird registration deadline of December 31, 2018.

Poster Abstracts

Individuals interested in participating the 2019 Annual Meeting poster sessions are invited to submit abstracts by December 1, 2018.

Accepted abstracts will be reproduced as submitted and therefore must be received in final form. Abstracts should be no more than 500 words in length, prepared with one-inch margins on all sides, single-spaced in 11-point Times Roman or equivalent font. Text should be flush left. The title, in upper case, should be centered at the top, with presenters identified by name, title, and organizational affiliation.

Abstracts should be uploaded as a PDF file.

Academic posters that target advanced research nearing completion and focusing on technology transfer to practitioners and practitioner posters that target innovative applications of research in practice or identified code-based needs for research are encouraged. Presenters will be notified of acceptance in mid-December, 2018.


The objective of EERI is to reduce earthquake risk by advancing the science and practice of earthquake engineering; improving understanding of the impact of earthquakes on the physical, social, economic, political, and cultural environment; and advocating comprehensive and realistic measures for reducing the harmful effects of earthquakes.
