Programme Highlight

The first statutory code of practice for the seismic design of building structures in Hong Kong will be released soon. This international symposium aims at bringing the key researchers and practitioners in the field of Earthquake Engineering locally and internationally to share with us the updated knowledge of seismic analysis and design of building structures in regions of low-to-moderate seismicity including Hong Kong.


The one-day event includes presentations by nine distinguished speakers from different parts of the world. Each of them will discuss about the fundamentals and the recent advances in a specialised topic with strong emphasis on the unique feature and requirements in regions of low-to-moderate seismicity. Topics include seismic design philosophy and performance objectives, advanced dynamic analysis, structural design at both member level and global level, as well as the application of seismic protection systems.
