It is the presenters who will make this conference a success, from the quality of their papers to their engagement with the delegates.


The Pacific Conference on Earthquake Engineering (PCEE) is a valuable forum for professionals and researchers working to understand and reduce seismic risk. This four-yearly assembly of between four and five hundred professionals and researchers represents a broad range of disciplines from Australasia, Pacific Rim countries, and beyond.

The New Zealand Society for Earthquake Engineering (NZSEE) and the Australian Earthquake Engineering Society take pleasure in inviting you to participate in the 11thPCEE being held in Auckland, New Zealand from 4-6 April 2019. The 11PCEE will also be the NZSEE annual conference for 2019.

The 11PCEE organising team invited researchers and professionals to present state-of-the-art papers on the science and practice of earthquake engineering, with a particular focus on "turning hazard awareness into risk mitigation". They are particularly interested in those developing long-term visions and strategies for this and to encourage the young professionals who will be leading the engineering community to this goal in the coming decades.

We, the organising team, have invited three keynote and nine plenary presenters to inspire and challenge delegates attending the conference. We were overwhelmed by the 300 abstracts received for contributions to this international forum and are assembling a technical programme from the 120 papers that were received. These provide a wide spectrum of presentations for delegates to learn from and discuss during the networking breaks.

As the technical programme is being fleshed out, please help us promote the conference by emailing the link for this page to any colleagues you consider could either benefit from attending or contribute further to its success.

We look forward to seeing you and your colleagues in Auckland!
