The NEC critically examines the latest research and information from experts in building science and building product innovation, engineering, emergency management, geology, seismology, resiliency programs and policies, social science, public outreach initiatives, scientific insights, and new technologies to drive better understanding of earthquake risk in the U.S. and create disaster-resilient communities.  The NEC is a quadrennial event providing a unique opportunity for engagement and sharing amongst academia, building code experts, engineers, businesses, design/build professionals, FEMA Directorates, first responders, geologists, local emergency managers, insurance and reinsurance professionals, local and tribal governments, private sector practitioners, U.S. State and Territorial Earthquake Managers, NEHRP Agencies, and volunteers.

The deadline for abstract submissions in Proposal Space is 7/26/19. Abstract submissions are limited to 300 words or less. Selected presenters will be notified in early Fall 2019. All selected presenters will be asked to prepare a powerpoint presentation or poster, but NO conference papers will be accepted or required. Presenters will have the option to post their presentation materials on the website but no formal proceedings will be produced.
