The Second European Conference on Earthquake Engineering and Seismology (2ECEES) was organized in Istanbul, Turkey, 25-29 August, 2014 as a joint event of European Association of Earthquake Engineering (EAEE) and European Seismological Commission (ESC). With support from Turkish Prime Ministry Disaster and Emergency Managment Agency (AFAD), the conference has also been included in the DPPI SEE Disaster Management Training Programme for the year 2014.


The purpose of the conference was to provide a platform for introducing and discussing Earthquake Engineering and Seismology along with priority issues of global importance. The conference was primarily aimed at civil engineers, geological and geophysics engineers.More than 1,200 people attended the conference. On the margines of the conference programme, a side meeting was organised by AFAD for representatives of 9 DPPI SEE member countries for purpose of strenghtening the collaboration related to seismic networks and relevant data sharing.
The following is the list of topics of the Second European Conference on Earthquake Engineering and Seismology (2ECEES):
