Practitioner posters that target innovative applications of research in practice or identified code-based needs for research are also encouraged.
Thanks to support from FEMA, several registration grants are available to assist EERI student and young professional members to attend the 2017 Annual Meeting by waiving registration fees. Grants will be contingent upon participation in one of the poster sessions, either through the applicant's own research project, or as a representative of a student chapter with a poster depicting the chapter's activities.
