NSF NHERI Coastal Hazards Engineering New User Workshop, July 19-20 at OSU

Published on June 1, 2017


We are please to announce the NHERI Coastal Hazards Engineering New User Workshop at Oregon State University on July 19-20, 2017.

The purpose of this two-day workshop is to introduce new users to the NHERI Experimental Facility at Oregon State University, to discuss the coastal hazards engineering science plan, to introduce related NHERI components (the NCO, DesignSafe, RAPID, and SimCenter), and to discuss NSF funding opportunities for Coastal Hazards Engineering and proposal preparation. On Day one, there will be a series of presentations by former and current researchers funded through the NSF NEES and NHERI programs. These presentations will focus on how the experimental facility was used to achieve their research objectives, aspects of the experimental design, challenges with new/unique instrumentation, use of numerical modeling to inform the experimental design, data archiving, and new results.  On Day 2, there will be a tour of the NHERI Experimental Facility at the O.H. Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory, discussion of the NHERI Science Plan, presentation of related NHERI components, and discussion about NSF funding opportunities and proposal preparation.

This workshop is open to researchers interested in coastal hazards engineering, but you must complete the registration form to attend. Researchers who are new to the facility and early career researchers are particularly encouraged to attend.  There is no registration fee, however, the total number of participants is limited.  The deadline to register is July 7.  The registration page, workshop agenda, and lodging information:  http://cce.oregonstate.edu/NSF-NHERI 

Partial travel support for on-site participants, up to a maximum of $650 per participant, is available on a limited basis and will be distributed with preference of early career faculty and new users to the facility. The deadline to request travel support is June 19, 2017.
