After two successful “bilateral Iran-o-Japan seminar on seismology and earthquake engineering of historical masonry buildings” held in Azarbaijan Shahid Madani University, Department of Civil engineering of Azarbaijan Shahid Madani University is delighted to announce that the Tabriz will host the first ICESGE (International Conference on Earthquake and Seismic Geotechnical Engineering) on 25-26 May 2021
I am delighted to invite you to join us at the first International Conference on Earthquake and Seismic Geotechnical Engineering (1ICEGSE) in Tabriz, Iran. We believe that this conference will provide an excellent opportunity for structural, earthquake and geotechnical engineers, geologists and seismologists, consulting engineers, public and private contractors, city and national authorities, and all those involved with engineering works and research related to earthquake geotechnical engineering, to exchange ideas and present their recent experiences and developments. Due to the fact that the Tabriz is located in the vicinity of an active fault, the papers presented in this conference will be of great help in designing strong structures and retrofit of the existing structures in this city and other cities.
The "Tabriz" in East Azerbaijan, well-known for its remarkable cultural heritage, historical role, handicrafts including carpets, mild climate and delicious food, is one of the most attractive and prominent places in the Middle East. With your active participation in the first ICEGSE, this coming conference will also be a successful event where you will be professionally rewarded and at the same time you will enjoy natural and cultural beauty of Tabriz.
I look forward to welcoming you to Tabriz in May 2021.
Associate Professor, Hossein Soltani-Jigheh
