As seen in the Great Sichuan earthquake in China 2008, recent earthquake disasters still take precious lives and properties of human beings.
Considering serious needs for protection of human lives and the Global Environment, demands for further development of response controlled buildings such as seismically isolated buildings and buildings with energy dissipation devices have been increasing.
The Japan Society of Seismic Isolation (JSSI) will hold the International Symposium on Seismic Response Controlled Buildings for Sustainable Society as a memorial event for the 15th anniversary of the founding of the JSSI.
The symposium will take place on 16-18 September 2009 at the Institute of Industrial Science, the University of Tokyo in Japan.
The topics will be focused on the discussion about Realizing Sustainable Society by spreading technology of seismic response controlled buildings to the world.
