The Kashmir Earthquake of Oct 08, 2005, had brought unprecedented destruction to Kashmir and neighboring regions. In order to prevent any possible secondary hazards derived from the earthquake as well as to propose structural retrofitting and rebuilding methods, National University of Sciences & Technology, NUST, invited representatives from the world including Japan, USA, Turkey and China to visit the NUST. After an extensive investigation into affected regions by the Pakistani and Foreign experts, the Conference on Pakistan Earthquake and near regions will be held in Islamabad, Pakistan organized jointly by the Higher Education Commission and NUST Department of Earthquake Engineering. The conference proceedings will be compiled & provided to each participant. The selected papers may be published in NUST Journal of Engineering Sciences. This conference aims to summarize and further discuss the restoration and rebuilding of infrastructures into the earthquake prone zone in order to better serve the affected regions, in remembrance of those who lost their lives during the disaster. Special discounts and honors apply to paper reviewers, technical track leaders, and keynote speakers.
