Call for Spectra Papers on New Zealand Earthquakes

Through a collaboration between the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) and the New Zealand Society for Earthquake Engineering (NZSEE), Earthquake Spectra will be publishing a special issue on the 2010-11 Canterbury, New Zealand, Earthquakes. Papers are invited on the engineering seismology, geotechnical, lifelines, structural engineering, and social and economic sciences aspects of the earthquakes and their effects. Papers on topics such as research using data from the earthquakes, code and guideline development based on observations from the earthquakes, and new emerging lessons for policy and regulation are strongly encouraged.

Abstracts must be submitted in advance of the papers. The guest editors may recommend the modification or combination of abstracts for the purpose of maintaining the specific focus and length requirements of the issue. Papers must cover material beyond what has been published elsewhere, including but not limited to the NZSEE Bulletin and SSA special issues on the Canterbury earthquakes.

Abstracts of one page or less must be submitted by September 20, 2012, by email to with the subject indicating “Abstract Submission for Canterbury Earthquakes Special Issue.” Prospective authors are encouraged to contact guest editors with expressions of interest, opportunities for collaboration with other authors, and questions regarding scope. For more information, including guest editor contact information, visit

The objective of EERI is to reduce earthquake risk by advancing the science and practice of earthquake engineering; by improving understanding of the impact of earthquakes on the physical, social, economic, political and cultural environment; and by advocating comprehensive and realistic measures for reducing the harmful effects of earthquakes.
