The conference provided a forum to discuss research, conception, design, construction techniques, quality control, monitoring and operation applied to the many engineering works connected with earthquake geotechnical engineering. Provides a forum to discuss research, conception, design, construction techniques, quality control, monitoring and operation applied to the many engineering works connected with earthquake geotechnical engineering. Following topics are covered: Dynamic characterization of soils; Strong motions and site amplification; Soil-structure interaction and retaining structures ; Underground and buried structures; Liquefaction; Slopes and embankments; Codes, standards and safety evaluation; Recent earthquakes; Keynote lactures, theme lectures and discussion sessions. The proceedings are of extreme interest for consultants, researchers, practitioners, professors and students with different professional practices and backgrounds, but having in common the same interest in earthquake geotechnics, and reflect the present state-of-the-practice of earthquake geotechnical engineering.
