The NHERI Computational Modeling and Simulation Center (SimCenter) is hosting its first annual SimCenter Training in Natural Hazards Engineering (NHE) June 13 -14, 2019. The overall goal of the workshop is to introduce new capabilities with regards to simulation for natural hazards engineering. This is a unique, hands-on event to learn about the effective use of research applications developed by the SimCenter.
The target audience is graduate students who are interested in simulating the effects of natural hazards on building components, structures, and communities. During the two-day workshop held at UC Berkeley's Richmond Field Station, participants will be instructed by and interact extensively with the SimCenter’s lead development team. By the workshop's conclusion, participants will be familiar with capabilities of newly released software to facilitate research in NHE. A sampling of the workshop agenda includes:

· Uncertainty Quantification in NHE

· Earthquake Engineering

· Performance-Based Engineering

· Theory and Hands-on Exercises

· Simulating the Effect of Natural Hazards on a Regional Scale

· Utilizing High Performance Computing resources at NHERI through SimCenter Tools

Refreshments at breaks and lunch will be provided. The $20 registration fee will be refunded at the conclusion of the event for full attendance. Registration closes May 30, 2019, or when the maximum number of attendees is reached. Participants are encouraged to register early. Space is limited. Need-based financial support is available for a limited number of U.S. participants for travel, meal, and lodging expenses. The application for aid is available in the registration page and must be complete by May 10, 2019. Graduate students and postdoctoral researchers from under-represented groups are especially encouraged to attend. The final agenda and logistics will be issued to registrants.

The NHERI SimCenter is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (#1612843).
