ERES 2011 is the eighth international conference in the series on Earthquake Resistant Engineering Structures organised by the Wessex Institute of Technology. The meeting provides a unique forum for the discussion of basic and applied research in the various fields of earthquake engineering relevant to the design of structures. The importance and actuality of the work presented at these meetings is reflected by the increasing number of major earthquakes that are taking place all over the world.

The conference began in Thessaloniki, Greece in 1997; followed by Catania, Italy (1999); Malaga, Spain (2001); Ancona, Italy (2003); Skiathos, Greece (2005); Bologna, Italy (2007) and Cyprus (2009). The papers presented at those meetings are now available in the Wessex Institute eLibrary (

This conference aims to discuss the state of the art in structures subjected to earthquakes, including the geophysical aspects, the behaviour of historical buildings, seismic isolation, retrofitting, base isolation and energy absorption systems, as well as a wide range of applications and case studies, partially described in the conference topics.

The problem of protecting the built environment in earthquake-prone regions of the world involves not only the optimal design and construction of new facilities, but also the upgrading and rehabilitation of existing structures and infrastructures in heritage buildings. The inestimable loss of life and the colossal costs following a major earthquake in a metropolitan area provides sufficient reason for the scientific and technical communities to respond to the challenges. It also emphasises the importance of this conference.

Conference Topics
* Geographical and geotechnical engineering
* Seismic hazard and vulnerability
* Seismic isolation and energy dissipation
* Structural dynamics
* Building performance during earthquakes
* Retrofitting
* Lifelines
* Material mechanics and characterisation
* Nonlinear numerical analysis
* Performance based design
* Experimental studies
* Forensic analysis
* Safety and security
* Innovative technologies
