PAST EVENTS

04-09 Sep 2022 / The Third European Conference on Earthquake Engineering and Seismology

METIS will be present at the 3rd European Conference on Earthquake Engineering (ECEE) at Bucarest, Rumania September 4-9th 2022

10-15 July 2022 / 26th International Conference on Structural Mechanics in Reactor Technology

SMIRT26 (26th International Conference on Structural Mechanics in Reactor Technology) is to be held from July 10th-15th  2022 at Potsdam/Berlin, Germany. The conference is co-organised by one of the METIS partners, the University of Kaiserslautern and is an in-person event. METIS will be present in the special session dedicated to Challenges and recent advances of EU and international research projects.

20-23 June 2022 / METIS Summer School on Seismic Hazard Analysis

Applications are now being accepted for the METIS Summer School on Seismic Hazard Analysis, to be held at in Pavia (Italy) from 20th to 23rd June 2022.

The Global Earthquake Model Foundation (GEM) and the University School for Advanced Studies (IUSS) will host a summer school on probabilistic seismic hazard analysis. The school organised under the auspices of the METIS project (EU Euratom research and training program 2014-2018, grant agreement n°94512 – metis-h2020.eu), will be held in person and will consist of a series of lectures and hands-on laboratories.

The goal of the school is to introduce the participants to the calculation of probabilistic seismic hazard and to recent methodologies developed in the framework of the METIS project.

The topics offered will include an introduction to the main functionalities of the OpenQuake Engine and GEM’s tools for building components of a hazard input model, aftershock PSHA, vector-valued PSHA and the conditional spectrum approach, time-histories selection for engineering applications. The School is targeted at PhD/Master students and other early career researchers.

The participation to the school is free. Participants are expected to cover their travel and accommodation costs. The maximum number of participants is 20.

Applications to the summer school can be submitted by filling the form.

The application deadline is 15 April 2022.

13-14 June 2022 / Part 2 Code_aster / salome_meca training

This was the second Code_Aster training session dedicated to seismic analysis. This was held onsite at EDF R&D Paris – Saclay.

 

8-9 June 2022 / METIS Summer School on Seismic Fragility

The METIS Summer School on Seismic Fragility, will be held in person at Athens (Greece) from 8th to 9th June 2022. It will be organized by the Institute of Steel Structures at the Zografou Campus of the National Technical University of Athens. The school will span two days. The first focuses on methodologies and approaches for seismic fragility assessment, especially as it pertains to high-importance infrastructure, such as nuclear power plants. Issues of record and intensity-measure selection, as well as industry-standard approaches will be discussed. The second day will comprise practical sessions with hands-on training via Excel, Matlab, and Python, using simple tools to perform data-fitting and derive fragilities.

The School is targeted at PhD/Master students and other early career researchers. The participation to the school is free. Participants are expected to cover their travel and accommodation costs, and bring their own laptops. The maximum number of participants is 20.

Applications to the summer school can be submitted by e-mail to Mrs. E. Vourlakou (lambdalab.ntua@gmail.com). The application deadline is May 15th, 2022.

6-7 June 2022 / METIS plenary meeting hosted by NTUA

This will be the third plenary meeting, it will be a hybrid project meeting (mix of in-person and virtual participants) and will be held over two days 6th-7th June 2022. This meeting will be hosted by our partners NTUA in Greece. We are hoping that with the easing of travel restrictions even more participants will be able to attend in person, than the previous meeting in November 2021.

31 May - 2 June 2022 / SIGMA2 Closing Symposium

This meeting presented an overview of scientific results obtained in the program, their impact on current seismic hazard assessment and earthquake engineering practice, and perspectives for future developments.

30 May - 3 June 2022 / FISA 2022 & EURADWASTE'22

The Euratom Conferences FISA 2022 – EURADWASTE ’22, organized by the French Presidency of the Council of the EU and the European Commission, will take place from 30 May to 3 June 2022 in Lyon, France. The main objective is to present progress and key achievements of the Euratom research and training projects carried out since 2019 and to stimulate discussions on the state of play of research and innovations, challenges, and opportunities, as well as exploring future perspectives.

5-6 April 2022 / Part 1 Code_aster / salome_meca training

General introduction to code with sessions dedicated to nonlinearities and structural elements modelling.

22-23 Nov 2021 / METIS project plenary

This was the second plenary meeting, following the first one that was held fully virtually in April 2021. It was a hybrid project meeting (mix of in-person and virtual participants) held over two days 22nd-23rd November 2021 and attended by 50 participants. Since the start of the project, this is the first meeting which has been held in-person.
