Young Engineers Conference

Conference aims

The aim of this SECED conference is to bring together young engineers and researchers from both the industry and academia to meet and exchange ideas related to the study and practice of earthquake engineering and civil engineering dynamics. This conference will focus on: structural dynamics (experimental, numerical and practical); geotechnical earthquake engineering (experimental, numerical and practical); seismology and risk assessment; seismic retrofit.

This is an excellent opportunity for PhD students to display their ongoing research. Prizes of £100 and £50 will be given to the two best papers presented at the conference. To qualify for prizes, the lead author and presenter must be under 35 years of age by 1st January 2013.

Recordings of past events

Most of our evening meetings are recorded, including the biennial Mallet-Milne Lecture. The recordings are managed by the ICE and are made available for a year after the event. Go to ICE's Event Archive to find recordings of recent SECED events. SECED members (and ICE members) get exclusive early access to recorded lectures for a period of three months after the event. After this period, recordings are made available to all users.


The events archive is not actively maintained. This means that the information provided for each past event may no longer be correct. For example, people may no longer work for the companies to which they were previously affiliated, and hyperlinks may be broken. SECED assumes no responsiblity for the accuracy of any information contained in the events archive.
