The 3rd International Nigel Priestley Seminar, named in honour of Prof. Nigel Priestley, who was co-founder of the ROSE School in 2001, will take place in Pavia on 25-26 May 2017. The Seminar corresponds to the 17th edition of the traditional UME School/ROSE Seminar, during which Master and PhD students in Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology (ROSE Programme), Risk and Emergency Management (REM Programme) and Weather Related Risk (WRR Programme) of the UME postgraduate school are given the opportunity to present and discuss their research work to an audience of international experts.
In addition to standard presentations on research work carried out at the School, the Seminar will continue the tradition of inviting a prominent scientist to deliver a keynote lecture on a given contemporary and highly relevant topic in the field of Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology.
At this year’s event, the keynote address entitled "Capturing Liquefaction and Ground Failure from Space" will be delivered by Ellen Rathje, Warren S. Bellows Centennial Professor at University of Texas, Austin, US.
