We have successfully organized two International Conferences on Earthquake Engineering and Post Disaster Reconstruction Planning in 2016 and 2019. On behalf of the organizing committee, I express profound enthusiasm on organizing the National Conference on Earthquake Engineering (NCEE-Nepal 2076) on 3rd Magh on the occasion of Earthquake Safety Day.
We are organising international as well as national conferences with an objective of creating a forum where experts, researchers, and academicians can come together and discuss the issues regarding different aspects of earthquake engineering and post disaster reconstruction. As an earthquake prone country, which has seen many devastating earthquakes like those of 1990 B.S and 2072 B.S, experts on earthquake engineering from Nepal have a responsibility of carrying construction that will be safe during earthquake as well as upholding our age-old traditional art and architecture. To maintain the balance between safety and preservation of our traditional architectural and artistic features is also a challenge of today and I hope we will be successful in coping the challenge.
The organizing committee would highly appreciate your unflinching support. As the chairman of the committee, I look forward to welcoming you at the conference on 3rd Magh.
