On behalf of the Earthquake Engineering Association of Turkey (EEAT) as the main organizer and the Department of Civil Engineering at Alanya Alaaddin Keykubat University as the local host, it is our great honor to invite you to the 7th International Conference on Earthquake Engineering and Seismology (7ICEES), which will be a joint event with the 18th World Conference on Seismic Isolation, Energy Dissipation and Active Vibration Control of Structures (18WCSI) and held together during 6-10 November 2023 at Xanadu Resort Convention Center, Belek, Antalya, Türkiye. Turkey has been subjected to devastating earthquakes in the past, and the raise of public awareness in Turkey raised significantly after the 1999 Kocaeli earthquake. The public and private sectors took immediate actions against earthquakes. Since then, a number of earthquake awareness programs have been initiated and risk reduction methodologies have been implemented for all types of structures. In addition to structures, the implementation of proper structural or non-structural risk mitigation tools for critical infrastructure is also required for safety purposes and to reduce the insurance premiums of the facilities. Thus, this conference aims not only to bring together scientists, professionals, governmental officials, and NGOs working in the field of earthquake engineering and seismology but also to discuss the current problems in earthquake engineering-related problems. It will provide a unique opportunity for exchanging ideas and help create contacts among scientist for future bilateral and multi-lateral scientific cooperation nationally and internationally. We are looking forward to your participation and support of this joint conference, which will be held at Belek Antalya, Türkiye; one of the most attractive and touristic places in the world with numerous natural and historical places to visit in the turquoise blue Mediterranean region. We kindly ask you to visit the conference website https://18wcsi-7icees.org/7icees for detailed information.
