Welcome

It is with great pleasure that we extend our welcome to each of you to the International Conference in Commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of the 1999 Chi-Chi Earthquake, hosted by Academia Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan.

The Chi-Chi Earthquake, which struck Taiwan on September 21, 1999, with a magnitude of 7.6, left a profound impact on both the landscape and the lives of those affected. This seismic event resulted in significant loss of life and widespread devastation, serving as a stark reminder of the importance of advancing research, preparedness, and response strategies in the face of natural disasters.

As we gather to commemorate this somber anniversary, we come together as a global community of scholars, researchers, and practitioners dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and solutions in earthquake research, disaster management, and community resilience.

Throughout this conference, we invite you to engage in meaningful discussions, share insights, and forge collaborations that will shape the future of earthquake science and mitigation efforts. Together, let us honor the memory of those impacted by the Chi-Chi Earthquake and reaffirm our commitment to building safer, more resilient communities worldwide.
