2cnissBecause of the numerous requests of the interested participants in 6 CNIS & 2 CNISS, the Scientific and Organizing Committees decided to extend the deadline for the submission of the abstracts until March 6th, 2017.

The 6th National Conference on Earthquake Engineering and the 2nd National Conference on Earthquake Engineering and Seismology - 6CNIS & 2CNISS, will take place on June 14-17, 2017 in Bucharest - Romania, at the Technical University of Civil Engineering. The previous National Conferences were hosted by the Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest in 1997, 2001, 2005, 2009 and 2014.

The 6CNIS & 2CNISS will offer a stimulating and challenging environment for the exchange of ideas, knowledge and experience. The organizers invite scientists, engineers, contractors, urban planners and policy officials to participate in this event. The renowned international scholars from the International Advisory Committee will provide keynote and invited lectures in the plenary sessions.

The papers accepted by the International Advisory Committee and Scientific Committee will be published in the Conference Proceedings; authors of the accepted papers will present their contribution in the Symposium.
