The New Zealand Society for Earthquake Engineering and the Australian Earthquake Engineering Society co-hosted the Tenth Pacific Conference on Earthquake Engineering (PCEE 2015) in Sydney, Australia.

The conference was held between 6 and 8 November 2015, and was very well-attended by a mixture of practitioners and researchers from around the world.

The keynote presenters at PCEE 2015 consisted of: Prof Jack Baker (USA); Mr David Brunsdon (NZ); Dr Hugh Cowan (NZ); Prof Ken Elwood (NZ); Prof Masayoshi Nakashima (Japan); Dr Hong Kie Thio (US); A Prof Brendan Bradley (NZ); Alistair Cattanach (NZ); Dr J.C. de la Llera (Chile); Gary Gibson (AUS); Dr Tim Sullivan (Italy); Prof Ikuo Towhata (Japan); and Prof John Wilson (AUS).

As well as these international luminaries, our General Manager Structural Systems Dr Stephen Hicks was invited by the conference organisers to convene the stream on composite construction, which he chaired at the event.
