AERS 2023

26 – 28 April 2023

Azerbaijan University of Architecture and Construction AzUAC, Baku, AZERBAIJAN

Dear Colleagues!

First of all, I would like to express my sincere condolences to those who lost their lives in the earthquake that hit our country, and wish a speedy recovery to those who were injured.

Major earthquakes and their associated effects emphasize the need for further research in this area. A better understanding of these events is necessary for the design of advanced earthquake-resistant structures, risk assessments, and efforts to reduce vulnerability to earthquakes.

With this idea in mind, I am pleased to invite you to participate in the “International Congress on Advanced Earthquake Resistant Structures (AERS 2023) which will take place on April 26th –28th, 2023 at the Azerbaijan University of Architecture and Construction Baku/ Azerbaijan. The congress will serve as a unique forum for the discussion of developments in basic and applied research on the analysis and design of earthquake-resistant structures, bringing together professors devoted to earthquake engineering, leading engineers in this field, heads of earthquake research centers, and top companies in the industry.

Considering the significant role of the earthquakes on February 6, 2023, we are waiving the participation fee for articles to be written on this subject and are pleased to offer incentives to the responsible authors of the best articles selected by the scientific committee. We invite you to visit our website at for more information on these incentives.

The final article submission date is March 17, 2023.

With the hope of minimizing the adverse effects of earthquakes, not losing our loved ones, and leaving our homes behind, we wish for a better tomorrow.

Behalf of Steering and Science Committee
Congress Chair: Azer A. Kasımzade
Professor of Structural Engineering D.Sc.
