Join us for an unforgettable evening as we celebrate the invaluable contributions of Ray Clough and Edward Wilson to the earthquake engineering profession. The numerical methods they conceived and implemented changed and advanced the course of engineering analysis—not only for earthquake engineering and structural dynamics—but also for structural engineering, mechanical engineering, automobile engineering, aeronautical and aerospace engineering, and geotechnical engineering. There is hardly an engineering specialty that has not benefited from their work.

You’ll enjoy a decadent dinner and cocktails as we honor the lives and accomplishments of these pioneers of our profession. Formal attire is recommended -- don’t forget your dancing shoes! CSI’s official band—The Ashraf Allstars—will crank out your favorite hits from the 80s, 90s and beyond. You haven’t seen a show like this! This is the conference event you won’t want to miss.

CSI is graciously covering the costs for the event, so 100% of all registration proceeds will be considered as a donation to support EERI’s Learning From Earthquakes Travel Study Program. This new LFE program provides early career and student EERI members a unique, immersive reconnaissance training and learning experience in a country that is recovering from a major earthquake in its recent past. Your ticket will help and inspire the next generation of earthquake risk reduction professionals, while also giving you access to an incredible, exclusive networking social event.

Dress Code: Fashionable, upscale attire fitting for a night out in Hollywood. Here is your chance to step out of your comfort zone!  Because it’s probably the most common look on the red carpet, you can never go wrong with formal: Tuxedo, dinner suit and a black tie for men, fancy dress and heels for women. If that's too much of a stretch, toe the line between business wear, cocktail attire, and trendy chic (don't forget your fedora). Accessorize with a little sparkle and pizazz! Universally “not allowed” at the CSI reception per "official Hollywood dress codes" are jeans, tee shirts, sports hats, tennis shoes, shorts, sweat pants, cut-offs, capri's and sports jerseys.
