Two research centers at the University at Buffalo will be hosts for scientific conferences here this September.
The National Center for Earthquake Engineering Research will hold an international conference on "Reducing the Impact of Disasters -- the Challenge for the 1990s" Sept. 13-16 in the Hyatt Regency Buffalo. It will study postdisaster responses and develop a set of recommendations for international policy-makers.
The center also will be host to the second U.S.-Japan workshop on large ground deformation, soil liquefaction and the effects of earthquake-induced ground movements, meeting here Sept. 26-28 and Sept. 29 at Cornell University.
The New York State Institute on Superconductivity, also based at UB, will be host to its third annual Superconductivity Conference in the Buffalo Hilton Sept. 19-21. It will review progress on research into materials that conduct electricity without resistance.
