Great interest for GEM at 15WCEE

GEM was one of the talking topics of the 15th World Conference in Earthquake Engineering which saw participation of 3000+ engineers, scientists and practitioners from around the globe. During three special sessions, and many GEM-related talks many expressed enthusiasm and eagerness to (continue to) be involved in GEM's scientific activities, as well as being part of the processes leading to the raising of risk awareness and the introduction of mitigation measures.

Why GEM? We face similar issues but use different approaches
