Welcome to the EMI 2013 Conference!

It is a great pleasure to announce that the 2013 EMI Conference of ASCE will be held at Northwestern University in its beautiful Evanston (IL) campus on August 4-7, 2013. I am honored to serve as conference chair and I would like you to accept my personal and warm invitation to this event.

The theme of this year's conference is "Mechanics for Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructures"; and we expect the program to be a forum where engineers and mechanicians contribute their expertise to one of the most pressing questions of our society: How can we make the nation's infrastructures safer, more durable, more affordable, and more environmentally friendly during their entire lifetime?

Finally, I can guarantee that you and your company will find your stay exciting beyond the conference program. Evanston and Chicago, situated on the Lake Michigan waterfront, offer countless opportunities for cultural events, fine cuisine, music venues, breathtaking architecture, and entertainment in general.

We really look forward to having you!

Gianluca Cusatis
Conference Chair
