The Institute was organized by an organizing committee headed by the two scientific directors and with representation by the Turkish National Science Foundation, Turkish National Committee for Earthquake Engineering, the Middle East Technical University and the Aegean University. 93 scientists and engineers of 18 countries took part in the work of the Institute which comprised 10 working days with lectures, discussions and panel meetings. The main lecture topics of the Institute were covered in five main sections: 1. Generic causes of earthquakes. 2. Ground motion and foundation response. 3. Earthquake response of structures and design consi derations. 4. Codes and regulations- implementation. 5. Earthquake hazards and emergency planning. Upon completion of each section, general discussion and short presentations by several of the participants took place and summary statements were offered by the main lecturers. The atmosphere of the meetings was in- VI formal and cordial thus giving rise to many unorthodox and newly conceived ideas.
