ACI-ASCE Committee 352, Joints and Connections in Monolithic Concrete Structures, would like to make you all aware of the following "Call for Presentations." Presentations from those responsible for the DESIGN and CONSTRUCTION of R/C connections in high-seismic zones are particularly solicited. Thanks for your time. Jim LaFave MEETING: Two technical sessions on "Design and Construction of Earthquake-Resistant Monolithic Connections" during the October 1998 ACI Fall Convention in Los Angeles, Calif., sponsored by ACI-ASCE Committee 352, Joints and Connections in Monolithic Concrete Structures. SOLICITED: Presentations on topics related to the design and construction of reinforced concrete beam-column-slab connections. Of particular interest are experiences of designers and contractors with such connections, especially in high-seismic zones. Subjects included for the first time in the new Committee 352 Recommendations (slab participation, knee joints, wide beam construction, and use of headed reinforcement) are also of interest, as are connection-related subjects not yet included in the Committee 352 Recommendations, such as constructability, strut-and-tie modeling, retrofit, and displacement-based design. REQUIREMENTS: 1) Presentation title, 2) author(s) name, organization, address, telephone, FAX, and e-mail, 3) abstract not exceeding 300 words. DEADLINES: Abstracts by June 30, 1998. Authors will be notified of acceptance by July 31, 1998. SEND TO: James M. LaFave, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Mass., 01003-5205; Telephone: (413) 577-2337; FAX: (413) 545-2840; e-mail: lafave(--nospam--at)ecs.umass.edu.
