All the speakers presented their research in their native language on Zoom. A short introduction and welcoming remarks were given by Professor Eduardo Miranda.
Francisco moderated half of the session including a discussion panel at the end focused on what research paths may be more effective towards enhancing earthquake resilience in Latin-America. More than 1,700 viewers from 16 countries attended the event and nearly 90% of them watched all the presentations and the panel.
