The Anti-Seismic Systems International Society (ASSISi) was founded on October 5, 2001 in Assisi (Italy), during the Closing Panel of the 7th International Seminar on Seismic Isolation, Passive Energy Dissipation and Active Control of Seismic Vibrations of Structures. As Assisi is internationally known as the city of Saint Francis, it carries a meaning of “Peace and International Cooperation”. Having ASSISi as the acronym for the Society reaffirms the founders’ willingness to take a clear symbolic position to build a better and safer world through international cooperation and collaboration.
ASSISi brings together academicians, design engineers, manufacturers, agencies' representatives and students involved, or simply interested, in the seismic isolation and energy dissipation technology. The association's goal is to disseminate the results of research programs, application examples and basic training material to foster further development and acceptance of seismic protection solutions and techniques. Under this mission, workshops, World Conferences, seminars and publications are consistently organized.
We would like to invite you to learn more about our programs, people, sponsors and future events through the website and to become an ASSISi's member.
