      Roy Severn Memorial and Celebration

      The Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Bristol is holding a Memorial and Celebration of the life of the late Professor Roy Severn on 1 March 2013, from 12:00 to 15:30, at Queen's Building, University Walk, Bristol BS8 1TR.  The event is open to all who knew Roy.

      The event will start with an informal gathering, with light refreshments and buffet, at 12:00, followed by a formal gathering in the Pugsley Lecture Theatre from 13:00-14:00.  

      From 14:00 until 15:30 there will be tours of the Bristol Laboratories for Advanced Dynamics Engineering (BLADE), including the earthquake shaking table laboratory, and opportunity for further informal gatherings over light refreshments.

      Attendance is free, but to help us assess numbers, we should be grateful if you could register for the event, indicating whether or not you plan to attend the buffet.


      We have set up a Google Group where we would be delighted to receive your thoughts and reminiscences of Roy, images and even short video clips and messages.  We shall compile these into a single publication for his family and will make them available to attendees on the day of the Memorial and Celebration event.


      Roy's EU colleagues might like to note that programme of the final FP7 SERIES project workshop, to be held at JRC Ispra from 28-31 May 2013 in conjunction with the US Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES), will include a section dedicated to the memory of Roy and his contribution to European earthquake engineering.
