Automated People Movers 2005
Date: May 1 - 4, 2005
Place: Orlando, FL USA
odern communications and controls have produced fully automated passenger systems known as automated people movers (APMs). Initial work started in the late1960s, and substantial progress has since been made. Driverless operation of heavy urban rail services is now seen as acceptable and desirable among some public transit officials, especially in Europe and parts of Asia. APMs have transformed airport planning and created new ways for special development districts and urban campuses to organize themselves. The evolution of this industry is uniquely marked in the APM conference series organized by the American Society of Civil Engineers. With the inaugural conference having been held in Miami in 1985, this series will celebrate its 10th event in Orlando May 1-4, 2005.

5th International Conference on Ecosystems and Sustainable Development place
Date: May 3 - 5, 2005
Place: Cadiz, Spain
ECOSUD 2005 is the Fifth International Conference in the well-established series on Ecosystems and Sustainable Development. The meetings provide a unique forum for the presentation and discussion of recent work on aspects of ecosystems and sustainable development, including physical aspects and modelling. The aim of the Conference is to encourage and facilitate the interdisciplinary communication between scientists, engineers, economists and professionals working in ecological systems and sustainable development. Emphasis will be given to those areas that will most benefit from the application of scientific methods for sustainable development, including the conservation of natural systems around the world.

The Conference objectives have evolved over the years, seeking to integrate thermodynamics, ecology and economics into “ecodynamics”.

This successful series first started in Peniscola, Spain (1997); and continued in Lemnos, Greece (1999); Alicante, Spain (2001) and Siena, Italy (2003).

CSMIP Annual Seminar on Utilization of Strong Motion Data - 2005
Date: May 10, 2005
Place: Omni Hotel
251 S. Olive Street, Los Angeles, CA USA
The California Strong Motion Instrumentation Program (CSMIP) in the Division of Mines and Geology (now also known as the California Geological Survey) of the California Department of Conservation established a Data Interpretation Project in 1989. Each year the CSMIP funds several data interpretation contracts for the analysis and utilization of strong-motion data. The primary objectives of the Data Interpretation Project are to further the understanding of strong ground shaking and the response of structures, and to increase the utilization of strong-motion data in improving post-earthquake response, seismic code provisions and design practices.
LCI Labor Symposium
Date: May 10 - 11, 2005
Place: 1300 Tuyuna Road
Santa Ana Pueblo / Albuquerque, NM 87004 USA
The Labor Symposium will explore issues relating to labor in the construction industry. An LCI White Paper will be available on the subject. In this meeting we will move beyond trying to 'sell" or train away the problem. Rather we intend to explore more deeply how the structure, culture, employee engagement and work practices typical in the industry affect our ability to develop a workforce able to deliver greater value to themselves and other project participants.

The seminar will be held in at the Hyatt Tuyuna Resory near the Albuquerque, NM. For reservations, phone 505 867 1234 and ask for the Lean Construction Institute rate. The seminar begins at 8 am each day and closes at 4:30 on the 15th and 4:00 on the 16th. Breaks, lunches and workbooks are provided participants. Dress is casual.
Lateral Forces Seminar
Date: May 12, 2005
Place: Woodbury University
Burbank, CA USA
This year the ARE Exam Series is structured to enable participants to follow a schedule that can potentially enable them to become a licensed architect by September 2006.

Based on the fact that most people take about three to five months to study for one exam, I have blocked out the schedule based on an average three-month time frame for each exam topic. This allows participants to study independently, attend the seminars, the workshops and the study groups in a combination that will provide an enhanced opportunity of taking and passing the exams.

Exams can be scheduled by the individual to follow the series of specific preparation activities. In the first month for each exam topic, participants will become familiar with the subject matter. The second month, participants will attend the seminars and the workshops. These will be presented by architects & engineers that have previously conducted workshops and seminars for the Chapter in addition to newly licensed architects who will bring a current prospective to the process. The third month participants will attend the study groups where they will work together to help each other identify and clear areas of misunderstanding and test each other using various methods.

Global businesses increasingly appreciate how design and design thinking can provide them with high-level, strategic value and competitive advantage. In an intensely competitive market, with ever more diverse and demanding customers, executives are often left unsure of exactly what products, communications and services to create for what segments of the market. Design, with its ability to understand users, redefine problems and create systemic, human-centered solutions, can help companies better understand their customer’s daily lives, and lead directly to valuable (and valued) offerings that are effectively tailored to their market.

Helsinki’s Exceptional Architecture: What, Who, Where, Why?
Date: May 26 - 29, 2005
Place: Helsinki, Finland
Four periods of outstanding architectural achievement left their imprint on Helsinki since it was founded on the rocky Baltic shores, only two centuries ago, as the capital of Finland — then a province of the Russian Empire.

The first centers on the work of C.L. Engel, a classmate of Schinkel in Berlin, who was sent to Helsinki in the early 19th century from St. Petersburg to head the design and construction of major new buildings — churches, the university, hospitals and armories. His masterwork is the Lutheran Cathedral, set on granite rocks overlooking the old town core. Its design uniquely incorporates Byzantine massing and richness, Czarist ceremonial pomp, and Nordic Palladianism. See more on the event we b site ....
