The workshop was organized to meet the needs and opportunities for research and practice in performance-based earthquake engineering. The objectives of the workshop were threefold: (1) to discuss different perspectives on performance-based earthquake engineering as it is applied to new and existing concrete buildings in Japan and the United States; (2) to exchange the latest findings related to the same subject; and (3) to enhance communications and promote opportunities for new and continuing collaboration. Sponsors of the workshop were the Japan Ministry of Education, Science, Sports, and Culture; the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center; and the U.S. National Science Foundation. The workshop covered the following topics: keynote reports on performance-based design; recent topics on experimental and field investigations; design motions and SDF responses; inelastic response of structures; response of frames; seismic response and design of structures; columns; columns and slabs; columns and beam-column joints; and beam-column joints and existing buildings. The proceedings contain two keynote reports and 29 papers.
