At the workshop, 45 invited participants and 12 observers from 14 countries addressed the following topics: loss estimation, fragility and vulnerability, and impact on risk management; implementation in engineering practice; performance-based design concepts; and integration of experimental and analytical simulations. Forty-three papers were presented during the first two days of the workshop. The last two days were devoted to discussions organized in the form of working group sessions and a final plenary session. The workshop provided a valuable forum for the exchange of research results and ideas on issues important for advancement of performance-based earthquake engineering methodologies. These proceedings contain the workshop resolutions, conclusions, and recommendations as well as a compendium of the invited papers. The proceedings are intended to assess the state of the art and state of the practice in performance-based seismic design, to define future directions for the development of performance-based earthquake engineering, and to identify important research needs.
