hile has three distinctive zones:
1. Continental Chile: It has its north limit with Peru, its east limit with Bolivia and Argentina adding up 6,339 Km of land frontier until the south with the Drake Passage.
2. Insular Chile: It is a group of islands with a volcanic origin located in the South Pacific Ocean: Juan Fernandez archipelago, Desventuradas islands located in South America, Salas y Gomez island and Easter island located geographically in the Polynesia. 3. Antarctic Chilean territory: it’s a territory of 1,250,258 Km2
The country is an active member of the UN family of agencies and participates in UN peacekeeping activities. It is currently bidding for a seat on the UN Human Rights Council. Chile hosted the Defense Ministerial of the Americas in 2002 and the APEC summit and related meetings in 2004. It also hosted the Community of Democracies ministerial in April 2005 and the Ibero-American Summit in November 2007. An associate member of Mercosur and a full member of APEC, Chile has been an important actor on international economic issues and hemispheric free trade.
hile is located in a zone with a high probability of earthquakes, and it has several volcanoes which belong to the Pacific Ring of Fire. This phenomenon is created by the subduction process of the Nazca and Antarctica plates with the South American plate. The Chilean coastlines have a history of huge earthquakes originated due to this subduction process as the Valdivia earthquake of 1960 which achieved a 9.5 magnitude in the Richter scale.
The 2010 earthquake in Chile was an earthquake which occurred at 03:34:14 local time (GMT-3) of Saturday, 27th February. It achieved an 8.8 magnitude in a Richter scale.
The epicenter was located in the Chilean sea around 150 Km northeast from Concepcion, 63 Km southeast from Cauquenes, and 30.1 Km below the earth’s crust. The quake was felt in much of the Southern Cone with different intensities as places like Buenos Aires, and Sao Paulo in the western side. The most affected zones were the Chileans regions of Valparaiso, Metropolitan area, O’Higgins, Maule, Biobío and La Araucanía which have more than 13 million of inhabitants, around 80% of the Chile total population.

ACHISINA CHILEAN ASSOCIATION OF SEISMOLOGY AND EARTHQUAKE ENGINEERING
he Chilean Association of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering, ACHISINA, is created in 1963 as a consequence of the large earthquake that occurred in southern Chile in 1960, and the interest of an outstanding group of national engineers and seismologists. The association is established as a private nonprofit corporation, whose statutes established the following objectives:
•To promote and disseminate knowledge, research and development of seismological and earthquake engineering. •Coordinate the work relevant to this effect from different countries and disseminate the results obtained. •Promote national and international conferences for the diffusion of scientific and technical work. •Encourage the development of personal bonds between members of the Association. •Represent its members or associates at the International Association for Earthquake Engineering (IAEE). Since its foundation ACHISINA has been chaired by the following professionals: Rodrigo A. Flores (1963 - 1978), Patricio T. Ruiz (1978 - 1986), Elias L. Arze (1986 - 1993), Thomas B. Guendelman (1993 - 2000), Marcial S. Baeza (2001 - 2011), Patricio C. Bonelli (2012 -) The first board of ACHISINA was formed by the outstanding professionals Rodrigo Flores (President), Arturo Arias (Vice-President), Lautaro Ponce (Secretary), Julio Ibanez (Treasurer) and Cesar Barros (Director). To comply with its mission, ACHISINA represents the country at world congresses of the discipline. It should be noted that in 1969 Chile was the host of the fourth world conference on earthquake engineering. One of the most relevant activities of the Association is the organization of the National Seismology and Earthquake Engineering Workshops (now Congresses), which have been attended by prestigious national and international professional experts.

SPONSORSHIP AND SUPPORT OF THE GOVERNMENT OF CHILE The Board of the Chilean Association of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering, achieved the sponsorship of the Government of Chile. This is a clear sign of the value for our country of the steady development of education, the increase of research in new techniques to reduce earthquake damage, and sharing experiences and knowledge. For our history in biggest earthquakes in the World, has resulted in an accumulation of experience and knowledge, as well as interesting sites to visit, that we want to share with the world by hosting the 16th World Conference on Earthquake Engineering during the second half of September, 2016.
SPONSORSHIP AND SUPPORT OF THE NATIONAL TOURISM SERVICE SERNATUR The Chilean Government wanted to give a stronger signal of its sponsorship requesting and confirming to the National Tourism Office as public body that also support Chileâ€™s bid to host the 16th World Conference on Earthquake Engineering 2016; SERNATUR is the public responsible for promoting and spreading the development of tourism in Chile.
SPONSORSHIP OF THE TURISMO CHILE Turismo Chile is the official organization for the promotion of Chile. Through its meetings division promotes the country to be the host for International Congresses and also will assist any association in the bidding process to bring business events to our country.
SUPPORT OF THE SANTIAGO CONVENTION BUREAU Santiago Convention Bureau (SCB) is a non-profit organization integrated by different companies, which are related to the bussiness tourism, conferences, conventions and exhibitions. SCB mission is to promote Santiago, Chile as the best latin american city for making international events and meetings, supporting and incentivating companies to apply Santiago as their next meeting host. Santiago Convention Bureau supports this through national associations and institutions, facilitating bidding books, comfort letters, city brochures, among others
16th WORLD CONFERENCE EARTHQUAKE ENGINEERING IN CHILE In summary, we strongly believe, and we have pointed out in this book, that Chile is the best option to host the 16th World Conference Earthquake Engineering because of:
1. Our history is shaped by the occurrence of earthquakes whose magnitudes are among the largest historically recorded to date, even recently, during the morning of 27th February 2010, the inhabitants of much of continental Chile were abruptly awakened by an earthquake of 8.8 magnitude on Richter scale, that earthquake was ranked the 7th in magnitude (recorded since 1900). The quake left a toll of 523 people dead and 24 missing, many of them as a result of the subsequent tsunami which hit the Chilean coast. This showed the demanding global seismic standards to be met by any buildings, all of these led by the experience and multiple studies conducted by national and foreign specialists who see in the Chilean universities and institutions in this area as great opportunities for further development of technologies that are used worldwide.
2. Chile is rated as the safest country according by the Competitiveness Forum of the Americas 2011 version, besides it has been the second-largest foreign investor in the region with a solid management of its economy that has allowed Chile enter to the select group of OECD countries (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development). This only reinforces the confidence to confirm Chile to be host of global conventions because it has the necessary infrastructure as airports, roads, hotels and convention centers world class.
