Abstract: This proceedings is comprised of 18 articles presented at the 2004 Earthquake Engineering Symposium for Young Researchers, held in Charleston, South Carolina, on August 5-8, 2004.  The presenters were each undergraduate researchers hailing from various academic settings presenting on topics each had undertaken during a summer internship.  Topics included, among others: tunnel responses, earthquake loading, shaking table tests, ground motion attenuation, performance, concentrically braced frames, seismic isolation, reinforced concrete (RC), fragility analyses, estimations, seismic damages, loss modeling, simulations, plastic hinges, system dynamics, intra-plate source modeling, and magnetorheological (MR) dampers.  (Abstract from text).
