APEC Cooperation for Earthquake Simulation (ACES)
The APEC Cooperation for Earthquake Simulations organization announces a workshop to discuss simulation of earthquake and other natural hazards around the Pacific Rim.
To be held in Maui, Hawaii, at the Makena Resort in Kihei, Hawaii, during May 1-5, 2011, the workshop will bring together scientists from the Australia, Canada, China, Chinese Taipei, Japan, the United States, and other APEC economies that have been devastated in recent years by earthquakes and other disasters.
Local Organizing Committee (LOC) will include John Rundle (Chair), John McRaney (Secretary), and the ACES International Science Board.
|Advances in complex fault-based system-level simulations of plate boundaries and the science that underlies them|
|Simulation of multihazards, including tsunamis, storm surges, flooding, landslides, wildfires, and climate change|
|Enabling technologies including cloud computing, radar interferometry, and geographic information systems|
|Applications of simulation technology to seismic early warning, forecasting, and urban hazard mitigation|
Attendance will be limited, and an early indication of interest will be appreciated. Partial travel support may be available from the Local Organizing Committee.
The deadline for submitting abstracts with your registration was April 8.
