SCEC Annual Meeting Participation. Upper bar chart shows registrants at the SCEC Annual Meeting 1991-2018. Pie chart shows the demographic profile of 2018 registrants (571 total). The lower bar chart is the history of SCEC base funding in as-spent millions of dollars; the connected dots are the base-funding totals in 2002 dollars.

SCEC is an open community of trust that nurtures early-career scientists and shares information and ideas about earthquake system science. The Center’s working groups, workshops, field activities, and annual meeting enable scientists to collaborate over sustained periods, building strong interpersonal networks that promote intellectual exchange and mutual support. In particular, SCEC encourages colleagues with creative physics-based ideas about earthquakes to formulate them as hypotheses that can be tested collectively. An advantage is that researchers with new hypotheses are quickly brought together with others who have observational insights, modeling skills, and knowledge of statistical testing methods. Participation in SCEC is open, and the participants are constantly changing.

By accepting an invitation to participate in a SCEC-supported event, by email or online registration, participants agree to abide by the SCEC Activities Code of Conduct.

SCEC Annual Meetings

The SCEC Annual Meeting is an opportunity for the community to share and get updates on SCEC research projects and activities, as well as plan collaborations for the coming year. The Annual Meeting is typically held each September, beginning on the Sunday after Labor Day.

Annual Meeting planning kicks off each year at the SCEC Leadership Retreat in June when the SCEC PC, Board of Directors, staff, and agency representatives meet to develop strategies for the Center.

The 2020 SCEC Annual Meeting will be held on September 14-17, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, we are unable to hold the SCEC annual meeting in person this September. Instead, SCEC2020 will now be held as a four-day online meeting. Registration and meeting details will be posted soon. All presenters and attendees will participate remotely. We'll get together online to share recent results from the community and plan research directions and other activities for SCEC in the coming year. The Science Planning Committee and SCEC Staff are developing a program tailored to an online format, and we are committed to keeping all the elements that make SCEC your favorite meeting of the year—focused talks, lively discussions, busy poster sessions, old friends and new ones, and lots of opportunities for inter-disciplinary, inter-generational, inter-esting inter-actions! (And puns, of course.)

SCEC-Funded Workshops

SCEC participants who wish to host a workshop may submit a proposal in response to the SCEC Science Collaboration Plan. We welcome workshop proposals that focus on organizing collaborative research efforts for the five-year SCEC program (2017-2022). In particular, interactive workshops that engage more than one focus and/or disciplinary group are strongly encouraged. Below is a list of workshops funded for the current SCEC cycle.
