SCEC Meetings and Workshops

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. Researchers with new hypotheses are brought together with others who have observational insights, modeling skills, and knowledge of statistical testing methods to more quickly advance earthquake science.

SCEC Activities Code of Conduct. 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

At our annual collaboration meetings, the SCEC community gathers to share recent research results, review project progress, and plan priorities for SCEC to pursue in the coming year and beyond. Participants include SCEC project teams, leadership, advisory groups, and staff, as well as sponsors and partners who fund Center activities. Researchers working on topics relevant to SCEC priorities and initiatives are encouraged to engage with SCEC at the annual meeting. Potential academic, government, and industry partners connected with computational science, earthquake engineering research, risk communication and other practical applications of SCEC research are also welcome. Early career scientists and students make up >40% of participants.

The SCEC annual meeting is held in September, usually starting on the Sunday after Labor Day. The program consists of about eight thematic sessions with invited plenary talks and ample time for moderated discussions. Meeting attendees are invited to share results and activities by submitting a poster and joining the twice-daily poster sessions.

The 2021 SCEC annual meeting will be held online September 12-17, 2021.

SCEC Science Workshops

SCEC organizes workshops to focus collaborative efforts to support the Center research program. Participants with ideas for interactive workshops that engage more than one focus and/or disciplinary science group are strongly encouraged to submit a proposal to the SCEC Science Collaboration Plan.
