2019 SCEC Annual Meeting Program and Agenda

The Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) is funded by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Geological Survey to develop a comprehensive understanding of earthquakes in Southern California and elsewhere, and to communicate useful knowledge for reducing earthquake risk. SCEC coordinates a broad collaboration that builds across disciplines and enables a deeper understanding of system behavior than would be accessible by individual researchers or institutions working alone. At the SCEC Annual Meeting, members of the community gather to share and get updates on SCEC research projects and activities, as well as plan collaborations for the coming year.

Meeting Program. The SCEC Science Planning Committee designed the program to review the advances of SCEC and to strategize for the goals set forth in the SCEC5 proposal. The meeting sessions are comprised of a series of thematic discussions to engage the community in the new efforts and initiatives of SCEC. Each theme discussion begins with two plenary talks, followed by moderated discussions on each theme. The SCEC community will provide input and guidance on those potential directions during the discussion sessions.
