Exciting news! We're transitioning to the Statewide California Earthquake Center. Our new website is under construction, but we'll continue using this website for SCEC business in the meantime. We're also archiving the Southern Center site to preserve its rich history. A new and improved platform is coming soon!

Workshop on Frontiers in Studies of Earthquakes and Faults

Date: 04/12/2017

On behalf of Yehuda Ben-Zion, USC:

Workshop: Frontiers in Studies of Earthquakes and Faults Nov 27-Dec 1, 2017, SUSTech, China

We are pleased to announce a workshop on Frontiers in Studies of Earthquakes and Faults in the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), Shenzhen, China, during Nov 27-Dec 1, 2017.
The workshop will focus on the following topics: (1) Imaging and monitoring fault zone regions, (2) Detection and location of small events, (3) Earthquake source properties, and (4) Brittle rock physics. The format will consist of in-depth lectures by invited speakers, along with short talks and posters. Long breaks between morning and afternoon sessions will provide considerable time for informal discussions and interactions between the workshop participants.

Registration procedure
The registration to the workshop is a two-step procedure involving (1) application and (2) registration. In step 1, applicants are asked to send an email request to attend the workshop that includes name, affiliation, rank (student, postdoc, early career scientist with 7 year from PhD, senior scientist), and tentative title of short oral or poster presentation. Email applications should be sent by May 15, 2017, to Ms. Ying CHEN at cheny6@sustc.edu.cn

Applicants will be selected by the organizing committee by June 25 based on their rank and research interests reflected in the title of presentation. Priority will be given to young researchers. After the selection, successful applicants will be asked to register formally on a meeting website.

Registration including all meals, banquets, and local cultural events: General $500, Postdocs $300, Students free of charge.

Hotel on site: $40-80/night
