SCEC Proposals, By-Laws, & Reports
The Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) was created as a Science and Technology Center (STC) on February 1, 1991, with joint funding by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS). SCEC graduated from the STC Program in 2002, and was funded as a stand-alone center under cooperative agreements with both agencies in three consecutive phases, SCEC2 (1 Feb 2002 to 31 Jan 2007), SCEC3 (1 Feb 2007 to 31 Jan 2012), and SCEC4 (1 Feb 2012 to 31 Jan 2017). The By-Laws of the Center are adopted by the Board of Directors for the purpose of conducting SCEC business.

SCEC Annual Meeting Proceedings
The SCEC Annual Meeting is held each September, beginning on the Sunday after Labor Day. The Meetings are opportunities for the community to share and get updates on SCEC research projects and activities, as well as plan collaborations for the coming year. Meeting volumes are available online, as well as abstracts from the poster sessions and plenary talks.
The 2016 SCEC Annual Meeting will be on September 11-14, 2016.
SCEC Science Collaboration Plans (aka RFPs)
SCEC coordinates basic research in earthquake science using Southern California as its natural laboratory. The Center is a consortium of institutions that coordinates earthquake system science within Southern California. The annual SCEC Science Collaboration Plan solicits proposals from individuals and groups to participate in the SCEC research program.
