2011 Annual Meeting: Palm Springs, CA

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 2011 Annual Meeting of the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) is the final meeting of the collaboration under third phase of SCEC (SCEC3). During the meeting we will take the measure of SCEC3 accomplishments, but the primary focus of the meeting will be on long-range planning for SCEC4. SCEC4 officially starts February 1, 2012, and the SCEC4 proposal puts forward an ambitious plan for the next five years. The Planning Committee has organized a series of sessions consisting of talks coupled with discussions that emphasize new elements in the SCEC research program and are designed to encourage SCEC4 planning. The science of earthquakes is also driven by events, and the meeting program shows the influence of the 2011 Tohoku-oki earthquake, its aftermath, and its implications for earthquake and tsunami hazards in California. As always, 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.

An abridged printed version (PDF) of the 2011 Annual Meeting Proceedings Volume will be handed out to all registrants at the meeting. The full volume (PDF) is available for download.
