Dear All,

The Megathrust Dynamics Symposium, part of the 14th International
Conference on Fracture, will take place on Rhodes, Greece, in June
18-23, 2017. The special symposium will gather experts in various
aspects of faulting and earthquake mechanics to discuss various topics
related to megathrust dynamics. The focus will be on observational and
theoretical earthquake physics, including rheology, friction, the
strength of the lithosphere, and more focused subjects related to
tectonic geodesy, structural geology, seismology, and the physical
modeling of deformation.
