Environmental Seismology Conference, travel support

Conference Info: The application of seismic techniques to the study of Earth surface processes is a rapidly growing field. However, the field is relatively new and inherently multidisciplinary. As a consequence, no platform currently exists for the exchange of ideas amongst the growing number of seismologists, geomorphologists, glaciologists, hydrologists, volcanologists, geotechnical engineers, and other Earth surface scientists who are using or want to use seismic techniques. The upcoming EGU Galileo conference, “From process to signal – advancing environmental seismology” aims to be a starting point for an increasingly organized and effective international research community in environmental seismology.

If you are interested, please see the conference website for additional information:

Travel Support for potential U.S. participants: There are a small number of opportunities for scientists traveling from U.S. institutions to receive travel support (made possible by a U.S. National Science Foundation grant). If you wish to be considered for this NSF travel support you must specifically mention it in your abstract submission email, which requires a research abstract and a short explanation of the reasons why you seek to participate in the conference. Your intent to apply for NSF travel support should be mentioned in your statement explaining your interest in the conference. Early career scientists will be prioritized for travel support, but more senior applicants are also eligible.

The deadline for abstract submission and application for travel support is March 13th, 2017. Please see the conference website for more detailed instructions. Applicants for travel support will be informed of whether or not they will receive travel funds by April 1st, 2017.
