Hello Seismologists!

We invite graduate students to participate in the upcoming sixth annual
Seismology Student Workshop to be held March 15th-16th, 2018 at the
Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York. The application
deadline is January 15. This workshop is completely student-run and
organized with the aim of bringing together graduate students who conduct
research in seismology and earthquake-related fields. [This workshop is
only open to graduate students, so we encourage advisors to notify their
students about this opportunity!]

We intend to build on the success of our previous workshops in providing a
friendly environment that fosters in-depth scientific discussion. Topics
related to the scope of this workshop include but are not limited to:

Seismic imaging of tectonic processes

Tomographic/inverse techniques

Earthquake source processes

Rock mechanics

Seismic anisotropy

Seismicity and tremor

The format will be a series of 25-minute talks and poster sessions that
take place over the course of the two days. Registration will be $50 due by
the beginning of the workshop. Thanks to a sponsorship from the
Seismological Society of America, this fee will cover three nights of hotel
lodging for the nights of Wednesday March 14th, Thursday the 15th, and
Friday the 16th, as well as all meals and refreshments during the workshop.
We also plan to subsidize transportation. Registration is limited to 55
participants, with preference given to those who submit abstracts.

The facebook page for the workshop can be found here:

If you are interested in attending, please complete and submit the online
application form:

A title, abstract, and an optional figure must be submitted to be
considered for an oral or poster session.

The application deadline is JANUARY 15, 2018. We will inform attendees
about their application status by the end of January. Please feel free to
forward this to other students you know that might be interested.

We hope to see you in March!
