Dear colleagues,

We invite you to participate in the session "Regional seismic network
approaches and stakeholder collaborations" in the meeting Seismology of the
Americas, SSA y LACSC (

Deadline for abstract submission is *January 24* (

Regional Seismic Network Approaches and Stakeholder Collaborations

Seismic monitoring is a collaborative effort typically carried out by a
broad array of state, university and federal partners. This distributed
approach provides standardized earthquake analysis while adapting to the
needs of specific regions and stakeholders. Many seismic networks in the
U.S. coordinate through the Advanced National Seismic System. There are
numerous organizations, both long-established and new, that operate
independently. This is the case for most national networks within the
Americas and other regions of the world. This session highlights the unique
observations, opportunities and adaptations of so-called regional seismic
networks. The purpose of the session is to foster collaboration and
showcase specific regional success stories.

We welcome a wide range of contributions spanning science, operations
and/or stakeholder engagement and particularly encourage submissions based
on lesser-known organizations. Examples include but are in no way limited
to: response to major earthquakes, unique tectonic considerations,
non-earthquake sources, industry applications, forensic seismology,
detection and processing workflows, facilities monitoring, custom products
and services and support for local stakeholders. The only prerequisites are
(i) real-time data and (ii) adaptation to a regional need or phenomenon. If
your hometown network does something you are proud of, this session is the
place to show it off.
