Dear seismology colleagues,

The Keiiti Aki Young Scientist Award recognizes the scientific
accomplishments of young scientists in the field of seismology. Please
consider nominating your junior colleagues or collaborators, or other early
career scientists whose work you know and appreciate. Helping to nominate
these deserving individuals is one way you can help the community recognize
their budding contributions to seismology, and we hope you can contribute.
If you know of deserving candidates but for some reason cannot nominate
them, please feel free to contact Bill Ellsworth (wellsworth<at>,
chair of the Seismology Section nominations committee, with your thoughts.
