Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to participate in a session entitled “Computational Seismology and Geodynamics” in the forthcoming conference on mathematical geophysics (IUGG) in Russia (see details below). Deadline for registration and abstract submission: April 30.

Kind regards,
Heiner and Ana


32nd Conference on Mathematical Geophysics
June 23-28, 2018 *** Nizhny Novgorod, Russia
Session 7: Computational Seismology and Geodynamics

Heiner Igel (Munich University, Germany)
Ana Ferreira (University College London)

Computational methods in both seismology and geodynamics continue to develop into central tools to analyze data, to build new structural models, understand earthquakes and the long-term evolution of the internal structure due to mantle convection. We invite contributions to any new developments in simulating seismic wavefields or mantle convection in the light of upcoming exascale facilities, new strategies in assessing the uncertainties of tomographic models and innovative methodologies (e.g., deep learning) for data analysis. In addition, we welcome efforts quantitatively combining distinct types of data and modeling across different scales and disciplines. In particular, we welcome contributions dealing with:

* On the road to Exascale: Strategies for computational seismology and geodynamics.
* Is this blob real? How to get at uncertainties in imaging and beyond?
* Perspectives on multi-physics analyses of processes in the Earth’s interior.

Invited speakers:

Yann Capdeville, University of Nantes, France
Manuele Faccenda, University of Padova, Italy
Tarje Nissen-Meyer, University of Oxford, UK

The 32nd IUGG Conference on Mathematical Geophysics (CMG) will be held during June 23-28, 2018.
The conference will take place on a boat that cruises the Volga River with daily stops at historic sites.
The boat has been used for many highly successful conferences before (see recent examples
at The boat will depart and return to the city of Nizhny Novgorod,
Russia (

Please notice the following extended deadlines:
Registration deadline is *** April 15, 2018 ***
Payment deadline is *** April 30, 2018 ***

Program, registration, payment, and visa information:
Please contact Dr. Anna Kazarova [kazarova<at><mailto://kazarova<at>>] for questions/assistance with visa.

The CMG meeting covers a wide range of current research topics in mathematical Geophysics.
The conference aims to discuss key theoretical and observational aspects of solid earth, ocean,
atmosphere, cryosphere, climate and other contemporary topics.

Please forward to interested colleagues, postdocs and students.
