Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite submissions for a special issue of Pure and Applied Geophysics (PAGEOPH), entitled “Best Practices in Physics-based Fault Rupture Models for Seismic Hazard Assessment of Nuclear Installations: issues and challenges towards full Seismic Risk Analysis”. We aim to gather works from seismologists and earthquake engineers, from practitioners to earthquake scientists, on aspects related to ground motion models for seismic hazard assessment (SHA) and the engineering applications of simulated-based ground motion inputs, covering three main topics: 1) Current practice on the use of empirical ground motion prediction models for SHA in nuclear installations; 2) Physics-based rupture models: the role of stochastic, kinematic and dynamic rupture modes in SHA; 3) Engineering issues that rely on ground motion estimates for soil structure interaction, structural response and fragility curve analysis for quantification of seismic vulnerability of structures.

While the issue will mainly include works presented in the BestPSHANI 2018 Workshop (http://www.institut-seism.fr/en/2nd-workshop-best-psha-ni-may-2018-cadarache-chateau-france/), held in Cadarache-Château, France, 14-16 May 2018, we also encourage other submissions that are relevant to the topics defined above, with strong emphasis placed on practical applications and tailored to seismic hazard and risk assessments of nuclear installations.

All submissions will be subject to the PAGEOPH peer review process. Please submit your paper by going to: https://www.editorialmanager.com/paag/default.aspx, then register as an author and select “Report-Top.Vol. BestPSHANI 2018” as the article type.

Instructions for authors and a submission tutorial can be found at:

http://www.springer.com/birkhauser/geo+science/journal/24.

The submission deadline is October 1st, 2018. Papers will be published individually online shortly after being accepted. The combined manuscripts will be published both as a topical issue of the journal PAGEOPH and Book Reprint later. There is no page limit per manuscript, but the length of the article should be justified by its content.

If you are considering submitting a manuscript, we kindly ask you to email a tentative title and authors list to Luis A. Dalguer (luis.dalguer<at>alumni.ethz.ch ) as soon as possible.
