Session description:
Scientific and technological advances in real-time seismology and
earthquake early warning mean we are approaching an era when assessments of
the impact of an earthquake can be available as an earthquake is
progressing and grow increasingly reliable with increasing time as
predictive estimates become constrained by observations.

Recent efforts that can critically improve real-time assessment of the
impact include advanced signal processing; tracking evolving finite
ruptures; applications of machine learning; on-site alarm systems; use of
GMPEs and fragility curves for rapid damage assessment; and the integration
of less-traditional datasets including smartphones, GPS, felt/damage
reports and social network data.

With this session, we aim to provide a state-of-the-art overview of the
field of earthquake early warning and rapid response systems. We hope to
create a forum to share experiences, techniques, perspectives, to identify
areas for improvements. We welcome contributions on early warning and rapid
response development, both methodological improvements and applications.
