Dear Sir/Madam,

Greetings from CSIR-North East Institute of Science & Technology (NEIST) Jorhat, Assam, India.

Due to several physical communication constraints brought about by the CoVID-19 pandemic situation, the practice of disseminating knowledge and ideas through webinar, a live interactive event where attendees join via their desktop or mobile device over the internet, have significantly proliferated. While research activities, including research exchange and collaborations, during this unprecedented situation have decelerated, it is imperative to boost the morale of the students and researchers by provisioning opportunities to interact with eminent personalities of their research interest.

In course with this, the Geoscience & Technology Division (GSTD) of CSIR-NEIST Jorhat would like to conduct an INTERNATIONAL VIRTUAL WORKSHOP on " Global Seismology & Tectonics " series targeting the geosciences students and community, during 14-25th September, 2020 to be delivered by eminent speakers as per the schedule appended below.

Important Information regarding the Workshop:

(1) The virtual workshop, in the form of a series of lectures, would be held via Microsoft Teams, an internet based visual communication platform.
