Please make sure to register for the 2020 PATA Days in Chile before 28 February here: https://www.patadayschile.cl
You can also book your hotels here and submit the short abstracts. There’s only a limited number of places due to the remote venue in a wonderful resort hotel – first come, first served. The PATA Days (Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics, Archaeoseismology) is the largest int’l meeting for the paleoseismology community and supported by INQUA. In Chile, a lot of tsunami science will of course also happen.
These are the updated deadlines for the upcoming PATA Days in Chile, November 2020:
- Short abstract submission (300 words): 28 February, 2020
- Extended abstract (four pages as usual): 30 March, 2020
- Initial registration: 28 February, 2020
- Final registration: 30 March, 2020
The website with all the relevant information is here: https://www.patadayschile.cl/.
Here’s the updated 1st circular with the new deadlines (PDF):
The INQUA Focus Group on Earthquake Geology and Seismic Hazards (EGSHaz) will run the International Summer School on Active Tectonics and Tectonic Geomorphology in Prague from 24-27 September, 2019. This event replaces the PATA Days this year and aims mainly at MSc./PhD students and Early Career Researchers. Please note that this is not a classical PATA Days event where new science will be shown and discussed. The summer school is organized by the Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics, Czech Academy of Sciences and the Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Science. Please find a pdf of the first circular here.
The 10th PATA Days, which were planned for September 2019 in Israel, have to be cancelled. The next regular PATA meeting will therefore be held in Chile 2020. This is the bad news. The good news is that there will be a student summer school organized by the IFG EGSHaz from 24-27 September, 2019, in Prague (Czech Republic). Petra Štěpančíková and her team are currently working on the schedule. The summer school will mainly address students and PhD students interested in earthquake geology, paleoseismology, and tectonic geomorphology. We will likely have two days of lectures & exercises and two days of field trips. More information will be available soon, so stay tuned.
Please make sure to consider attending the INQUA Congress in Dublin (25-31 July, 2019). There will be three sessions organized by our IFG:
- Earthquake Geology and Seismic Hazards: from earthquake mapping of historical and prehistoric earthquakes to paleoseismology (Ioannis Papanikolaou, Stéphane Baize, Christoph Grützner)
- Paleoseismology of plate interiors under Pleistocene climate changes (Klaus Reicherter, Petra Štěpančíková, Małgorzata Pisarska-Jamroży)
- Development of soft-sediment deformation structures (SSDS) and differences between non-seismic and seismic structures (Małgorzata
(Gosia) Pisarska-Jamroży, A.J. Tom van Loon, Barbara Woronko, Andreas Börner)
Also, this session could be of interest:
- Subduction zone palaeoseismology (Emma Hocking, Ed Garrett, Jasper Moernaut)
See you in Dublin and Prague!

This is 9th International INQUA Meeting on Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics and Archeoseismology and its associated Summer School on Active Tectonics. The events are organized in northern Greece, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the deadly 1978 Thessaloniki earthquake. Dates and venues are:
You may register for any event, or even all of them. Registration costs cover attendance, the proceedings volume, conference material, coffee breaks, lunches and dinners, as well as social events.
Limited grants are also available for early-stage researchers. Please consult the relevant page for requirements and information on how to apply.
- Paper submissions: 22 APRIL 2018 – NEW DEADLINE
- Grant applications: 22 APRIL 2018 – NEW DEADLINE
- Registration: 30 April 2018
The registration for the PATA Days 2018 in Thessaloniki is now open: https://www.patadays2018.org/registration–grants.html
The 9th PATA Days will take place from 24-29 June in Thessaloniki, Greece. The event is organised by Spyros Pavlides and Alex Chatzipetros and supported by INQUA/TERPRO. more
INQUA has a wonderful new website: https://inqua.org/. Most importantly, it now has a form to register with the TERPRO commission (becoming a member = subscribing to the mailing list): https://inqua.org/commissions/terpro/join. Becoming a member doesn’t lead to any obligations, but comes with two advantages:
1) You will be informed about TERPRO news every now and then;
2) You’ll have the right to vote for the new TERPRO leadership!
There are a couple of changes ahead of us, let’s make sure the earthquake community makes itself heard. During the past years, INQUA-TERPRO has always supported our PATA Days meetings by sponsoring travel grants for
early career researchers and researchers from developing countries. You joining TERPRO will help to continue that amazing work and to support PATA Days, ECRs & DCRs in the future. So please register!
Thanks and see you in Thessaloniki: https://www.patadays2018.org/
The 9th PATA Days will take place from 24-29 June in Thessaloniki, Greece. The event is organised by Spyros Pavlides and Alex Chatzipetros and supported by INQUA/TERPRO.
The conference website is now online at http://www.patadays2018.org.
Save the date for the next round of great discussions about Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics, and Archaeoseismology! The PATA Days 2018 commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Thessaloniki earthquakes. more
More than 130 participants from 21 different countries, about one third of which ECRs and/or DCRs, participated in the 8th PATA Days in New Zealand. The meeting started with an icebreaker on 12 November, followed by a field trip on 13 November to visit the northern surface ruptures of the M7.8 earthquake of November 2016. After that, three days were devoted to scientific presentations, poster sessions, and discussion. A public lecture by Phaedra Upton, Daniela Pantosti, Ursula Cochran, Caroline Orchiston, and Tom Rockwell attracted a large number of Blenheim residents. more
Dear friends and colleagues,
The PATA Days will return to Europe next year! Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Thessaloniki Earthquakes, the meeting will be held in Greece from 25-30 June, 2018. Save the dates! Spyros Pavlides and Alex Chatzipetros will organize the scientific sessions from 25-27 June, and a summer school is planned for 28-30 June. After visiting the active faults of the US (2016) and New Zealand (2017), we will see some great sites in northern Greece. After that we plan to explore what active tectonics do look like in Argentina and Chile in 2020 (Huge thrusts!). More information and a 1st circular will follow very soon. See you all in Greece in June, γεια μας!
