Dear friends and colleagues,
We are all looking forward to the 5th PATA Days meeting! Don’t forget to register for this conference in Busan, Korea. The meeting will take place from 21-27 September and all information can be found at http://www.pata-days.org.
The second circular is out now, please download the pdf here (PDF, 800 kb). This Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics and Archeoseismology (PATA-days) meeting has been expanding, with fruitful and intense discussion to increase our knowledge of past earthquakes. The last four meetings in Spain (2009), Greece (2011), Mexico (2012), and Germany (2013) brought together more than 350 international scientists from earthquake geology and all neighbouring disciplines. A large number of peer reviewed articles has been published in Special Volumes as an outcome of these conferences. This meeting will include a 2-day workshop with keynote lectures, talks and posters, as well as a 3-day field trip to Quaternary terraces, NPP sites, Active faults and Archeological sites (in the old capital city of Gyeongju) around SE Korea. Busan is Korea’s second biggest city and one of its most visited tourist sites. We invite all of you to Busan, to enjoy Korean life, food, and culture, as well as its geology. Grants for graduate students and young scientists will be available. The Outstanding Presentations will be awarded to promote and reward students and young scientists for quality research. Please come and enjoy one of the most dynamic Asian countries!
Jin-Hyuck and Christoph
