Fault2SHA 3rd Workshop: Role of scaling laws & fault interaction, 2-4 May, 2017, Barcelonnette (France)

The FAULT2SHA Working Group has been formally approved by the European Seismological Commission, at the 35th General Assembly in Sept 2016. The WG core supporters are pleased to announce a new initiative, open to all researchers interested in contributing to discussions on topics that could improve the assessment of seismic hazard.

Why participate?

  • EXCELLENT LECTURERS covering field geology, fault modeling and seismic hazard assessment: six top-level experts from Europe, USA and NZ have confirmed their participation.
  • EFFECTIVE FORMAT: the aim of the ESC FAULT2SHA workshops is to motivate exchanges between disciplines. Three thematic sessions have been planned (earthquake scaling, fault interaction, Fault2SHA), each with two long lectures and time for discussion and flash talks. Students are encouraged to participate, bringing their own data sets, problems and solutions.


The workshop will be held in a special facility located in Barcelonnette, about 200 km north-east from Aix en Provence, in the southern French Alps.


The application deadline is March 31st, 2017. The registration form will be available on a dedicated website: some positions will be reserved for students/early stage scientists.


The school is financially supported and hosted by the CEREGE (F), and IRSN (F). The Program Committee is formed by L. Benedetti, O. Scotti, L. Peruzza, B. Pace, F. Visini.


The facility and the format of the conference limit the number of participants to about 50 persons. Fees are 215 Euro, and include accommodation, meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee and snacks), and bus transportation to and from the airport.
