Registration now open for 5th PATA Days in Busan, Korea, 21-27 September 2014

Dear friends and colleagues,

The 5th International INQUA Meeting on Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics and Archeoseismology (PATA Days) will take place in Busan, Korea from 21-27 September 2014. The official website is now online! Check the dates and register now! This 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!
