Scientific programme

The final programme can be downloaded here:  Statsei_Final_Programme.pdf (1.24 MB) . 

Poster dimensions

The space available for each poster is 90 cm wide, and the poster boards are 230 cm high. So you can fit an A0 poster in portrait or an A1 poster in landscape, or use the available space in your preferred way.  The programme currently lists all the poster in the Tuesday afternoon session but they will all be up in the conference room for the whole duration of the meeting. 

We invite each poster presenter to provide a one-page slide to advertise their poster in a slide show that will be running during break times. 

Duration of talks

We allow 20 minutes for each talk including time for a couple of questions.

Topic areas covered

Contributions include all topics in statistical seismology, and in particular we have selected the five research topics listed below. International leading colleagues have agreed to participate in the Programme Committee as also listed below.

Stochastic modelling of spatiotemporal earthquake occurrence
  • point process modelling of spatiotemporal variation of seismic activity;
  • using model misfit to understand the earthquake process;
  • missing data problem in stochastic modelling of earthquakes.
Summary statistics, empirical relationships and data quality
  • catalogue inhomogeneity and how to deal with it;
  • when do empirical relationships like Gutenberg-Richter and Omori-Utsu fail;
  • when do earthquake data not represent the process, e.g. magnitude saturation, biases due to depth and velocity structure, and how to deal with them.
Earthquake physics
  • improving our understanding of nucleation, friction, faulting, earthquake triggering and interaction including induced seismicity;
  • modelling the effect of aseismic transient deformation such as slow slip, tremor or fluids on earthquake occurrence;
  • testing of physics-based concepts such as elastic rebound, stress accumulation and release and dynamic versus static triggering;
  • using earthquake simulators to improve earthquake modelling. 
Earthquake forecasts and testing
  • model development including hybrid and ensemble models, incorporating physical processes and alternative data;
  • uncertainty related to forecasting earthquakes;
  • new developments in testing methods;
  • operational earthquake forecasting including communication of results.
Modelling of earthquake occurrence from paleoseismic data
  • data quality and uncertainty including completeness of fault database, mismatch between magnitude frequency data from faults and instrumental seismicity and individual fault rupture history;
  • modelling of magnitude-frequency distribution on individual faults: characteristic versus Gutenberg-Richer;
  • time-dependence on faults.
