11th ACES (APEC Cooperation for Earthquake Science) International Workshop

11th ACES (APEC Cooperation for Earthquake Science) International Workshop,
New Zealand,
15-18 November, 2022

We are pleased to announce that the 11th ACES International Workshop will be held at the Marlborough Convention Centre in Blenheim, New Zealand, from 15 November to 18 November, 2022. Blenheim is located in the northern part of the South Island, and is close to the location of the 2016 Mw 7.8 Kaikōura earthquake.

The ACES (ACES) (APEC Cooperation for Earthquake Science) is a multi-lateral grand challenge science research cooperation of APEC. The project is supported by Australia, China, Japan, and USA (core members) as well as Canada, Chinese Taipei, New Zealand, and South Korea (members). It involves leading international earthquake science research groups. ACES aims to develop realistic simulation models, thus providing a "virtual laboratory" to probe earthquake behaviour and to access its potential hazards. This capability will offer a new opportunity to gain an improved understanding of the earthquake process and related phenomena, and of earthquake science in general.
