Advances in Earthquake
Source Physics Workshop
1st - 2nd September 2014

Gustav Tuck lecture theatre
University College London

Conveners: Nicolas Brantut, Ana Ferreira, Tom Mitchell
and Teh-Ru Alex Song

Over the past few years there has been increasing research efforts directed towards a better understanding of earthquake source processes, enabled by the development of fully dynamic numerical simulations of dynamic rupture, new laboratory rock deformation experiments (high-velocity friction, instrumented stick-slip tests) and new seismological observations and inversion methods.
The aim of this workshop is to gather a small core of the community working on those topics, discuss the latest progress in the various aspect of the field, and potentially foster future collaborations.

The workshop will be based around keynote talks by leaders in the field, with plenty of time allowed for discussions. The workshop will include a poster session to allow atendees to present their current research. We encourage both researchers and students to attend and present their work.
Registration fee is £35,which includes a workshop dinner and lunches. We have a limited number of places, so please register early.

Registration is now open here and closes on June 15th.
