About SCEC Research Resources Learn & Prepare

SCEC Meetings and Workshops
SCEC is an open community of trust that nurtures early-career scientists and shares information and ideas about earthquake system science. The Center’s working groups, workshops, field activities, and annual meeting enable scientists to collaborate over sustained periods, building strong interpersonal networks that promote intellectual exchange and mutual support. In particular, SCEC encourages colleagues with creative physics-based ideas about earthquakes to formulate them as hypotheses that can be tested collectively. An advantage is that researchers with new hypotheses are quickly brought together with others who have observational insights, modeling skills, and knowledge of statistical testing methods. Participation in SCEC is open, and the participants are constantly changing.

SCEC Annual Meetings

The SCEC Annual Meeting is an opportunity for the community to share and get updates on SCEC research projects and activities, as well as plan collaborations for the coming year. The Annual Meeting is held each September, beginning on the Sunday after Labor Day.

The 2015 SCEC Annual Meeting will be on September 13-16, 2015.

Past SCEC Annual Meetings: 2014 | 2013 | 2012 | 2011 | 2010 | 2009 | 2008 | 2007 | 2006 | 2005 | 2004 | 2003

SCEC-Funded Workshops

SCEC participants who wish to host a workshop may submit a proposal in response to the SCEC Science Collaboration Plan. We welcome workshop proposals that organizing collaborative research efforts for the five-year SCEC program (2012-2017). In particular, interactive workshops that engage more than one focus and/or disciplinary group are strongly encouraged. Below is a list of workshops funded for the current SCEC cycle. Go to the SCEC calendar for a full list of events or view previously SCEC-Funded Workshops.
