Abstracts for GMPE Session at the IASPEI – IAHS – IAPSO Meeting Due Feb 4

PEER researchers are invited to submit abstracts for the upcoming IASPEI – IAHS – IAPSO Scientific Assembly to be held in Gothenburg on 22-26 July 2013. This conference will be a forum, where experts from various disciplines of hydrology, oceanography, seismology and physics of the Earth’s interior can meet and exchange knowledge and ideas with colleagues from all over the world. The Assembly also gives the scientists the opportunity to inform the general public and policy makers.

Of particular interest to PEER researchers may be Session S201b: Ground Motion Prediction Equations that will discuss the broad aspects of seismological parameters used by predictive models to estimate ground motions for different earthquake scenarios, and provide examples of applications for site-specific or regional seismic analysis. Presentations related to all topics of ground motion estimation, from GMPEs modeling to their relevance for seismological and engineering applications are encouraged. Overviews showing the significance of predictor parameters used in GMPEs functional forms, including their potential impact on aleatory and epistemic variability associated with ground motion, are valued. Also encouraged are contributions related to reviews on existing or new GMPE models, assessments of their performance with respect to global or regional data-set, examples of logic-tree implementation for seismic hazard studies, as well as other wide range of applications.

The deadline for abstract submission and grant application is February 4, 2013.
