Schatzalp Workshop on Induced Seismicity

5 to 8 March 2019 in Davos, Switzerland

New image with text

Scope

Induced seismicity remains a major challenge for numerous geo-energy applications around the world and a fascinating research topic. Two years full of scientific progress have passed and new, sometimes surprising developments took place since we last met in Davos for the 2nd Schatzalp Workshop on Induced Seismicity.

We now like to invite you to join us for the third workshop that will continue in the tradition of the highly acclaimed previous editions in 2015 and 2017. The focus will again be on discussing the state of the art and future directions of all aspects related to induced seismicity. Special sessions are planned, for example, on lab and underground experiments, the Groningen experience, and the Pohang earthquakes. We also will explore the use of induced seismicity to understand earthquake physics and advance earthquake predictability research.

Sessions

  1. Discriminating anthropogenic and natural earthquakes
  2. Social aspects of induced seismicity
  3. Induced seismicity from gas extraction & post-extraction reuse
  4. The Pohang ML5.4 earthquake
  5. Case studies: Geothermal / Mining / Dams / Others
  6. Advances in monitoring induced seismicity
  7. Modelling induced seismicity
  8. Physics of induced earthquakes
  9. Laboratory and deep underground lab experiments

See Session Outlines for more details.

Registration

Conference attendance is limited to 130 persons. Registration opens in November on a first-come, first-served basis with two different price categories:

  • Standard: 450 Swiss francs
  • Student: 300 Swiss francs

Please register here (starting November 2018). There will be a waiting list, once the 130 places are filled.

Registration deadline: 27 January 2019

You can register an accompanying person for 200 Swiss francs. This includes the ice-breaker event on Tuesday and the dinners on Wednesday and Thursday.

Abstract Submission

To be considered for an oral or poster presentation (12 minutes / A0 portrait) you have to submit an abstract of one page length. Please use this template and submit your abstract here (starting in November 2018).

Abstract Submission deadline: 6 January 2019

We will review all abstracts and inform you in January 2019 of the acceptance.

Fellowship Application

Doctoral and master students are invited to apply for one of 4 fellowships that will cover the conference fee and travel support. Before registering, please submit your CV, a cover letter outlining your motivation (maximum of 500 words), and an abstract for a poster or oral presentation (using this template) as PDF files to schatzalp@sed.ethz.ch. We will review all applications, and if yours is ranked within the top 4, you will receive a voucher to register for free. If your application is rejected but you still would like to attend the workshop, you can then purchase a student registration for 300 Swiss francs.

Fellowship Application deadline: 16 December 2018
