Dear colleagues,



The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), in
collaboration with the SISMOGENICO project at OVSICORI-UNA, is organizing a
Workshop on Seismic sources in Central America: What is the largest
earthquake each can produce? to be held from October 30th to November 5th,
2011, in Heredia, Costa Rica.



The workshop will review the different seismic sources deriving from the
geodynamics of the region and address key scientific issues regarding their
seismogenic potential, as well as design programs to comprehensively monitor
the active deformation and evaluate the related hazard.



The goals of the workshop are also to establish a new initiative for
cooperation in Central America and develop networks for exchange of ideas
and expertise so to facilitate capacity-building and training of individual
scientists from those countries where the need is greatest. The workshop
will include invited lectures, contributed papers and panel discussions.



Those who wish to contribute to the workshop should include a title and a
onepage abstract together with the application form.   Presentations by
participants from Central America on their specific area of research are
particularly welcome.



Participation



The workshop is open to researchers and students from all countries which
are members of the United Nations,  UNESCO, or IAEA. The principal objective
of the ICTP is to help researchers from developing countries through a
programme of training activities within a framework of international
cooperation. Participants should have an adequate working knowledge of
English.  Due to budget limitations, every effort should be made by
candidates to secure either total or partial support for their
expenses.  However,
funds are available exclusively for a limited number of participants who are
nationals of,  and working in, Central American countries.  Participants are
required to take part in all aspects of this activity for its entire
duration. There is no registration fee.



DEADLINE

20 SEPTEMBER 2011

Applications are to be submitted online through the activity webpage

Peace on Earth,
