Dear Colleagues,

Abstract submission for the 2013 SSA meeting (17-19 April 2013) is now open and we would like to point out a special session on "Toward an Integrated Understanding of Slow Earthquakes: What We Know, What We Don't Know, and How to Move Forward". We encourage your contribution and participation. Abstract submission deadline is 10 January 2013. Please feel free to forward this email to anyone
potentially interested.

Towards an Integrated Understanding of Slow Earthquakes: What We Know, What We Don’t Know, and How to Move Forward

Investigations of fault slip behavior in the last decade revealed a new class of slow earthquakes. Although rapid progress continues to be made in understanding these new phenomena, the mechanisms and relationships between the variety of slow fault slip behaviors remains enigmatic. Despite numerous studies that utilize observations, theoretical models, and/or laboratory measurements, a unified understanding of these fault slip behaviors does not appear to exist. The purpose of this session is to showcase the current state of knowledge of slow earthquakes, highlight the differences from one tectonic setting to the next, and propose an integrated perspective of the possible relationship between behaviors such as slow slip, tectonic tremor, slow earthquakes, and, ultimately, great earthquakes. Abstracts that combine models, laboratory measurements, and observations are strongly encouraged. We also encourage abstracts that highlight the similarities and differences of cross-disciplinary observations, and comparative studies that examine and explain the differences between geographic regions.
