On September 19th 1985 a portion of the subduction zone off-shore
Michoacán, Mexico produced a magnitude 8.1 earthquake. Mexico City, almost
400 km away, experienced heavy damage and casualties were estimated to be
between 10,000 and 40,000. The earthquake redefined the community's
understanding of seismic hazards.

On the occasion of the event's 30th anniversary we'd like to invite you to
submit an abstract to the symposium  "*Sismo 85: Advances and challenges in
seismology, engineering and risk management 30 years after the 1985
earthquake*" to be held at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México
(UNAM) campus in Mexico City on *September 17th-19th, 2015*.

Regular sessions include:

** The seismic cycle

** Subduction zones

** Networks

** Seismic hazard

** Site effects

** Early warning

** Seismic design and structural safety

** Risk management

And there will be special sessions on:

** GPS and Lidar, new geodetic tools for earthquake studies

** Active tectonics and paleoseismology

** The science of tsunamis

** Regulation and planification

** Education, preparation and responses

** Information management and financial instruments

Abstract submission is now open through the eventweb page
<http://www.sismo85.org.mx/index_ing.html> and the *deadline for submission
is June 15th, 2015*. Further information on lodging and workshops is
available through the web page.

Apologies for cross-postings cross multiple mailing lists.
