IRIS and the University of Chile, in collaboration with USGS/NEIC and 
UNAVCO, are organizing a workshop on /*National Geophysical Networks in 
Latin America: Best Practices, Challenges and Opportunities for 
Collaboration*/ to be held in Santiago Chile, May 25-29, 2015.

NSF is providing partial support for this workshop, with is the final 
stage of an MRI award to IRIS from NSF for collaboration with the 
University of Chile to install ten Globally Reporting Geophysical 
Observatories as part of the backbone of the new Chilean National Network.

The workshop will review best practices in the planning, installation, 
operation, and maintenance of modern networks of geophysical 
instruments. Applications in both earthquake reporting and research will 
be discussed, along with opportunities for national, regional, and 
global collaboration and data sharing. USGS will present training 
sessions on the installation and use of ShakeMap and W-Phase. The 
workshop will be aimed at scientists, network operators, students, and 
managers from Central and South American countries and international 
partners interested in developing collaborative programs in Latin 
American countries. Additional details can be found at:

Travel funds are available to support representatives from organizations 
responsible for network operators within Latin America. Limited funding 
may also be available to support early career scientists from the US -- 
especially those with specific research interests in the Pacific 
subduction zones off South and Central America. Self-supported 
participants are welcome to apply.
