Dear colleagues,

The joint *Scientific Assembly of IAG* (International Association of 
Geodesy) *and IASPEI *(International Association of Seismology and 
Physics of the Earth's Interior) will be held at the Kobe International 
Conference Center, Japan, from July 30 through August 4, 2017 .

The proposed scientific program consists of in total 43 symposia (7 IAG, 
27 IASPEI and 9 Joint symposia). Among them, *you may be interested in*

*IAG-IASPEI Joint Symposium **J02 Recent Large and Destructive Earthquakes
*


*Convener: *Thorne Lay(University of California Santa Cruz, USA)
*Co-convener:*Manabu Hashimoto (Kyoto University, Japan)

Large, damaging earthquakes continue to strike globally, producing loss 
of life and destruction in many regions around the world. In 2015 - 2016 
alone, the Gorkha (Nepal), Meinog (Taiwan), Kumamoto (Japan), Muisne 
(Ecuador), Amatrice (Italy), Kaikoura (New Zealand) and other 
earthquakes resulted in serious regional damage. Earthquake science is 
essential for revealing the nature of earthquake generation and for 
extracting lessons from these events to help society reduce the impacts 
of future events.

Geodesists and seismologists have been cooperating to unveil the secrets 
of earthquakes. Recent development and deployment of 
observation/measurement technologies such as space geodetic techniques 
(real-time GNSS, InSAR, GRACE etc.), global and regional broadband 
seismic networks, and tsunami recording systems now enable us 
characterize the full earthquake cycle and to image the rupture process 
of earthquakes with much higher resolution in space and time than before.

This session welcomes reports on all studies of recent devastating 
earthquakes with geodetic/seismological/tsunami techniques, including 
investigations of source process, slip distribution, damage, 
pre/co/post-seismic deformation, geological/geophysical structure around 
the source faults, tectonic implications, and other associated phenomena.


*Abstract*must be submitted at _http://www.iag-iaspei-2017.jp/_*by 
February 8, 2017*.

and travel information can be found at the above site.

Please come join us in KOBE,
Thorne Lay and Manabu Hashimoto
