Dear colleagues/staffs/students,

The 36th International Geological Congress (IGC) is taking place from 2nd to 8th of March 2020 in Delhi, India. The 287 sessions/symposia of the scientific program cover all disciplines of geological sciences https://www.36igc.org/science-program. The IGC is a global event that takes place every 4 years, the most recent ones have been held in Capetown, South Africa (2016), and Brisbane, Australia (2012).

Abstracts can be submitted online at https://www.36igc.org/abstract-submission and are free of charge until 15th September 2019. Afterwards the abstract fee will be 20 USD with a final submission deadline of 15th October 2019.

Travel support

This year’s IGC involves GeoHost, a support program designed to enable 1000 young or financially disadvantaged geoscientists to attend the IGC. Find out if you are eligible here: https://www.36igc.org/geohost-program.


The Super Early Bird registration ends already at the end of this week (31st of August). For the Early Bird you still have a bit of time (30th of November 2019). More details here: https://www.36igc.org/congress-registration. 

I take this opportunity to invite you to submit an abstract to our session/symposium: We look forward to seeing you in Delhi. Please visit the web site and submit abstract in the session  

41.3 Statistical Seismology 
J. Zhuang zhuangjc at ism.ac.jp (Japan) S. S. Teotia (UK) D. Shanker (India)
Dr. J. Zhuang  is Associate professor at Institute of Statistical Mathematics, Tachikawa, Tokyo, Japan.  
Prof. Teotia  is professor in Department of Geophysics, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, India. The area of specialization is non-linear processes in seismology, fractal/multifractal studies of various regions, seismic hazard assessment, earthquake ground motion simulation etc.  
 Dr. D. Shanker,  Associate Professor, Department of Earthquake Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, Roorkee, Uttarakhand, India  
This symposium will provide researchers an opportunity to assess recent developments and delineate future directions of research in statistical seismology. The main challenge in statistical seismology is to understand the statistical behaviour of earthquake occurrence, earthquake physics, time-dependent earthquake forecasting. This symposium will cover presentations on various fields of statistical seismology including: (1) Recent development of statistical models and methodologies for seismicity analysis, especially on rate/state dependent friction law, seismicity rate changes, recurrence model for characteristic earthquakes, clustering models; (2) Understanding of the earthquake physics through statistical analysis, such as nucleation, friction, faulting, earthquake triggering, induced seismicity, and interactions between seismic and slow slip, tremors, (3) Probabilistic Earthquake forecasts and forecast evaluations; earthquake hazard mitigation. (4) Case applications of statistical seismology to large-to-great earthquakes operational forecasts.   
Keywords:  Statistical descriptions of earthquake occurrences, earthquake physics, earthquake forecast, statistical model of seismicity, earthquake interaction, clustering, induced seismicity, earthquake triggering  

With best regards, 

Prof. Dr. Daya SHANKER
