Welcome Message

Dear Participants,

Considering the challenging situation caused by the global pandemic, the Local Organizing Committee of the 37th General Assembly (GA) of the European Seismological Commission is pleased to announce that the conference will be delivered fully virtually between 19-24 September 2021.

Always committed to organize and deliver a focused event, trying to keep the highest scientific standards, the 37th General Assembly (GA) of the European Seismological Commission will be focusing in all recent advances in seismology, where about 700 early-career and senior researchers from more than 60 countries from Europe and all over the world will virtually meet to discuss different modern fields of seismology and related applications. In addition, we are anticipating about 1000 abstracts covering the broad fields of seismic networks, seismic hazard and risk, physics of earthquakes, study of the Earth's interior, array seismology, engineering seismology, induced seismicity, seismic anisotropy, earthquake forecasting, statistical seismology, historical seismology and microseismology, recent significant earthquakes, earthquake secondary effects, as well as education, outreach and societal implications, making the 2021 ESC General Assembly one of the largest meetings ever.

Your active participation will undoubtedly contribute to a successful and productive 2021 ESC General Assembly.

Looking forward to welcoming you in our virtual conference!

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee,

Professor Nicholas Voulgaris
Vice-President of the European Seismological Commission
Vice Rector of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens
