Young Seismologists Training Course

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics and the European Seismological Commission, will organize an Advanced School on “Seismology beyond the textbooks” from August 29th to September 2nd 2016 in Miramare, Trieste, Italy

The programme will involve a series of lectures, seminars, discussions and practical exercises on the following topics:

  • Earthquake source estimation and related uncertainties
  • Seismic ambient noise imaging and monitoring
  • Non-linearity in soil response: seismology vs geotechnical engineering
  • Understandings and misunderstandings in probabilistic seismic hazard analysis
  • The Programme is specifically designed to benefit PhD students and early career scientists that are actually working in seismology or related fields. Scientists and students from all countries which are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA may attend the School.


    A limited number of grants are available to support the travel and living expenses of selected participants, with priority given to participants working in a developing country and who are at the early stages of their career.
