School for Young Scientists
"System Analysis and Seismic Hazard Assessment"

Moscow, 12-15 July 2016 Venue: Lomonosov Moscow State University

The School is funded by Russian Science Foundation (RSF) within the framework of RSF Project 15-17-30020 "Application of systems analysis for estimation of seismic hazard in the regions of Russia" and will be endorsed by Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA), International Council for Science.

The subject area of the School will be devoted to the new methods developed recently for seismic hazard assessment and integration on the basis of the systems analysis of results obtained by these methods. Examples of seismic hazard assessment for specific regions will be also considered.

Lectures at the School will be given by leading scientists representing

Lectures will focus on the following specific topics:
  • application of the artificial intelligence techniques for determination of areas prone to large earthquake;
  • morphostructural zoning and its usage for determination of areas prone to large earthquake;
  • seismic hazard assessment based on the Unified Scaling Law for Earthquakes (USLE) that generalizes the Gutenberg-Richter law;
  • system algorithmic approach to seismic hazard assessment;
  • modeling of blocks-and-faults system dynamics and seismicity;
  • relevant subjects of data mining and advanced systems analysis.
