Description

The conference will promote new, exploratory discussions on how to reconcile large scale regional models with small-scale controls on stress and seismicity. An emphasis will be given to the role of small scale processes and structures in controlling large scale earthquakes and regional seismicity.
The conference will be divided into 8 sessions:
* Session 1: Observation of seismicity patterns.
* Session 2: Stochastic modelling of earthquake interactions.
* Session 3: Earthquake rupture in an heterogeneous crust.
* Session 4: Non-elastic processes at the small scale and how they affect earthquake occurrence at the large scale.
* Session 5: from small to large scales: how to account for largely unresolved small scale processes in seismicity dynamics?
* Session 6: Quality of earthquake catalogues and uncertainties in seismicity modelling.
* Session 7: Measuring and modelling seismic responses to stress changes.
* Session 8: Statistical volcano seismology.
