International Conference - 30 years after the Spitak earthquake: Experience and perspectives

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): Armenia - government
Ministry of Emergency Situations (Armenia) (MES Armenia)
National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Armenia (NAS RA)

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 03 - 07 Dec 2018 Location: Armenia (Yerevan)

This Conference is dedicated to the devastating earthquake of 1988, which occurred in the north of Armenia. The Conference will take place in Yerevan on December 03-07, 2018.

The social shock caused by the Spitak earthquake brought seismological and geodynamic studies and seismic hazard and risk assessment in Armenia up to a new level. It served also an impetus to develop up-to-date studies on active tectonics and paleoseismology in the country and promoted international cooperation.

The Conference aims to bring together leading scientists as well as young scholars to present reports and exchange their experiences, as well as discuss recent innovations and further challenges in this field. The Conference will also include a visit to Gyumri and the epicentral zone.
