4th International INQUA Meeting on Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics and Archeoseismology (PATA days) 9-15 October 2013 Aachen/Germany
In 2013 we will organize the 4th International INQUA Meeting on Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics and Archeoseismology (PATA days) in Western Germany. The last three meetings in Spain (2009), Greece (2011), and Mexico (2012) brought together more than 250 international scientists from earthquake geology and all neighbouring disciplines. We have seen fruitful and intense discussions, we kicked off dozens of joint projects and we started international collaborations and initiatives to extend the knowledge on past earthquakes. A large number of peer reviewed articles has been published in Special Volumes as an outcome of these conferences. It became clear that paleoseismological research is imperative to seismic hazard studies. It will gain even more importance in the emerging discussion on seismic safety of nuclear power plants and waste deposits, chemical industry and other critical facilities and infrastructure. During the Aachen 2013 meeting we will deepen international international collaboration, we will discuss the road map of our discipline and we will throw the points of future initiatives.
