Symposium Program

2018 The 5th International Symposium on Mega Earthquake Induced Geo-disasters and Long Term Effects

The Conference program book is ready to be downlaod (click to download) (点击下载会议通知)


The conference will be held in Chengdu on 3 consecutive days: Saturday, May 12 to Monday, May 14 and will be followed by two fieldtrip days on May 15 and 16.  The general theme of the conference is:

Mega Earthquake Induced Geo-disasters and their Long Term Effects

During 6 half day sessions of 3 ½ hours (8.30 – 12.00 and 13.30 – 17.00) keynote lectures, invited lectures and short presentations of selected submitted abstracts will be given: keynote lectures (30 minutes, including discussion) during the morning sessions, invited lectures (20 minutes, including discussion)and submitted abstracts (15 minutes, including discussion) in the afternoon sessions. The morning sessions will be plenary, the afternoon sessions may be parallel sessions for 2 different themes if enough abstracts are selected for presentation by the organizing committee. There is room for the presentation of posters (single side poster A1 size [594mm×841mm]) near the area for coffee and tea breaks
