· On 22 February 2012
IGCP will celebrate its 40th Anniversary
at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris. Two of our co-leaders will actively participate at this meeting. Iain Stewart (University of Plymouth, U.K.) will focus on the importance of Geosciences for Society
and moderate a debate on the prospective vision for the future of IGCP
. Manuel Sintubin (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium) will reflect on the role of IGCP in geohazard mitigation
based on the success of IGCP567.
·In November 2012 we are furthermore planning an international workshop Shakin’ them off? Interdisciplinary perspectives on Minoan Earthquakes, convened by Simon Jusseret (Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium) and Manuel Sintubin (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium), which will take place in Leuven (Belgium).
For both conferences IGCP567 will most probably (depending on our funding) be able to offer travel grants.
·At the EGU meeting
(20-24 April 2012, Vienna, Austria) Matthieu Ferry (Géosciences Montpellier, France) and Kris Vanneste (ROB, Belgium) convene a session on Earthquake Geology
. Abstract submission deadline is 17 January 2012
