Scope of the workshop:

The most recent catastrophic earthquakes (1999 Chichi, Taiwan, 2004 Sumatra, 2008 Sichuan, China, 2011 Tohoku, Japan, and 2015 in Nepal) claimed thousands of lives and caused extensive economic losses. The year of 2020 is also the 25th year of remembering the 1995 Kobe Earthquake and 5th year of remembering of the 2015 Nepal Earthquake disasters in Japan and Nepal. Still, the International science community is looking for solutions in the early detection of major seismic events in order to minimize the loss of human life. Multiple detections of earthquake precursory signals have been reported before, and the new observations from space and ground have provided new evidence about the existence of pre-earthquake processes. The latest studies revealed the pre-earthquake signals statistical significance, repeatability, universality, and effectiveness for the forecast. In this workshop, while still discussing the applicability of pre-earthquake signals towards short-term earthquake forecasting, we contemplate exploring different physical mechanisms for the generation and propagation of pre-earthquake signals. Discussions on earthquake forecast testing, multi-parameter observation, and international joint research are also included.


  • General discussion on earthquake preparation process and the physics of pre-earthquake signals;

  • Statistical analyses of earthquake precursors;

  • Theory, modeling, laboratory experiments, computational simulation for generation and propagation of pre-earthquake signals and their connection with the seismic cycle;

  • Multi-parameter observations, detection, and validation of pre-earthquake signals Integration of multi-parameter observation and related projects and results;

  • Cross-disciplinary studies, practical, and technical approaches for better understanding of earthquake preparation processes and their connection with seismicity;

  • Presentations on the latest developments in earthquake predictability and prospective testing associated with major earthquakes are welcomed;

  • Other related topics on earthquake preparation processes Venue The workshop will be held at Chiba University (Nishi-Chiba Campus), Chiba, Japan on May 29 – 30, 2020.
