Scope: The International Federation of Digital Seismograph Networks
(FDSN) is a global organization. Its membership is comprised of groups
responsible for the installation and maintenance of seismographs
either within their geographic borders or globally. Membership in the
FDSN is open to all organizations that operate more than one broadband
station. Members agree to coordinate station siting and provide free
and open access to their data. This cooperation helps scientists all
over the world to further the advancement of earth science and
particularly the study of global seismic activity. The FDSN also holds
commission status within IASPEI.
We encourage technical/scientific contributions providing an overview
of networks intending to become member of the FDSN, new transformative
developments at FDSN member networks and innovative technical
developments that have had a significant impact on facilitating and
promoting efficient transnational real-time data exchange. The session
will be accompanied by a number of side meetings of the different FDSN
