Dear Working Group members,

This year, the IAG-IASPEI joint assembly will be held from 30 July to 4 August in Kobe, Japan.

There are 9 IAG-IASPEI joint symposia, 7 IAG symposia and 27 IASPEI symposia. The titles, contents and names of conveners of the symposia are posted at the conference website:

The abstract submission page is already open. The deadline for abstract submission as well as financial support is set as February 8. You are encouraged to visit the above site and submit the abstracts before the deadline.
S06 Advancement in methodologies for CTBT monitoring

Convener: Tormod Kværna (NORSAR, Norway)
Co-convener: Michelle Grobbelaar (Council for Geoscience, South Africa), Ik-Bum Kang (Korea Institute of Geosciences and Mineral Resources, Korean Republic), Stephen C. Myers (Livermore, CA, USA)
The waveform networks (seismic, infrasound and hydroacoustic) of the International Monitoring System (IMS) for verifying compliance with the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) together currently consist of more than 200 high-quality stations distributed worldwide. Data from these stations has become a very important asset in the development of methods and the performance of experiments related to nuclear explosion monitoring, as well as for basic earth scientific studies. In this session we call for papers focusing on recent research and developments in seismology and seismoacoustics advancing the capability to monitor compliance with the CTBT. Examples include analysis of seismic and infrasound signals from the DPRK nuclear explosions, absolute and relative event locations, improvement in seismic velocity models, event characterization and identification, processing methods for arrays, three-component stations and networks, as well as specific field experiments.

Best regards,
Istvan Bondar
