Description The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics and the European Seismological Commission, will organize an Advanced School on “Seismology beyond the textbooks” from August 29th to September 3rd 2016. The programme will involve a series of lectures, seminars, discussions and practical exercises in the following topics: Earthquake source estimation and related uncertainties Seismic ambient noise imaging and monitoring Non-linearity in soil response: seismology vs geotechnical engineering Understandings and misunderstandings in probabilistic seismic hazard analysis The Programme is specifically designed to benefit PhD students and early career scientists that are actually working in seismology or related fields.

Following this school the 35rd General Assembly of the European Seismological Commission (GA ESC) takes place from 4 to 10 September, 2016 in the town center of Trieste, Italy. For information, see link http://www.35esc2016.eu/
