The event will consist of presentations, discussions and poster sessions. Social program will be organised for on-site participants on Tuesday (sauna) and Wednesday (excursion and dinner at city centre).

The sessions will include presentations and discussions on topics relevant for persons working with seismic analysis, technicians, data and RI managers and researchers working in the field of seismology and/or more generally in the EPOS framework.


  1. Monitoring seismology (chairs: Pasi Lindblom and Michael Roth)
  2. Introduction to posters and poster session (chair: Päivi Haapanala)
  3. Seismicity and local seismic events (chair: Kati Oinonen)
  4. Induced seismicity and hazard (chair: Heidi Soosalu)
  5. Research infrastructure management (chair: Peter Voss)
  6. Seismic hazard and risk (chairs: Mathidle Sorensen and Tommi Vuorinen)
  7. FAIRness (chair: Jan Michalek)

Additional onsite meetings:

  • Technical staff meeting (Wed at 9 o'clock)
  • Analyst meeting  (Thu at 9 o'clock)

Instructions for presenters:

  • Oral presentation slot is 15 min (12+3 min)
  • Poster presenters are invited to prepare 1-2 slides to advertise their posters (max 2 min). These poster appetizers are part of the hybrid meeting, but the actual poster session is only for onsite participants.
