About the Symposium

The second joint Seismology/Earthquake Engineering/DOD symposium on seismic instrumentation technology is being conveniently held following the ASL 50th anniversary. The goal of this symposium is to identify the needs of field operators-what are the technologies and issues that make deploying or operating instruments hard, whether from observational capabilities (e.g., data quality, bandwidth, dynamic range, etc.) or logistical needs, or O&M perspectives?

Speakers from relevant "communities" (permanent observatories, portable and transportable experiments, ocean bottom deployments, regional network operators, strong motion, structures) will offer perspectives on what is hard/expensive to do now, what they would like to be able to do, etc. Manufacturers will be invited to bring posters and to give brief poster introductions during the meeting.
