Rapid Response to Geohazards Mini-Workshop
Hilton Portland Downtown, Portland, OR
Tuesday, October 8th, 2019, 12–5pm

IRIS will be hosting a mini-workshop to discuss a dedicated instrumentation pool for rapid response to geohazards.  Funded as a frontier activity under the recent NSF SAGE award, the rapid response to geohazards initiative aims to: 1. gather community input on instrumentation needs, and 2. procure a dedicated pool of instrumentation based on those needs.

In preparation for this mini-workshop IRIS will be hosting a series of webinars on a variety of geohazards topics throughout the summer and fall of 2019.  We see the mini-workshop as an opportunity to synthesize and distill the information presented during the webinars, and to get a broad sense of the science objectives the community would like to investigate with a rapid response pool.

If you would like to participate in this mini-workshop, please complete the online registration form by August 15th.  We have travel funds available to support attendees (where necessary).


We’d like to ask a few questions that will help us tailor the workshop agenda to the participants.
Limited travel support is available for those who would like to attend the mini-workshop but cannot cover the additional cost. Support can include per-diem costs for the day of the mini-workshop (Tuesday, October 8th) and/or hotel costs only if necessary for the night prior (Monday, October 7th). We are not able to reimburse airfare costs. Please note that those attending the SAGE/GAGE workshop (October 9-11th) are still required to pay the SAGE/GAGE registration fee.
We expect to have sufficient space to accommodate everyone who registers.  In the unlikely event that we exceed our room capacity, applicants will be added to a waitlist.
