Seismic Instrumentation Technology Symposium
Sheraton Albuquerque Airport Hotel , Albuquerque , New Mexico , USA

Organized by the IRIS Instrumentation Committee



The theme of this symposium is to examine future technology, both from the perspective of capabilities scientists and engineers are seeking and the technologies that are, or will be, in the product pipeline of the seismic technology industry. The symposium will provide a forum for perspectives from both technology users and vendors and allow generous time for discussion and interaction.

Posters on any seismic technology-related topic are welcome, and all poster presenters will be given an opportunity to provide a short verbal overview of their poster.


Timing and Location

The symposium will take place in Albuquerque, NM on Monday and Tuesday, June 10-11th. Registration is free and will remain open until May 24th.
