II All-Russian Scientific Conference with International Participation
«Modern methods of seismic hazard assessment and earthquake prediction»
September, 29-30, 2021
The Conference is dedicated to the Centenary of Vladimir I. Keilis-Borok.
Vladimir Isaakovich Keilis-Borok (1921–2013), founder and the first Director of International Institute of Earthquake Prediction Theory and Mathematical Geophysics, Russian Academy of Sciences (MITPAN) in Moscow, Russian Federation, broke the barriers between high theory, numerical modelling, and data analysis for the purposes of implementation into the practice of investigation the hot, itchy and often controversial problems of Geophysics and other branches of Science.
“The major part of Keilis-Borok’s studies concerns dynamics and structure of the solid Earth, with focus on predictive understanding of seismicity. He introduced concepts of non-linear science to solid earth geophysics, considering the lithosphere as a hierarchical nonlinear system. Later on he extended his research to a wider class of non-linear complex systems in nature and society. Keilis-Borok and his school made a major breakthrough in the study of the most important and least understood feature of non-linear systems, persistent self-organization leading to abrupt overall changes. In different contexts those changes are called critical transitions, extreme events, bifurcations, disasters, catastrophes, and crises. He found basic regularities in development of critical phenomena and launched successful experiments in their advance predictions. This was done first for catastrophic earthquakes worldwide; later—for socio-economic phenomena, such as electoral change of a governing party, economic recessions, surges of unemployment, and crime waves. In collaboration with disaster management teams, he extended this work to optimization of disasters preparedness.”

The Conference sessions are devoted to the problems of Seismic Hazard Assessment, including earthquake prediction and related fields of Earth sciences, which solution is inspired by V.I. Keilis-Borok (1921-2013).
Session 1. Seismic hazard assessment, modern methods of earthquake prediction.
The session is devoted to modern approaches to the seismic hazard assessment that develop ideas of Prof. V.I. Keilis-Borok, including algorithms for predicting locations and times of the strongest seismic events in a region, along with the methods to assess reliability and confidence of forecast results, as well as the issues of relationship between geodynamics and seismicity, the innovative principles for developing new approaches to identification of safety measures intended to reduce the damage and losses from natural hazards.
Session 2. Mathematical geophysics and methods of seismological data analyzing.
The session is devoted to the methods for analysing geophysical databases (seismological, geomagnetic, global positioning systems, etc), including multidisciplinary Big Data, to new approaches for refining determination of earthquake parameters and constructing state-of-the-art models of earthquake foci based on broadband recordings of teleseismic waves, as well as to development of algorithms and techniques for detecting seismic signals against high-level noise for early warning purposes and theoretical methods for evaluating the quality of seismic monitoring algorithms. Other problems of mathematical geophysics will also be considered including but not limited to the issues of theoretical magnetohydrodynamics.
In addition we plan to organize the special session “1921-2021: the Centenary of Vladimir I. Keilis-Borok”. This section will be devoted to an overview of the Keilis-Borok’s life line, career and scientific contribution by his friends and colleagues.
The Conference will be held in a mixed in-person and on-line format. Working languages of the Conference are Russian and English. Scientific program will include plenary (20 min), sectional (15 min), and poster presentations. Young scientists, masters and graduate students are encouraged to participate.
Deadline for registration and abstract submission: September 03, 2021.
