 In order to better advance the research on the projects related to theGPS, InSAR and crustal deformation, undertaken by the State Key Laboratory of Earthquake Dynamics,and plan the next research points, a symposium on crustal deformation and continental dynamics of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and its neighboring region was held on December 10-11, 2015.

The State Key Laboratory of Earthquake Dynamics organized this meeting. The meeting invited the prof. Sun Wenke from University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, prof. Wang Rongjiang from German GFZ, prof. Hu Zhiqing from Taiwan University, prof. He Jiankun and Zhao Junmeng from the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research of Chinese Academy of Sciences, prof. Wu Jianping from the Institute of Geophysics of CEA, prof. Wan Yongge from the Institute of Disaster Prevention, prof. Meng Guojie from the Institute of Earthquake Science of CEA,prof. Liu Qiyuan and Wen Xueze from the Institute of Geology of CEA, associate prof.Zhang Guohong and some other people to the Institute for communication. Numerous scientific problems related to Qinghai-Tibet Plateau have been discussed such as the multi-scale modern tectonic movement images, field of tectonic stress and strain, deep structures, seismogenic environment, relation between fault activity and strong earthquake preparation, and so on.

In this symposium, the scientific researchers not only fully exchanged the research progress in some issues concerning crustal deformation and dynamics of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and its neighboring regionand put forward a series of new scientific issues, but also communicated on methods, approaches and ideas. The meeting played a positive role in promoting multi-disciplinary integration, exchange of scientific achievements from institutes, and broadening the horizon of our scientific research personnel and postgraduates.
