To further strengthen the latest academic exchanges in the fields of tectonic deformation, numerical simulation, and geodynamics, the Institute of Geology and the Professional Committee of Geodesy and Earthquake Dynamics held a consultation seminar on crustal deformation and dynamics on October 30, 2019. The seminar attracted more than 50 scientific personnel and graduate students.

Researcher Shan Xinjian, Deputy Director of the Institute of Geology, attended the seminar and delivered a speech. First, on behalf of the Institute of Geology, he welcomed experts and scholars both inside and outside the system of the China Earthquake Administration, and thanked all experts for their presence and guidance. He expressed his hope that the young scientists and students would seize the opportunity for academic discussion and take the initiative to communicate and consult with each other.

For the seminar, Professor Wang Rongjiang from the German Research Centre for Geoscience, Professor Zheng Yong from China University of Geosciences (Wuhan), researcher WangTengfrom PekingUniversity, Associate Professor Han Peng from Southern University of Science and Technology, researcher Huang Qiongfu from the China Earthquake Networks Center, and researcher Zhao Lianfeng and Associate Research Fellow HaoJinlaifrom the Institute of Geology and Geophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, as well as many other relevant experts, were invited to participate in discussions and make keynote addresses. The conference attendees discussed the features of fault deformation, fracture inversion, the relationship between fault activity and strong earthquake preparation, the testing and evaluation of earthquake precursory information, gradual earthquake prediction in the long, medium, and short term, early warning of earthquakes, and post-earthquake loss evaluation. Representatives of scientific and technical personnel of the Institute of Geology also delivered keynote speeches and actively participated in the discussion. During the conference, scholars exchanged views on research methods, research ideas, and development trends in geodesy, numerical simulation, geodynamics, and earthquake prediction. This seminar has played a positive role in promoting interdisciplinary integration, exchange, and study of scientific research results of various units, and broadened the vision of young scientists and postgraduates. The discussion atmosphere of the seminar was harmonious and warm, and was unanimously praised by the experts, scholars, and young scientists who attended the meeting.
