 To promote academic exchanges and international cooperation by the State Key Laboratory for Earthquake Dynamics, the laboratory held the "Workshop on Tectonic Deformation and Earthquake Mechanism" in Beijing on May 9 and 10, 2018. More than 100 scientific research personnel and graduate students from Japan, the Netherlands, Singapore, Russia, Canada, France, the United States, Hong Kong and domestic earthquake systems, and systems of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, as well as universities, attended the seminar. At the seminar, the director, Ma Shengli, delivered a welcome speech on behalf of the Institute of Geology and the State Key Laboratory of Earthquake Dynamics and briefly introduced the research direction of the Institute of Geology and the laboratory. Fourteen scholars from overseas and Hong Kong as well as six scholars from the key laboratory were invited to give presentations.

The delegates at the conference discussed and exchanged views on the physical and mechanical properties of the earth's internal medium, experimental studies of fault mechanics and earthquake mechanism, surface structural deformation and deep geophysics. The seminar content was wonderful, the atmosphere was active, and the discussion was thorough. The conference received widespread praise from the domestic and foreign scholars who participated. During the seminar, overseas experts also visited the State Key Laboratory of Earthquake Dynamics to view the structural physics experimental equipment.
