Fourth All-Russian сonference
with international participation

"Trigger effects in geosystems"

6-9 June, 2017 / Moscow

Dear scientists, engineers, and researchers!

We welcome you cordially to Moscow on June 6 - 9, 2017 to participate in the International conference “Trigger effects in geosystems”.

The conference is organized by the Institute of Geospheres' Dynamics of Russian Academy of Sciences and will provide a multidisciplinary stage with a focus on (i) the influence of natural and anthropogenic factors on geospheres, geomechanical systems and anthropogenic objects found in a subcritical state and (ii) the influence of those factors on the system “atmosphere - ionosphere”.

The conference will comprise plenary and keynote lectures, scientific sessions, poster sessions, and workshops.

The book of abstracts will be published by the beginning of the conference. The abstract should summarize the main goals, results and conclusions of the paper.

The conference proceedings will be published after the conference. Only the presenting authors can submit full-text papers. Proceedings will include a limited number of papers.

Registration fee

Registration fee is 1500 RUB. Registration fee includes participation in conference sessions, participant's bag, conference program and refreshments.

• Structure and properties of fault zones. Movements along faults. Links to seismicity.

• Different regimes of fault slip. Mechanics, links to fault structure and mutual influence of different fault slip modes.

• Monitoring the stress-strain state of a rock massif. Searching for and validating the methods of partial stress relaxation. Mining seismicity.
