Organizing committee

Recent developments within ORFEUS
and forthcoming activities 

Network and Data Centre operations 

AASN - AlpArray Seismic Network 

Mobile Seismic Pools (MSP)

Ocean Bottom Seismometers parks (OBS)

This workshop is sponsored by ORFEUS and EPOS.


The goal of the 2016 ORFEUS Annual Observatory Coordination meeting is to provide network and station operators an opportunity to meet, exchange and discuss experiences and knowledge on recent and current developments in e.g. seismic network operations, data management and exchange and community tools.  

The 2016 meeting will be organized together with (and followed by) an EPOS-IP WP8-Seismology Workshop on OBS (Ocean Bottom Seismometers) and Mobile Seismic Pools (MSP) coordination to efficiently integrate data from these communities within the European Integrated Data Archive (EIDA: www.orfeus-eu.org/eida), a key infrastructure of ORFEUS and EPOS architectures. 
The combined 2016 meeting will specifically focus on the following topics: 

- enhanced collaboration between ORFEUS and the seismic        networks in the Balkan region;

- recent developments in network and data centre operations;  

- the AlpArray seismic network deployment;  

- enhanced coordination between the Mobile Seismic Pools (MSP) and Ocean Bottom Seismometers (OBS) communities in ORFEUS.  

The combined '2016 ORFEUS Annual Observatory Coordination
/ EPOS-IP WP8-Seismology meeting' will be sponsored by ORFEUS and EPOS-IP and will take place from 25 to 28 October 2016 in Dubrovnik, Croatia, at the Hotel Neptun. All sessions in the combined workshop are open to all participants. As ORFEUS is the Infrastructure for seismic waveform data within EPOS-IP the WP8 participants are strongly encouraged to participate in this workshop, in particular from the OBS and MSP communities.  

The number of participants for the workshop is limited.

Participants who will need a VISA and/or financial support must complete and send the applications ASAP.
