In an exciting new format, the 4-day meeting will consist of a one-day technical program preceded and followed by a series of workshops and exercises that will offer attendees hands-on training in earthquake reconnaissance and showcase opportunities for members to become involved in LFE projects and activities.

The week will end with a Reconnaissance Training Workshop on Thursday, April 13 with partner organizations, followed by an exciting Reconnaissance Field Exercise that will provide a hands-on opportunity to exercise earthquake clearinghouse operations and improve reconnaissance coordination. The 2023 Undergraduate Seismic Design Competition will take place throughout the week, with shaking day on Thursday open to all attendees.
