About the event: 

The Megathrust Dynamics Symposium, part of the 14th International Conference on Fracture, will take place on Rhodes, Greece, in June 18-23, 2017. The symposium will gather experts in various aspects of faulting and earthquake mechanics to discuss various topics related to megathrust dynamics. The focus will be on observational and theoretical earthquake physics, including rheology, friction, the strength of the lithosphere, and more focused subjects related to tectonic geodesy, structural geology, seismology, and the physical modeling of deformation.
