Workshop on Micromechanics, Statistics, and Hazards of Mechanical Failure


Date: 19th - 22th October 2020

Venue: Online via Zoom (access details below)

Host: Dr. Álvaro González, on behalf of the organizing committee

We are happy to announce the call for attendees to the Workshop on Micromechanics, Statistics, and Hazards of Mechanical Failure that will take place as a virtual event on October 19-22, 2020. Several of the presentations deal with earthquakes and deformation, damage and faulting of rocks, so they may be of interest to the geophysical community. Attendance is free but the number of attendees is limited on a first come, first served basis.

The schedule and information can be found here: 

This interdisciplinary workshop aims to establish a common understanding of the theoretical foundations and the practical characterization of avalanche phenomena  and precursors to  failure in mechanical systems, stimulating new interdisciplinary collaborations between professionals and scholars working in different areas and contexts.

If you are not a registered participant, and you wish to attend the workshop, please use this registration form: 

The event will be broadcast in Zoom. Registered attendees will receive an invitation to access the online oral sessions and the display repository. We will enable additional mechanisms for feedback and discussion during the workshop.

Please do not hesitate to spread this information among your peers.

We are looking forward to meeting you!
