2015 ORFEUS Annual Observatory Coordination meeting

The 2015 ORFEUS Annual Observatory Coordination meeting will take place in Bucharest, Romania, on

21-24 September 2015

The workshop will be hosted and co-organised by NIEP (National Institute for Earth Physics, Bucharest)

The goal of these annual meetings is to provide network and station operators an opportunity to exchange experiences and knowledge on recent and current relevant developments in e.g. seismic network operations, data management and community tools. At these meetings we also encourage the presentation of new relevant developments by academic and research institutes aimed at facilitating a wide range of observatory operations and activities.

Considering the developments of the European Integrated Data Archive (EIDA: www.orfeus-eu.org/eida) within ORFEUS, the fast growing of the Strong Motion community (www.orfeus-eu.org/rrsm), the on-going challenging IT developments and other forthcoming activities in European seismology, the 2015 Observatory Coordination meeting will focus on the following topics:

  • (Meta)data management and EIDA
  • Quality assurance
  • Attribution and data policies
  • Strong motion community workshop on site characterization
  • Joint SeisComP3 and ObsPy communities workshop

A second announcement with a preliminary agenda and practical information will become available in early July via this website.

This annual workshop will be sponsored by ORFEUS and NIEP.
