European Seismological Commission
The ESC organizes biannual General Assemblies, usually with 300-600 participants, and fosters workshops and seminars on specific topics between the Assemblies. The results of the meetings are published in proceedings and in special issues of scientific journals. Recommendations and resolutions are adopted at each Assembly.
The first ESC Training course for young seismologists was organised in connection with the XXV ESC General Assembly in Reykjavík, Iceland in 1996. Since then, the Young Seismologist Training Course has taken place on the week preciding or following each General Assembly. Up to 65 young seismologists have attended each course. They have obtained insights into seismology under the tutorship of established seismologists from Europe and overseas. The courses have been co-sponsored by IASPEI and other institutions.
