ES-SSA 2023 Annual Meeting

ES-SSA Annual Meeting

22-24 October in Dallas, Texas

The ES-SSA 2023 Annual Meeting will be hosted by Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. The meeting will take place in-person from 22-24 October 2023. All presentations (oral and poster presentations) will be in-person and require in-person registration.

While ES-SSA focuses primarily on advancing earthquake science in Central and Eastern North America and intraplate seismology, we also particularly welcome contributions on earthquake engineering, induced earthquakes and advances in seismo-acoustics, which are all topics of particular long-standing interest to seismologists in Texas. The annual ES-SSA meeting always welcomes contributions from other aspects of earthquake and seismological studies.

Scientific sessions on 23-24 October will be held at Frances Anne Moody Hall at Southern Methodist University. The 22 October Ice Breaker and the 23 October Annual Banquet and Jesuit Society Award Ceremony will be held at The Lumen Dallas, located within a 5-10 minute walk of the meeting venue.

Field Trip – 22 October

Join us in our explorations of southern Oklahoma.  We will visit exposure of the Arbuckle Formation (also known as the Ellenburger Formation in Texas), lunch at Turner Falls in the Arbuckle Mountains, and travel to the Meers Fault.  It will be a fun day discussing induced earthquakes, enjoying fried pies at the overlook where the first seismic reflection experiment was conducted, exploring the beautiful Arbuckle Mountains, and discussing the tectonics and hazard of the Meer Fault.  The field trip fees, assessed upon registration, include lunch and fried pies!  ES-SSA members and non-members $70; Students $50

If a long field trip does not fit your travel schedule, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science is located in downtown Dallas and is an easy DART trip or ride share from SMU.  The Perot has an excellent mineral exhibit, a dynamic earth hall that includes human shake table, and a unique energy hall with a ‘ride’ down into a fracked horizontal. A truly unique Texas experience!
