Organizing Committee

The 4th edition of the Brazilian Seismology Symposium has the support of the CERESIS consortium. It aims at promoting the engagement of students and researchers working in seismology and related fields anywhere in Latin America. One of the greatest achievements of the Brazilian seismology community has been the implementation and operation of the Rede Sismográfica Brasileira.
