Slow-to-Fast Earthquake Workshop in Taiwan was held

The self-invited workshop, “Slow-to-Fast Earthquake Workshop in Taiwan” was held on March 13 and 14, 2023, at National Cheng Kung University in Tainan City, southern Taiwan. After oral and poster presentations and breakout sessions for collaborative research were held during the first two days, the workshop was followed from the 15th to the 17th at most by a series of presentations on mud volcanoes in Kaohsiung, creep faults in Taitung, and the Milun fault drilling and all-inclusive sensing project in Hualien. The tour included a visit to a mud volcano in Kaohsiung, a creep fault in Taitung, and the observation facilities of the Milun fault Drilling and All-inclusive Sensing project (MiDAS) in Hualien. There were 127 participants, including 39 from Japan. In late February, prior to this workshop, three researchers from Group B01 also gave lectures at Cheng Kung University, Yang-Ming Jiao Tong University, and Academia Sinica Institute of Earth Sciences, taking advantage of the framework of bilateral exchange between Japan and Taiwan regarding new technologies. Through these exchanges, researchers and students from both Japan and Taiwan deepened exchanges while introducing the latest research and technological developments being conducted in their respective fields.

The workshop was broadcasted on  TV in Taiwan.
