Toward Data Lakes for Recorded and Simulated Earthquake Ground Motions


This workshop seeks to foster collaboration and discussions on the exploration and definition of a standardized format for both real earthquake motion data and numerical modeled synthetics, collect and give access to the available/ready-prepared data and synthetics from research groups around the world, explore data lake platform options, identify target user groups and examine potential engineering uses of such data lakes.

The initiative builds upon the discussions and meetings organized by the Consortium of Organizations for Strong Motion Observation Systems (COSMOS) in the past two years (

There are 25 invited and 25 open on-site seats, with unlimited capacity for online participants.

Registration deadline : 5th July 2024

Please note that registration is free for both invited and open-registration participants. However, free accommodation is only provided for invited participants. Additionally, transportation expenses will not be covered for any participants.

Target Audience:

This workshop is aimed at experienced scientists working in fields such as physics-based numerical modeling, seismology, and earthquake engineering, as well as related fields like insurance and data lakes. It is designed for both users and creators of data lakes.

The meeting will be conducted via Zoom for online participants, and recordings will be made available online afterward. Those unable to attend in person can register for online participation.

We promote equality, diversity and inclusion under the advice of the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Panel at all events organized as part of Geo-INQUIRE. In particular, we support registrations from women, early career scientists and people from widening countries.
