The recent dramatic increase (and more recent decline) of seismic activity in Oklahoma poses both scientific questions and environmental/economic challenges. Understanding the controlling factors of seismicity requires significant research efforts in multiple disciplines of geosciences and engi-neering. Oklahoma represents a natural laboratory of tectonic and induced seismicity. Many researchers from Oklahoma universities (University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, Uni-versity of Tulsa, etc.), state agencies (Oklahoma Geological Survey, Oklahoma Corporation Commission) and energy compa-nies are investigating a wide range of topics related to these earthquakes (http://earthquakes.ou.edu). In addition, adjacent states with potentially induced seismicity are engaged in activities related to the work in Oklahoma.
We propose to have a two-day workshop, February 20-21, 2018 in Norman, Oklahoma. The workshop will allow researchers from Oklahoma and other states, Federal agencies, the energy industry, and other interested parties to meet and discuss mod-els of tectonic versus-induced earthquakes, as well as explore practical procedures to mitigate seismic hazard.
The workshop will address topics such as:
At the workshop, we will discuss current progress from individual research groups, main chal-lenges and research needs for understanding the phenomena, and we will seek to coordinate future collaborative research plans, which may lead to medium-to-longer-term multi-disciplinary projects. The workshop is meant to be informal and to facilitate current and future collaboration, so that even projects at early stages of development are invited to discuss plans and objectives. The struc-ture of the workshop will likely involve panel discussions on topical areas, with short (12-15 min-ute) presentations and extensive discussion periods.
Persons or teams interested in a presentation should submit a title and a ~200-word abstract, in-cluding whether the presentation will be of work planned, in progress, or nearing completion to: firstname.lastname@example.org . Presenters will be asked to complete a release form to include a Web-publishable version of the presentation in the workshop summary report. That version may delete sensitive or proprietary material presented at the workshop. The Workshop Organizers prefer presentations that can be released publicly.

The teaser tested everyone’s patience. But the waiting has lasted long enough. Finally, the video “INTRAW – Discover the Project” has arrived! Discover the purpose of this H2020 initiative, its importance in today’s society and, last but not least, enjoy a quick preview of what the final outcome will be: the International Raw Materials Observatory.
The Observatory will be presented at two major events scheduled during the European Commission's Raw Materials Week (6-10 November):
The Observatory's launch will be celebrated during a morning session of the EU-Advanced Mining Countries conference organised by DG Grow on 7 November 2017 (11:00-12:30). In addition, as one of the services the Observatory will provide in the future, an international match-making session between industry and research organisations active in the raw materials sector is organised at the end of this conference (17:20-19:00). Registration for this event is now closed.
An open roundtable on the challenges of international cooperation is organised on 8 November 2017 (14:00-15:30). The aim of this roundtable is to discuss the challenges of international collaboration on mineral raw materials. The roundtable is co-organised by the International Raw Materials Observatory and FORAM Project. Register now for this event using the following form.
