The primary objectives for the workshop are to:
Applications for participation are accepted from:
Participants are expected to submit an abstract for an oral presentation on the topics of the workshop, as there will be no poster sessions.
To strengthen the capacity of the States Signatories’ participation in the verification regime and to enhance their use of PTS data and products for civil and scientific applications using SeisComP.
The workshop aims to discuss the use of High-Performance Computing (HPC) to support monitoring the world for any nuclear explosions on the ground, in the ocean and in the atmosphere.
The target audience for the workshop will consist of scientists, engineers, and other persons with expertise in High‑Performance Computing, Machine Learning, and Seismic, Hydroacoustic, Infrasound, Atmospheric Transport, and radionuclide simulation and data analysis.
Please be informed that the Provisional Technical Secretariat (PTS) solicits presentations and posters from participants on the topics of the Workshop for travel funding applications.
The objective of this technical meeting is to continue the process of completing the IDC Validation and Acceptance Test Plan (VATP). The focus for this particular meeting will be to;
This meeting allows state signatories to learn about software development efforts at the IDC. Several efforts are ongoing to improve the software in use at the IDC, and NDC software shared with state signatories via NDC-in-a-Box. The PTS is currently in Phase 3 of the IDC SHI Reengineering program, which includes a large-scale effort to improve the SHI processing system, SOH, and the Analyst Interface. The PTS will modernize the software infrastructure to make the system easier to maintain, and easier to upgrade. The goal is a modern, maintainable, flexible, pipeline processing system. Progress is ongoing, and many states have participated in the Alpha Testers Group for Reengineering. In addition, many other software development efforts are also ongoing to improve IDC product distribution, NIAB, routine data processing, and processing for Expert Technical Analysis. This meeting allows experts to discuss such software updates in depth, and give review and feedback.
Experts responsible for software development for waveform monitoring at National Data Centres.
Experts involved in software development for environmental monitoring applications, particularly in waveform methods, including signal processing, user interfaces, and database systems.
Participants should have in-depth knowledge of at least one aspect of SHI data processing at the IDC.
The PTS is leading the IDC SHI Reengineering project since 2014 with the goal of creating modernized, open-source software for SHI processing, and improving maintainability and extensibility to the system. Starting 2019, the project entered the Implementation phase and is currently under active development.
The aim of this Alpha Tester Group (ATG) is to enhance the engagement of the NDC community towards the IDC Reengineering project. It allows low-barrier access for State Signatories and NDCs to the current state of the reengineered system.
The role of the ATG participants is to validate the results of the system and provide feedback to the system design and usability.
Current ATG activities are planned for biennial 2022-2023. Participants already selected in 2022 for this biennial do not need to reapply. New candidates will be accepted to fill open positions in 2023.
The objectives of the Technical Meetings prior to a testing session are to:
The ATG project is funded by the European Union in the context of the EU Council Decision (CFSP) 2020/901 of 29 June 2020.
