2009 Scientific Assembly, Cape Town, South Africa
 

On behalf of IASPEI Bureau, I would like to express our sincere thanks to our friends of LOC for the successful organization of this Assembly. I would like to thank our session conveners, commissioners, working group leaders, especially keynote speakers, whose contribution made the Assembly fruitful. I would like to thank all of you for your participation in this memorable Assembly – I know that some of you are from very remote places, most of you are from another hemisphere. Especially, we would like to extend our thanks to our African colleagues - we hope and believe that seismology in Africa will have more and more contributions not only to regional sustainability but also to global geo-science.
