|Abstract:||In Trieste, during the 35th General Assembly of the European Seismological Commission (ESC), the Department of Geosciences at the University of Malta was chosen to host the 36th General Assembly (Fig. 1). The city of Valletta won the bid among competition from three other European cities. The event took place at the Mediterranean Conference Centre (Fig. 2) from the 2–7 September 2018 and was preceded by a one-week Young Seismologists Training Course (YSTC; Fig. 3). The ESC is a commission within the International Association for Seismology and Physics of the Earth’s Interior, whose General Assembly takes place every two years. It is primarily a meeting ground for academics and researchers working in the field of seismology and related applications, including applied and social aspects of seismology, such as earthquake hazard and risk, earthquake engineering, education and awareness, and risk prevention.|
