Abstract

The National Research Foundation of the USA (National Science Foundation), as part of its plan to minimize the risk from earthquakes (National Earthquake Hazard Reduction Program) organized an international conference from 14 to 17 June 1992 in Lake Arrowhead, close to Los Angeles, California, entitled “Low–Frequency Electrical Precursors: Fact or Fiction?” Thirty-seven scientists and specialists on the topic were invited to participate. The participants came from different countries (Japan, China, Canada, France, Sweden, Russia, etc., and from Greece Alexopoulos, Varotsos and myself) and from various universities and research institutes in the USA, such as the University of California at Riverside, the University of California at Berkeley, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Texas A & M, NASA, and the U.S. Geological Survey.
