Dear Colleagues,

It is known that there have been many devastating earthquakes in countries that have coasts to the Aegean Sea, causing loss of life and property in instrumental and historical periods. A number of studies have been carried out for many years on the seismic sources of these earthquakes occurring in the Aegean region between the Hellenic subduction zone and the North Anatolian Fault. This special issue aims to reveal the latest scientific findings in geological, geomorphological, seismological, paleoseismological and geodetic investigations conducted today on seismogenic sources in the Aegean region. Participants at the International workshop on “Active Tectonics and Seismicity of the Aegean Region with special emphasis on the 30 October 2020 Samos Earthquake" are warmly invited to contribute, but also any original study on the seismic hazard and risk assessment of the Aegean region is welcome.

This special issue is dedicated to the people who passed away during the earthquake of 30 October 2020.

Key words: seismicity, Aegean Region, Active Faults, Tsunami, Seismic Hazards
