Call for Webinar Proposals


Turkish Journal of Mathematics cordially invites your proposals for the online mathematics webinar to be held on 1-3 February 2022 via the Zoom platform. Researchers are welcomed to have contributions related to any aspect of Geometry, Algebra and Applied Mathematics and their related topics.

Turkish Journal of Mathematics, https://journals.tubitak.gov.tr/math/index.htm, is a Science Citation Index Expanded journal publishing high-quality research articles and it is published by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK).

The aim of this webinar is to create an environment where scientists from different fields especially algebra, geometry and applied mathematics from all over the world can share their great experiences and at the same time raise awareness of career opportunities available to postgraduate students/graduate fellows and researchers in various fields of mathematics. Therefore, this event aims to vigorously discuss the hottest and interdisciplinary topics in the related fields at advanced and engaging levels.

The webinar welcomes proposals of original contributions electronically via the system. All authors need to submit their abstracts within the deadline making sure that all author details are complete. The corresponding and presenting authors must be clearly identified when doing so. All abstracts must be prepared according to the template.

Abstracts of the accepted papers will appear in a short book of abstracts. TÜBİTAK Academic Journals strictly advice and encourage the authors to submit their prepared papers of high-quality ones to the Turkish Journal of Mathematics after the webinar for a possible evaluation in a regular issue. The decision process of submitted high-quality articles, including the peer-review process, will be completed within one month.

The interested contributors are highly encouraged to submit their proposals to the webinar via http://math2022.tubitak.gov.tr.

For additional information, you can reach the program from the webinar webpage, http://math2022.tubitak.gov.tr and contact via email.

A special issue dedicated to Prof. Dr. Aykut Barka

“From coseismic surface rupture to long-term behavior of faulting”


Aykut Barka (1952- 2002) was an internationally distinguished Turkish earth scientist in earthquake research, a pioneer in cultivating the Active Tectonic studies in Turkey, and founder of the “Active Tectonics Research Group of Turkey (ATAG)”. His contributions, including furthering our understanding of the behavior of the North Anatolian Fault Zone (NAFZ), using GPS studies to measure directly tectonic deformation throughout the Eastern Mediterranean Region, emphasizing the role of stress transfer and triggering along NAFZ and advancing public awareness of earthquake hazards in Turkey are exemplary. His fault zone studies were focused on understanding the temporal and spatial evolution of active faulting through geologic, geodetic, and seismic observations. Twenty years after his passing, we would like to dedicate this special issue in honor of his passion for earth science, and his long term dream of protecting the Turkish people from the losses they have suffered from earthquakes for many centuries.

Aykut recognized that a multi-disciplinary approach is vital to understanding the temporal and spatial slip behavior of faults, and he recruited scientists from around the world to incorporate new technologies and analysis approaches to Turkey’s earthquake problem. Accordingly, we invite contributions covering the full earthquake cycle using observations obtained from geologic, geodetic, and seismic observations, and from regional geodynamic studies that provide the framework for fault interactions. We seek a wide variety of studies presenting insights into several phenomena related to faulting processes within a single seismic cycle, and/or integrating contributions from multiple cycles over longer time periods.

Specifically, we invite the global earth science community to contribute to this Special Issue, focusing on, but not limited to the following potential topics:

  • Seismic, geodetic, and geological constraints on the spatial and temporal character of strain accumulation, including inter-seismic, co-seismic, and post-seismic processes, and fault creep.
  • Earthquake cycle, earthquake recurrence, strain partitioning within broad plate boundary zone fault systems
  • Paleoseismology, including observations of surface-rupturing events to constrain the short- and long-term slip history of active faults
  • Morphotectonic analysis of active faults
  • Observational and modeling approaches to imaging transient and long-term tectonic deformation
  • Observing and modeling broad scale crustal deformation by InSAR and GPS.
  • Mechanical properties of faults (i.e., creep, slow slip, supershear)
  • Factors affecting patterns of earthquake ruptures (i.e., fault segmentation)
  • Modelling dynamic and static stress transfer during the earthquake cycle
  • Probabilistic seismic hazard evaluations

Submission information:

The anticipated manuscript submission deadline is April, 1st, 2022 with the aim of getting the special issue electronically published in 2022. Manuscripts should be submitted online at https://journals.tubitak.gov.tr/earth/index.htm. Research articles, review articles and short communications are invited. All papers will go through the peer reviewing process. A guide for authors and other information for submission is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
