Meeting of the Seismological Society of America

From the SSA web page. It's too late to submit an abstract, but not too late to plan on going. You could go on the San Andreas–Loma Prieta field trip! The technical program is online, including 476 abstracts, including 8 from our colleagues at Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory. And I'm not sure if it qualifies as eastern, but there are 11 abstracts for a session on the M5.4 Mt. Carmel, Illinois, Earthquake, 18 April 2008 (Illinois quake info.)
