Online: Special Training for SeisComP - Network Performance 12 - 21 April, 2021

Dear SeisComP users and everyone interested,

For the first time we are conducting our very newly designed Special Training for SeisComP at our offices in Potsdam, Germany, in April 2021. The training will have a very strong focus on evaluating and optimizing the performance of seismic monitoring networks for local, regional and teleseismic earthquakes using dedicated gempa modules .

This Special Training is perfect for network administrators but also for experienced SeisComP users who wish to achieve and maintain highest performance of seismic monitoring networks based on SeisComP.

The training topics are tailored to network performance analysis and optimization:

  • Introduction to tuning options of the standard SeisComP package with optional release upgrade
  • Pipeline processing for separating monitoring targets
  • Offline and real-time playbacks
  • Data quality control:
    • scqc / scqcv for computing and visualizing waveform QC parameters
  • scqceval for automatic re-configuration of seismic networks based on evaluating waveform quality control (QC) parameters in real time:
    • real-time evaluation of waveform QC parameter
    • real-time and automatic reconfiguration of seismic network based on QC parameters
  • npeval for evaluating network performance parameters in real-time and for planning network designs:
    • real-time network performance analysis
    • network design planning
    • application for specific pipelines
    • dynamic map updates and map configurations
  • sceval for automatic evaluation of seismic event solutions considering waveform quality control (QC) parameters in real time:
    • real-time evaluation of event solutions
    • application for specific pipelines
    • evaluation in playbacks
    • automatic tuning based on machine learning methods
  • Participants may bring their own datasets and use it for tuning.

During the training we will spend much time individually with you for tuning. Ideally you will leave the training with a SeisComP system that is well-tuned for your applications. Please contact us for your specific suggestions.

Included in the course fee are licenses:

valid for 3 years. Find all details online:

Dates and times

  1. – 21. April 2021, 08:30 - 12:30 CEST (times will adjusted allowing participation from different time zones)

ONLINE Training - Adaptation to the Covid-19 situation:

As traveling may be restricted during the course period and your health is of highest priority to us, this training will be held as an online training with a virtual classroom. Following tutorials on a monitor for a long time is very demanding. We therefore reduce the daily amount of hours to 4 including short breaks.

Registration, fees, conditions, etc.

The course is now open for registration. Find all details online: or contact us by email:

Cannot attend this time? More SeisComP courses are announced online: .

See you online and all around the world!

Hi community,

there is still a chance to register and to reserve spots for this newly designed special training. As we hope to switch back to face-to-face training later this year, this online training may be a unique opportunity for those who wish to avoid traveling.

See you soon,
