Announcement for the 2007 Workshop on Community Finite Element Models
for Fault Systems and Tectonic Studies
The focus of this gathering will be on computational models
addressing the seismic cycle across single and multiple events. The
workshop will blend science talks on case studies from particular
faulting environments and on key rheological behavior with
discussions of current obstacles to crustal deformation modeling and
software development priorities.
As in previous years, topics will also span a variety of
computational issues including how to go from a geologic structural
model to a finite element model, different numerical issues including
optimal meshes and remeshing, and consideration of different bulk and
fault zone rheologies. Another explicit goal of this workshop is to
provide basic training in the installation, use, and customization of
existing, freely available modeling software for crustal deformation.
There will be dedicated time at the beginning and end of the workshop
for hands-on interaction with other users and developers of the
primary existing tools. This year's workshop will be held from June
25-29, 2007, in Golden, Colorado on the campus of the Colorado School
of Mines. Limited reimbursement is available for all participants,
for a portion of costs incurred. There are no registration fees.
*Confirmed Speakers:* Jean Chery, Eun-seo Choi, Jim Dietrich, Eric
Dunham, David Kohlstedt, Walter Landry, Kengo Nakajima
