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
