Announcement for the 2009 Workshop on Numerical Modeling of Crustal
Deformation and Earthquake Faulting

June 22-26, 2009, Colorado School of Mines, Golden, CO


The focus of this gathering will be computational models addressing  
crustal deformation over the the seismic cycle across single and  
multiple events. Other related topics, such as the mechanical  
properties of the lithosphere and crustal deformation from volcanic  
sources will also be discussed. 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.

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, various numerical issues such as choosing  
discretization schemes and meshing strategies, 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 throughout 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 22-26, 2009, in Golden,  
Colorado on the campus of the Colorado School of Mines. The first four  
days (Monday-Thursday) will be a mixture of science talks, discussion,  
and hands-on tutorials. The fifth day (Friday) is dedicated to  
informal tutorials and collaboration. We expect to be able to provide  
reimbursement for a portion of the costs incurred for registered  
attendees with official appointments at U.S. institutions. There are  
no registration fees.


We have arranged for lodging on the Colorado School of Mines campus in  
the Weaver Towers, and the location of the meeting will be in the  
Student Center, as before. Attendees from U.S. institutions that wish  
to stay in a hotel and attendees from foreign institutions must make  
their own reservations and pay for their own lodging. For full details  
about dorm and hotel accommodations, travel reimbursement, airport  
shuttle and local maps, see the announcement:
