Submission Deadline: January 1, 2010
www.nsf-margins.org/SuccessorProgram

The MARGINS Successor Planning Workshop will be held in San Antonio, TX on
February 15-18, 2010 and convened by:
J. Morgan, R. Arrowsmith, M. Behn, S. Bilek, C. Ebinger,  M. Hirschmann, D.
Saffer, D. Wiens, A. Goodliffe, T. Gardner

All members of the scientific community interested in future science on 
plate margins are invited to submit one or more White Paper(s) to the 
MARGINS Office in advance of the MARGINS Successor Planning Workshop.

The planning process is open, and these White Papers provide a means for 
all members of the broader scientific community to contribute cogent and 
well-argued ideas for future directions of the program. White papers 
will be used in developing the workshop program, and will be publicly 
available. White Papers should be clear and succinct, and limited in 
length to 2 pages of text plus 1 page of figures and references. The 
paper may address any topic of relevance to the workshop. We
particularly seek white papers that outline broad, high-priority, and 
novel science questions and objectives for future research relating to 
the formation, evolution, and/or processes active along subduction or 
rifting margins.

Recommendations for technological developments, instruments, facilities, 
and observatories necessary to address these questions are also welcome, 
as well as papers advancing educational and outreach objectives and
topics of broader societal relevance. White papers should be of general 
interest, rather than advocacy statements for specific studies, 
locations, or focus sites. Additional guidelines for submitting White 
Papers can be found here:
www.nsf-margins.org/SuccessorProgram/whitepapers.html

Submission Deadline: January 1, 2010.
