>>  The Spectrum of Fault Slip Behaviors - Travel Logistics and  
>> Preliminary Agenda
>>
>> A preliminary agenda and information on travel logistics are now  
>> available for the EarthScope Institute on the Spectrum of Fault  
>> Slip Behaviors.   Please go to:
>>
>> http://www.earthscope.org/workshops/fault_slip10
>>
>> Registration and application for travel support:  The deadline to  
>> register and to apply for travel/lodging support is July 15.   
>> Support to cover lodging and meals during the workshop is available  
>> for ~100 participants assuming double occupancy. Single rooms are  
>> also available.  See “Travel Logistics” on the web site for more  
>> information. A confirmation email with additional questions concer 
>> ning logistics will be sent within a week of receipt of your regis 
>> tration.  If you registered prior to June 24, please look for this 
>>  email by July 1.  Contact earthscope at coas.oregonstate.edu if you  
>> have any questions.
>>
>> Posters and contributed talks:  Considerable time is allocated  
>> during the meeting for poster sessions.  Each session will also  
>> include several contributed, as well as invited, talks.  Abstracts  
>> are due August 15. Talks and poster abstracts will be posted on the  
>> web after the meeting. See “Preliminary Agenda” for more  
>> information.
>>
>> Original Workshop Announcement:
>>
>> The Spectrum of Fault Slip Behaviors
>>
>> October 11-14, Portland, OR
>>
>>  This is the first in an anticipated series of workshops to spawn  
>> virtual EarthScope Institutes that are intended to engage the  
>> scientific community on broad, emerging problems with  
>> transformative potential. To propose additional topics for  
>> workshops to initiate virtual EarthScope Institutes, please contact  
>> a member of the EarthScope Steering Committee.
>>
>> The principle goal of this EarthScope Institute will be to improve  
>> understanding of the mechanisms responsible for the spectrum of  
>> observed fault slip behaviors. The purpose of the workshop is to  
>> seed collaborations between observational efforts, numerical and  
>> theoretical approaches, and laboratory based research programs  
>> focused on Transient Fault Slip (TFS). Presentations from the  
>> workshop will be posted on the web as background for what is  
>> planned to be an ongoing exploration of the spectrum of fault slip  
>> behaviors. The Institute is intended to: 1) foster critical  
>> thinking about the underlying mechanisms and physical processes  
>> responsible for TFS and 2) promote broad, community-based interest  
>> in understanding TFS. the spectrum of fault slip behaviors. The  
>> Institute is intended to foster continuing critical thinking about  
>> the underlying mechanisms and physical processes responsible for  
>> TFS and promote broad, community-based interest in understanding TFS.
