http://www.iris.edu/hq/iris_workshop/

Please register and make your hotel reservations before Friday, May 7, 
2010.  Additional workshop information is included in the above link.

The IRIS Workshop will celebrate the 25th anniversary of IRIS - and look 
ahead to an exciting future for the Earth sciences. With the recent 
publication of "Seismological Grand Challenges in Understanding Earth's 
Dynamic Systems", the IRIS Consortium of over 110 U.S. universities has 
a very special opportunity: to use these Grand Challenges to shape plans 
for continuing evolution of the facilities that support geophysical 
research. 

The Workshop will include plenary presentations on cutting-edge 
investigations related to many of the Grand Challenges, organized into 
sessions on Exploration & Near-Surface Seismology, the Science of Fault 
Slip and Earthquake Rupture, Mantle Dynamics, and the Science and Policy 
of Deadly Earthquakes.

Between and after the plenary sessions, the workshop will include poster 
sessions and special interest group meetings. Each of these venues 
provides opportunities to delve into greater detail and to discuss the 
next steps forward and the resources required to support successful 
projects.

As always, the IRIS Workshop will include settings for informal 
discussion, including group dinners with stimulating lectures, the 
recreational facilities of the Snowbird Resort, and field trips on the 
geology of the nearby Wasatch Fault and infrastructure that mitigates 
societal risk.

Science Program Chairs:
   * Mike Brudzinski - Miami University of Ohio
   * Ed Garnero - Arizona State University
   * Stephane Rondenay - Massachusetts Institute of Technology
