1st Announcement for the 2013 Crustal Deformation Modeling Tutorial

Online virtual workshop to be held June 24-28, 2013


Workshop web page

This virtual workshop will focus on providing training in the use of
the CIG PyLith software for modeling crustal deformation, particularly
interseismic, coseismic, and postseismic deformation. The training
will also include instruction in CUBIT for creating finite-element
meshes as input for PyLith and visualizing PyLith output using

The workshop will be held Monday June 24, Wednesday June 26, and
Friday June 28, 2013, using AdobeConnect web-based tools. Monday will
be dedicated to intermediate tutorials with the content progressing to
advanced level topics on Wednesday and Friday. Each of the three days
will be divided into 2 hour sessions with morning (Pacific Time) and
afternoon (Pacific Time) sessions. An alternative schedule (Schedule
B) will have the same sessions at a time more convenient for
participants in eastern Asia, New Zealand, and Australia (see the
Agenda for details). There are no registration fees.

Training for beginning users is available via the extensive PyLith
(http://www.geodynamics.org/cig/software/pylith/user_resources), which
includes archived material from the 2011 virtual workshop.

We plan to continue holding in-person crustal deformation modeling
workshop on a biannual basis (even years) with the next workshop
tentatively scheduled for June 2014, at the Colorado School of Mines
in Golden, CO.
