1st Announcement for the 2014 Crustal Deformation Modeling Workshop

June 23-27, 2014, Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA


Workshop web page

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 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.

A major focus of the workshop will be modeling stress in the lithosphere
over the earthquake cycle. 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 June 23-27, 2014, in Palo Alto,
California, on the campus of Stanford University. The first two days of
the workshop will be tutorials (Day 1: intermediate, Day 2:
intermediate/advanced) followed by three days of science talks,
discussions, and informal tutorials and collaboration. We expect
beginner modelers to make use of the extensive online training
materials before the workshop. See the agenda for more information.

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.

Chair of the program committee
