*Apply now to attend the GeoPRISMS Synthesis & Integration Theoretical 
and Experimental Institute!*
February 27- March 1, 2019
Hotel Menger, San Antonio, Texas
*Meeting website*: http://geoprisms.org/tei-2019/ 
*Apply before November 12*: 

The 2019 GeoPRISMS Theoretical and Experimental Institute (TEI) will 
represent an opportunity for our community to synthesize results across 
the two program initiatives: Rift Initiation and Evolution (RIE); and 
Subduction Cycles & Deformation (SCD). During this meeting we will 
evaluate accomplishments to date, and define key gaps, opportunities for 
synthesis and collaboration, and outstanding questions leading in to the 
final years of the decadal program. We will also identify emerging 
opportunities and problems, and develop new research directions 
motivated by the successes of the MARGINS and GeoPRISMS programs. The 
three-day meeting will be preceded by an Early-Career Investigator 
symposium on Tuesday February 26.

Key objectives of the workshop include:

  * Set the stage for legacy of GeoPRISMS, develop concrete ideas for
    legacy products or activities in the coming 2-3 years. This should
    include both Science and Education and Outreach.
  * Identify outstanding process-based questions and cross-cutting
    themes that engage both the RIE and SCD communities. These
    fundamental science questions will guide the integration of science
    results from GeoPRISMS, and likely lead to future proposals and
    funding opportunities.
  * The Early Career Investigator (ECI) symposium will foster
    cross-disciplinary collaborations among young scientists. This
    symposium will be led by two young scientists in our community.
  * Position our science community for future years by evaluating the
    role of large research infrastructure, how science goals of the
    GeoPRISMS Program can be met by future large-scale initiatives, and
    the importance of continued NSF support for cross-disciplinary and
    cross-shoreline research.


The TEI is funded by the National Science Foundation through the 
GeoPRISMS Office at The Pennsylvania State University. There is no 
registration fee. We will be able to cover most on-site expenses (venue 
costs, hotel expenses based on multiple occupancy, and most meals) for 
approximately 175 participants. Partial funding for travel may also be 
available, with preference given to students and postdocs. Confirmed 
participants whose on-site expenses are covered are expected to arrive 
on Tuesday evening and leave on Saturday morning.

*Student and Postdoc symposium*

On Tuesday before the TEI we will hold a student and postdoc symposium 
which will feature short presentations by attendees and discussion with 
the conveners and NSF program managers. The symposium runs from 
12:30-5:00pm and will be followed at 5:00 – 7:00pm by a reception and 
ice breaker open to all TEI attendees. We encourage all students and 
postdocs to attend and to arrange their travel accordingly, after 
confirmation of attendance.
