2020 CIG Community Workshop

Advancing Our Understanding of Earth Dynamics in CIG IV

13-15 October 2020

times tbd



The workshop brings together the geophysics community to address the science that drives computational geophysics and the development of state-of-the-art software.  Outcomes from this workshop will inform the development of the CIG IV proposal in 2021. Building the capacity for leadership level computation and promoting the use of cutting-edge algorithms throughout the CIG community demands a broad vision that includes community education, resource development, and increasing and supporting computational expertise to make computing more approachable and accessible. The workshop intends to provide a forum to discuss opportunities and initiatives to meet community needs in supporting the practice of leading-edge, open science.

As CIG looks towards the future, we invite community input on CIG initiatives through participation in discussions and contributions of science, technology, infrastructure, and outreach posters. Participants from a wide range of disciplines in the computational and geosciences are encouraged to attend. We especially seek feedback from early-career scientists in creating the vision for the next phase of CIG to meet the future challenges in geodynamics.
