The CIG Speakers Series seeks to promote computational modeling in geodynamics and related earth science disciplines. Speakers are drawn from a diverse pool of experts with exceptional capability to communicate the power of computation for understanding the dynamic forces that shape the surface and operate in the interior of our planet. Lectures are aimed at a broad scientific audience suitable for departmental or university colloquia series, and similar venues. Institutions with strong math and computational science departments or with diverse populations that are underrepresented in STEM are encouraged to apply.
Two speakers are selected each academic year with each scientist committing to 2-3 trips. We encourage two or more institutions in the same region to propose lectures that can be combined into a single trip. We strongly seek to engage underserved students and undergraduate-focused institutions in the U.S.

Speakers should include in their talk:
The speaker will give a talk or colloquium on a topic in computational geophysics at your institution. Speakers will be available to meet with students and faculty during their visit. Transportation costs to the host institution (i.e. airfare) will be covered by CIG. Host universities are expected to cover the cost of ground transportation, lodging, and meals. If your institution does not have a budget for external speakers, please contact us to discuss your additional support needs.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR 2021-2022
Travel for 2021-20212 will depend on restrictions in place for COVID-19. As the situation is fluid, the program will be adjusted accordingly. Thank you for your flexibility during this time.
