2016 CIG ‘16 Interdiscplinary Directions in Computational Geophysics

CIG '16 Posters

Posters will be available throughout the Plenary Session and should be displayed by noon on Monday in Ballroom A of the UC Davis Convernce Center.

Lightning talks by subject matter will be held on Monday and Tuesday prior to the afternoon poster sessions.  

Register your poster and sign-up for lightning talks

Poster size is 4'H x 8'W landscape (usable space)

Lighting Talks Schedule
Monday: computational science, mantle convection, long-term tectonics
Tuesday: geodynamo, short term crustal dynamics, seismology


After the meeting, we will gladly re-purpose your poster into dino hats.
