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
Speakers will be available to meet with students and faculty during their visit. We encourage applications to host speakers from a wide range of disciplines and undergraduate institutions that increase the diversity of our community. The program will be adjusted for the 2021-2022 academic year according to COVID-19 restrictions in place to meet the goals of the program and its participants
