1st Announcement for the 2022 Crustal Deformation Modeling Workshop

June 20-24, 2022, Colorado School of Mines, Golden, CO


The focus of this gathering will be computational models addressing crustal deformation in the following areas:

  • Earthquake cycle modeling with an emphasis on viscoelastic and plastic deformation, evolution of fault systems, fault maturity, and fault zone structure;
  • Inverse problems, inference, and data assimilation with an emphasis on time-dependent problems;
  • Mechanical interaction of fluids, solids, and faulting; and
  • Synergistic challenges associated with crustal deformation from non-earthquake loads, such as solid and ocean tides and hydrological load, crustal dynamics beyond the Earth, cryosphere mechanics, and fracture mechanics.

The workshop will be held June 20-24, 2022, in Golden, Colorado on the campus of the Colorado School of Mines. The first two days of the workshop will be tutorials related to PyLith (an open-source, community code for modeling crustal deformation with a focus on earthquake faulting) followed by three days of science talks, discussions, and informal tutorials and collaboration.

We will provide reimbursement for a portion of the travel costs incurred for registered attendees with official appointments at U.S. institutions.

We anticipate posting a detailed agenda and opening registration in early April.
