Dear Colleague,

We would like to invite your participation in a workshop on the  
“Opportunities and Challenges in Computational Geophysics” March  
30-31, 2009, on the Caltech Campus in Pasadena, CA

At the workshop we will address scientific activities involving state- 
of-the art software such as that being supported by CIG,  innovations  
and opportunities in computational geophysics, and  ways to support  
and grow computational geoscience through community education  
programs.  An important objective is to obtain community input on the  
future of the CIG initiative.  The overall format will combine invited  
talks, discussion sessions and posters.  Participants in all areas of  
our science are expected, including experts in computational science  
and in geophysics. Young investigators are encouraged to participate.  
Financial support is available for participants.

A preliminary agenda is now available at

Please register now using this Registration Form:

Accommodations are available at the Courtyard Marriott, 180 North Fair  
Oaks Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91103, phone: 800-321-2211.
