International Workshop on the Frontiers of Computational Geodynamics 2015, Beijing, China

  • 创建于 2015-06-02
Dear Colleagues,

You may have noticed that the annually International Workshop on the Frontiers of Computational Geodynamics (IWFCG) is fast approaching. The workshop of this year will be held in Beijing, the People’s Republic of China, from July 8-9, 2015. On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to attend this scientific and social event. And we do believe with your participation the IWFCG’2015 would be more successful.

Sponsored and hosted by the Key Laboratory of Computational Geodynamics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (LCG-CAS), the IWFCG annual workshop series has been successively held since 2004, attracting leading scientists from China, North America, Europe, Australia, and other Asian countries. In 2014, the LCG-CAS hosted the eleventh IWFCG of 275 participants.

The theme of this year’s workshop is new advances in computational geodynamic studies. In the past decades, high-performance computing has found broad applications in many fields of earth sciences, from large-scale mantle dynamics to molecular-scale mineral physics. It has also become a critical integrator for the massive data that grows exponentially in recent years. This joint workshop aims to foster interdisciplinary studies. We welcome all studies of applications of computational methods in geosciences; we particularly encourage studies that integrate observational data with modern computational methods to advance our understanding of the structure and process of multi-spatiotemporal scale deformation in the crust and mantle. Topics on other aspects of geodynamic computation are also welcome.

For further information, please email Miss Yue Chang (changyue@ucas.ac.cn). To participate, please email the title and abstract of your talk/poster by 15 June, 2015 to changyue@ucas.ac.cn or dengchunlin@ucas.ac.cn. 

We look forward to your attendance at the IWFCG’2015.

Sincerely Yours,


IWFCG Organizing Committee
