I am pleased to announce that CIG-III will be supported by the NSF’s Geoinformatics program, with support from Advanced Cyberinfrastructure.
Over the last decade our geodynamics community has grown and developed, pushed the scientific and computational frontiers of geophysics, and become a model for other scientific communities. We’ve seen new models of geologic processes and Earth’s systems from the core to the surface, and established and sustained partnerships between computational scientists and geophysicists. We’ve established best practices for scientific software development, enabled effective use of some of the world’s fastest computers, and supported the next generation of computational geophysicists to carry out their research vision. Our community has collaborated with other organizations, agencies, and international partners on workshops, tutorials, and software development. It’s a great time for computational geophysics, and I look forward to what the next 5 years holds.
The upcoming CIG ’16 meeting will be a kickoff event for the next 5 years of CIG. I look forward to seeing many of you in Davis in June!
