Registration deadline is Aug 15th.

Conference Purpose

The meeting will bring together CSDMS members to present scientific insights in the modeling of surface dynamics and environmental change; new advances in cyber-infrastructure (CSDMS Model-coupling Tool, HPC techniques); development and use of CSDMS models in education (short clinics on EKT products); and allow the CSDMS Working Groups and Focus Research Groups to strategize on the direction of CSDMS for the next 5 years (i.e., the CSDMS Strategic Plan and Renewal.)


  1. Keynote lectures and Poster Sessions on Surface Dynamics Modeling, Cross-domain Model Coupling, Geodynamics, Ecodynamics, and Morphodynamics modeling.
  2. Clinics to learn more about individual models, model coupling and EKT products.
  3. Break-out group discussions on cross-domain model coupling.
  4. Working Group and Plenary discussions to develop 5-year strategic plan.
  5. Towards practical applications and modeling for environmental changes.

Conference set up

The 4 day conference (October 14th-17th) will be set up such that it is enjoyable for your spouse as well. Only 1 joint dinner is scheduled (inform us when you register if your spouse/partner wants to attend) and enough time is scheduled for lunch breaks to enjoy a meal in one of the many nearby restaurants.
