CSDMS meeting 2018

Presentations and more of the joined CSDMS - SEN 2018 annual meeting

Geoprocesses, geohazards - CSDMS 2018

May 22-24th 2018 in Boulder Colorado, USA


Thank You

On behalf of CSDMS, we thank the Keynote Speakers, Clinic Leaders, Session Chairs, Poster Session Presenters, members of the Executive and Steering Committees, and every participant who helped to make this a productive and successful meeting. Special thanks to the NSF PREEVENTS program manager Dr. Justin Lawrence for supporting this meeting.

White Paper

We are anticipating to submit the White Paper by end of July, 2018 to meet deadline of the National Academy of Sciences Committee that is just beginning the next decadal survey for the Earth Sciences. If you would like to contribute, please email CSDMS@Colorado.edu with the subject: White Paper no later then June 15th. The white paper will be published later here as well.

Special issue

We are pleased to announce that the open-access EGU journal Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences (NHESS) will work with us to publish the special issue: Advances in computational modeling of natural and geohazards. We now soliciting contributions for this NHESS special issue.
