*Apply now to attend the GeoPRISMS Synthesis & Integration Theoretical
and Experimental Institute!*
February 27- March 1, 2019
Hotel Menger, San Antonio, Texas

*Apply before November 12*:

The 2019 GeoPRISMS Theoretical and Experimental Institute (TEI) will
represent an opportunity for our community to synthesize results across
the two program initiatives: Rift Initiation and Evolution (RIE); and
Subduction Cycles & Deformation (SCD). During this meeting we will
evaluate accomplishments to date, and define key gaps, opportunities for
synthesis and collaboration, and outstanding questions leading in to the
final years of the decadal program. We will also identify emerging
opportunities and problems, and develop new research directions
motivated by the successes of the MARGINS and GeoPRISMS programs. The
three-day meeting will be preceded by an Early-Career Investigator
symposium on Tuesday February 26.

Key objectives of the workshop include:

* Set the stage for legacy of GeoPRISMS, develop concrete ideas for
legacy products or activities in the coming 2-3 years. This should
include both Science and Education and Outreach.
* Identify outstanding process-based questions and cross-cutting
themes that engage both the RIE and SCD communities. These
fundamental science questions will guide the integration of science
results from GeoPRISMS, and likely lead to future proposals and
funding opportunities.
* The Early Career Investigator (ECI) symposium will foster
cross-disciplinary collaborations among young scientists. This
symposium will be led by two young scientists in our community.
* Position our science community for future years by evaluating the
role of large research infrastructure, how science goals of the
GeoPRISMS Program can be met by future large-scale initiatives, and
the importance of continued NSF support for cross-disciplinary and
cross-shoreline research.


The TEI is funded by the National Science Foundation through the
GeoPRISMS Office at The Pennsylvania State University. There is no
registration fee. We will be able to cover most on-site expenses (venue
costs, hotel expenses based on multiple occupancy, and most meals) for
approximately 175 participants. Partial funding for travel may also be
available, with preference given to students and postdocs. Confirmed
participants whose on-site expenses are covered are expected to arrive
on Tuesday evening and leave on Saturday morning.

*Student and Postdoc symposium*

On Tuesday before the TEI we will hold a student and postdoc symposium
which will feature short presentations by attendees and discussion with
the conveners and NSF program managers. The symposium runs from
12:30-5:00pm and will be followed at 5:00 – 7:00pm by a reception and
ice breaker open to all TEI attendees. We encourage all students and
postdocs to attend and to arrange their travel accordingly, after
confirmation of attendance.
