Call for participation: CSDCO Science Planning
Workshop 2
May 18-19, 2017
Minneapolis, Minnesota

The NSF Continental Scientific Drilling Coordination Office (CSDCO) at
the University of Minnesota requests participation in the development of
a community Long Range Science Plan. If you plan to core or drill on
Earth's continents in the next 10 years, your ideas should be included
in the Science Plan. This process includes:

Scientific disciplines other than Paleorecords:
1) Apply to Attend Workshop 2, May 18-19, 2017, Minneapolis, Minnesota:
This workshop is for scientific disciplines other than Paleorecords
requiring continental drilling and coring: Critical Zone, Deep
Biosphere, Tectonics/Magmatism, Fault Zone, Impact Structures,
Hydrology, Geothermal, Geochemistry, and others.
Travel is supported through CSDCO funding from NSF.

All disciplines:
2) Fill out the community survey(3 questions) —
3) Submit an abstract for a project concept —

Paleorecords disciplines:
4) Review and provide feedback on the draft plan,
generated during and after Workshop 1 (November 2016).

The goal of this workshop is to identify and prioritize for each
discipline the compelling science drivers, drilling/coring targets,
strategic frameworks, and timelines focusing on continental localities
in the coming decade. Projects include, but are not limited to,
collaborative efforts and co-funding with international partners.
Investigators with committed funding from the International Continental
Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP), or those who will seek such support,
are particularly encouraged to participate.

The outputs from this process will form components of the CSDCO Long
Range Science Plan. This document will serve as a community roadmap and
allow the identification and development of resources required (site
surveys, drilling and/or borehole survey technology, field support
services, lab instrumentation, data infrastructure, focused workshops,
and others) to reach the goals.

Short presentation slots will be available in the agenda for
participants to provide brief overviews of the scientific rationale for
proposed drilling/coring targets and strategic frameworks. Participants
may also bring posters for display during the workshop.

Workshop 2 Meeting Dates:
Wednesday May 17: arrivals, informal gatherings
Thursday May 18: meeting (full day)
Friday May 19: meeting ends 4pm, return home early evening

Application deadline:April 14.
Rolling acceptances will be made prior to the deadline, and will be
complete by about April 21.

We will post updates on the Workshop 2 webpage
