Dear Colleagues,

We would like to announce a Community Meeting to discuss the ongoing
planning efforts associated with the Subduction Zones in Four Dimensions
(SZ4D) initiative This meeting will provide the
opportunity to discuss recent subduction zone science, update the community
on the status of SZ4D, and solicit community feedback on next steps. In
particular, we are seeking input on near-future opportunities to seek
funding for SZ4D infrastructural needs. The meeting will be held in
Houston, Texas November 14-16, 2022. In addition, there will be an
early-career event immediately preceding the meeting on November 13.

We realize that travel to certain parts of the country raises
concerns for some members of our community. Acknowledging these concerns,
the location for the Community Meeting was chosen to balance a number of
competing priorities, including travel accessibility for both US and
Chilean scientists and the availability of an affordable venue large enough
to host the community meeting this fall. We plan to engage members of the
community who cannot travel to Houston by providing opportunities for
virtual participation throughout the meeting.

Additional details, including registration information, will follow
shortly. The anticipated registration deadline to be considered for travel
support is October 1st.

We look forward to seeing you in November!
