Post-AGU 2011 CIDER Workshop

The CIDER-II Synthesis Center proposal to the NSF/FESD program has been funded for 5 years. We will be continuing the summer programs, which will now be held every year, alternating "deep" and "shallow" earth topics, we will be launching new activities, among which support for multi-disciplinary working groups on targeted topics, the development of an "E-book", and more sustained support for student research groups formed during the summer programs.

This one day workshop will serve as a kick-off for the expanded CIDER-II: a retrospective on past CIDER programs/activities, a prospective for the 2012 Summer Program, and more generally, brainstorming about future CIDER programs and activities.

The morning will be organized around 4 keynote lectures on topics related to the theme of the 2012 Summer program:
"Deep Time: How did Early Earth become our Modern World"
Speakers: David Stevenson, Mark Harrison, Marc Hirschmann, Ed Garnero

The afternoon will feature short research presentations by several former CIDER students/post-docs, as well as reports from research groups formed during the 2010 and 2011 Summer Programs.
Presenters: John Crowley (Harvard);Colleen Dalton (Boston U.);Allison Gale (Harvard);Melanie Gerault (USC); Matt Jackson (Boston U.); Ved Lekic (Brown U.); Rajdeep Dasgupta(Rice);Elizabeth Day (Cambridge);
Ample time will be reserved for discussion and input from participants about themes, subtopics, .possible projects for the upcoming summer program(s), and working group ideas (e.g. geoneutrinos by Stephen Day, U. Hawaii)..

The workshop is open to all - we encourage attendance by both former CIDER junior and senior participants, and hope to draw into the CIDER process members of the community that haven't had prior opportunity to participate in any CIDER activities.
Please register by November 15th, 2011. For planning purposes, we need to have a head count.

Workshop Organizers: Barbara Romanowicz, Marc Hirschmann, Bruce Buffett, Michael Manga, Sujoy Mukhopadhyay
