2018 Gordon Research Conference and Seminar on Rock Deformation

Dear colleagues –

Please consider applying for the upcoming Gordon Research Conference on Rock Deformation: Integrated Approaches to Rock Deformation: Observations, Experiments, and Models, scheduled for August 19-24, 2018 at Proctor Academy, NH.  This conference will provide a unique opportunity to explore the breadth of scientific disciplines relating to rock deformation, including rock physics, geology, geophysics, seismology, mechanics, and civil engineering.

The conference will bring together a collection of junior and senior investigators who are at the forefront of their field, and will provide opportunities for junior scientists and graduate students to present their work in poster format and exchange ideas with leaders in the field. The collegial and open atmosphere of this Conference, with programmed discussion sessions as well as opportunities for informal gatherings in the afternoons, evenings and during the meals, provides a venue for scientists from different disciplines to brainstorm and promotes cross-disciplinary collaborations in the various research areas represented.

There will be an associated Gordon Research Seminar for early career investigators, before the Conference, August 18-19, 2018.   We expect there to be some funds to help support student travel and registration fees.

See the two weblinks for both events, from which you can also apply (separate applications are required for each event):

Gordon Research Conference on Rock Deformation


Gordon Research Seminar on Rock Deformation (for early career investigators)


Attendance is limited for both conferences, so early registrations are encouraged!

Hope to see you there!
