SZNet Virtual Workshop

SZNet Virtual Workshop | Rheology and Stress

May 20-24, 2024

Keynotes and breakout session times are detailed below


Workshop Objectives

How does the rheology of subduction zone materials influence the partitioning of stress and strain, and how does this control the nature of hazards across the subduction zone system?

SZNet's virtual workshops serve as major vehicles for the development of a large, interdisciplinary science community. These workshops offer opportunities to discuss important questions at the forefront of the scientific community while offering a convenient forum for international scientists to collaborate.

The virtual workshops are scheduled over the course of a week to accommodate busy schedules and diverse time zones. Translated close captions will be available for all events.

May 20-22, 2024: Keynote Talks. Two talks will be scheduled each day (45 minute talk, 15 minute Q&A). Talks will be recorded and posted on the SZ4D Youtube Channel for asynchronous viewing.

May 23, 2024: Breakout Discussions Sessions. Breakout sessions will scheduled at a variety of timezones to allow attendees to choose the breakout session that most meets their needs (about 1.5 hours).

May 24, 2024: Meeting-wide Discussion. One large final meeting for all attendees to meet and recap what was discussed in the breakout sessions. The final meeting will be recorded and posted on the SZ4D Youtube Channel for asynchronous viewing.
