Invitation to MCS-RCN Townhall – Thursday, May 13

Dear friends and colleagues,

You are invited to the Modeling Collaboratory for Subduction (MCS) RCN Townhall, to be held virtually Thursday, May 13, from 2:00 – 3:30 pm (CDT).

The goal of the Townhall is to engage the subduction zone and wider geodynamics community (both modelers and observationalists) to review the current state of affairs of the MCS-RCN and MCS planning and get feedback on emergent plans for a potential MCS implementation. Specifically, we want to evaluate which of the envisioned MCS’s core capabilities are of the highest priority to the community and start the discussion of a proposed organizational structure for a future Modeling Collaboratory for Subduction Zone Science.

Register for the MCS Townhall here.

The Townhall will consist of a 30-minute presentation (with draft slides already available on our MCS Townhall website), breakout discussions of the four questions listed at the end of the slides, and a summary discussion.

Anyone can provide feedback on the MCS-RCN, MCS implementation, and general comments before, during, and for a few weeks after the Townhall through our feedback form.

We hope to see you there,

The MCS-RCN Team
