This workshop will focus on the nexus of computational geophysics.  Plenary sessions will focus on the interdisciplinary nature of the research questions driving our science. Through panel discussions and forums, the community is invited to engage in discussion on topics that both connect and are common to the domains.  Researchers are also invited to present current work through lightning talks and poster sessions.
