Mineral Physics Planning Workshop
Purpose and goals
The purpose of the Chicago workshop is to identify the most important challenges and opportunities in our discipline, review the main science drivers, and formulate a strategic roadmap for the next decade. Particular emphasis will be placed on the possible role emerging new technologies (e.g. experimental, cyberinfrastructure, etc.) in furthering our understanding of planetary interiors and high-pressure phenomena.
Similar to the two previous long range planning workshops the goal of the Chicago workshop is to produce a written Mineral Physics Long Range Vision Report, following the examples of the 2003 Bass Report and 2009 Williams Report, which will then be distributed throughout the community and to the funding agencies.
