ScopeDue to the development in computer science and computational science, large-scale or many times forward simulations and/or inversion analyses have become available recently. In solid Earth science, large-scale seismic wave propagation and crustal deformation with high fidelity models based on high resolution observation data have been demonstrated; uncertainty in crustal deformation caused by material properties and structures can be investigated based on many-time calculations for different material properties and structures; fault slip inversion analyses for non-Gaussian error distribution, etc. Thus, we will invite researchers who are applying HPC technology in forward simulations and inversion analyses and discuss how to improve more the collaboration between computer & computational sciences and solid Earth science not only in Japan but also from US and/or Europe. We are welcome submission by the researchers who are interested in this scope, especially students and young researchers.
