The Keck Program for Interdisciplinary Studies in Material Physics and Seismology is nearing the end of its third year, and we are planning a symposium aimed at identifying new opportunities for collaboration and progress in the areas listed below. The meeting will be held July 18-19, 2002 at UCSB in the Kohn Hall (KITP) large seminar room. The general announcement is followed by a specific list of speakers and talks below.
The Keck Program for Interdisciplinary Studies in Materials Physics and Seismology
at UCSB will host a two day symposium aimed at developing a better understanding
of the Physics and Materials Science underlying:
Friction, Fracture, and Earthquake Physics
The symposium will bring together a group of physicists, engineers, materials scientists, and seismologists for a two day series of lectures and informal discussions aimed at identifying new opportunities to develop connections between theoretical, numerical, and experimental advances in our fundamental understanding of friction, fracture, and deformation, and seismological applications of these results.

Attendees must obtain a parking permit from the parking kiosk at the eastern entrance to campus (off of Hwy 217 "Ward Memorial Drive"). Please make sure you arrive no later than 8:15AM to allow ample time to obtain a parking permit
For those staying at the Upham Hotel, a UCSB, 15 passenger van will be leaving each morning from the Upham to UCSB at 8:00AM and will return to the hotel after the workshop each night.
You may also get further directions to the KITP building at the parking kiosk.
