ACES aims to develop realistic super-computer simulation models for the physics and dynamics of the complete earthquake generation process,and to assimilate new earthquake observations into such models. During the inaugural ACES Workshop held in 1999 in Brisbane and Noosa, Australia, five working groups were formed and initial WG goals were identified. At a subsequent Working Group Meeting held in Tokyo in January, 2000, two new WG's were established and WG leaders were nominated to animate WG interactions and organize WG sessions at major workshops.
The 2nd workshop to be held in October 2000aims to allow:
- progress to be presented since the inaugural workshop including cooperative activities and complementary research towards the initial WG goals,
- discussions of the present state of the art in earthquake physics and computational science, and
- workshop-style interactions aimed at allowing interactive work to be achieved, fostering exchange of ideas between ACES participants and identifying new WG goals and/or activities.
By popular request after the inaugural workshop,the 2nd workshop will have no parallel sessions and will have more time for workshop style activities and discussions. Sessions are being organized by convenors.

| WG1: Microscopic simulation
WG2: Scaling physics
WG3: Macroscale simulation / Earthquake generation and cycles
WG4: Macroscale simulation / Dynamic rupture and wave propagation
WG5: Computational environment and algorithms
WG6: Data assimilation and understanding
WG7: Model applications to space-time earthquake hazard quantification
|The major theme of the 2nd workshop is "Microscopic and macroscopic
simulation of fault zone processes and evolution, earthquake generation
and cycles, and fault system dynamics".
The theme will be addressed in a series of sessions (below). An additional special session will be held on collaborative software systems and models.
