The outcome of the workshop will include a set of "experiments" performed by
each modeling group under the same simulated condition (standard protocol). It
will also produce a set of observational and experimentally-derived parametric
constraints to be applied by all modeling groups. These immediate products are
useful only to the modeling community, but the main product of the workshop will
be the results of the model runs themselves. These are to be completed within
six months of the workshop, and the results will be posted on the web
for examination and scrutiny by the modeling community as well as the public at
large. This will set the stage for a second workshop at which the modelers will
reconvene and directly compare their results, assess the differences and
reconcile any discrepancies that bear on our understanding of the operation of
magmatic systems prior to and during eruption.
