The First International Workshop on Climate Informatics

Friday, August 26th, 2011
The New York Academy of Sciences
New York, NY


The threat of climate change is one of the greatest challenges
currently facing society. Given the profound impact machine learning
has made on the natural sciences to which it has been applied, such as
the field of bioinformatics, we are forging and encouraging
collaborations between machine learning (as well as data mining and
statistics) and climate science, in order to accelerate progress in
answering pressing questions in climate science. The goal of this
workshop is to incubate this new field, Climate Informatics. Recent
progress on Climate Informatics reveals that collaborations with
climate scientists also open interesting new problems for machine
learning. There are a myriad of collaborations possible at the
intersection of these two fields. We hope that every workshop
attendee leaves with a new collaboration in Climate Informatics. The
format of the workshop will emphasize communication among the various
fields, with a strong emphasis on brainstorming and break-out
sessions, as well as a panel discussion. We will also generate a
white paper on Climate Informatics, as a result of the workshop.

Confirmed Invited Speakers:
Arindam Banerjee, Computer Science and Engineering, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities
Timothy DelSole, George Mason University, and Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies
David Musicant, Computer Science, Carleton College
Douglas Nychka, Institute for Mathematics Applied to Geosciences, National Center for Atmospheric Research
