Call For Papers

Call for Papers: Environmental Computing Workshop (ECW)
Organised in conjunction with eScience 2016 conference
October 23 - 27 2016 Baltimore, Maryland, USA

This workshop will bring together practitioners, policymakers, and environmental modelling experts to present the latest developments in Environmental Computing. Submissions by groups working on related – or potentially related – fields are also encouraged in order to uncover new opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration.

The topics of interest include:
• Case studies in environmental computing related domains
• Environmental modelling and optimisation techniques
• Novel environmental computing applications
• Multi-scale, multi-model and multi-physics systems
• Civil protection and related engineering challenges
• Scalability of environmental HPC and Big Data applications
• Risk analysis, assessment, management, and mitigation
• Interdisciplinary and stakeholder collaboration
• Dynamic multi-directional model coupling approaches
• Multifaceted data and metadata frameworks
• Urgent computing and probabilistic models
• Data visualisation and interactive analysis
• Uncertainty quantification and visualization


Already today, many domain- or problem-specific areas – such as meteorology or seismic analysis –use multi-model, multi-data, and multi-scale approaches to analyse and study environmental phenomena and their impact. Yet, a more generaliSed approach to produce actionable knowledge from different environmental data sources is still needed. The topic is of acute interest due to its societal challenges and state-of-the-art technical developments, requiring generalising, productising and maturing today’s environmental modelling solutions. Application areas include managing disasters and disaster risks, supporting prompt political decision making, and many other similar domains.


The contributions can be traditional papers (maximum 10 pages), experience papers (short papers or annotated slide sets of maximum 15 slides) or presentations abstracts. Contributions should be submitted at
