ISGC Envcomp 2017 : Environmental computing workshop at ISGC 2017
Call For Papers
Environmental Computing workshop
Co-located with ISGC 2017
March 6, 2017, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan
Abstract submission deadline 25th January 2017
There are several domain- or problem-specific areas – such as meteorology, hydrology, agronomy or disaster risk management and response – that use multi-model and multi-data approaches to analyse environmental phenomena and their impact. However, a more general approach to produce actionable knowledge from different environmental data sources is needed. The topic is of acute interest due to societal challenges and technical developments that require developing approaches to generalise, productise and mature current state-of-the-art environmental modelling solutions for managing disasters and disaster risks.
The workshop will bring together together practitioners, policymakers, environmental modelling experts to present the latest developments in Environmental Computing. Paper submissions by groups working on these or related fields are encouraged in order to inspire communication across different specialties.
The topics of interest include:
* Case studies
* Environmental modelling techniques (and optimisation of them)
* Multi-model systems
* Civil protection (and related engineering challenges)
* Scalability of environmental HPC and Big Data applications
* Risk assessment and management
* Interdisciplinary collaboration
* Dynamic model coupling approaches
* Interdisciplinary metadata frameworks
One page abstracts (less than 500 words) should be submitted by January 25th 2017 via:
The results of the review process will be communicated to authors by 7th February 2017.
