Environmental computing applications - state of the art
ECA 2016 ICCS 2016 workshop
Jun 6, 2016 - Jun 8, 2016 San Diego, California, U.S.A.

There are several domain- or problem-specific areas – such as meteorology
or seismic analysis – 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
* Visualisation

Paper submission

Papers should be submitted via the ICCS 2016 easychair (
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iccs20160 - select “Environmental
Computing Applications – State of the Art” in the first menu).

Important dates

Papers due: 15th January 2015
Notification: 27th January 2016
Camera ready: 4th March 2016
Conference dates: 6th to 8th June 2016
