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
* Visualisation

Paper submission

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.
