Call for Particicipation:
Environmental Computing Workshop (ECW)
Organised in conjunction with eScience 2016 conference
October 23 2016 Baltimore, Maryland, USA
Early bird registration deadline 23rd September 2016



Keynote by Prof. Wolfram Mauser:
“Remote Sensing and Modeling – Key elements of Environmental Computing”
11 talks by environmental computing experts
Panel discussion
Co-located with IEEE eScience 2016 conference

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.
However, there is still a need for a more generalised approach to producing
actionable knowledge from different environmental data sources. 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.
