EGU 2017 Workshop

EGU 2017 Environmental Computing workshop

“The EGU General Assembly 2017 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. The EGU is looking forward to cordially welcoming you in Vienna.” (EGU 2017 website)

As the previous events, EGU 2017 is expected to bring in well over 10 000 experts to a week-long event in Vienna, Austria to exchange the latest results and other innovations related to a broad range of disciplines and their applications.

Key facts:
Abstract Submission deadline: 11th  12th January 2017 13.00 CET extended due to technical issues with the website (late submission possible few days afterwards with higher abstract processing fee).
Event dates: between 23rd  to 28th April 2017 (exact date TBD)
Submission via the workshop page on EGU website (listed under ESSI – Community-driven challenges and solutions dealing with Informatics)
Convener: Jens Weismüller (LRZ)
Co-Conveners: Ari Asmi  (University of Helsinki), Niels Drost (NLeSC)

About environmental computing
Already today, many fields within in the Earth Sciences use multi-model, multi-data, and multi-scale approaches to analyse and study environmental phenomena and their impact. Yet, a more generalized 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.

This session will bring together scientists from different domains to present the latest developments in Environmental Computing. It is meant as a forum to discuss the possibilities and methods for research to make an impact on society, including topics such as:

  • Multi-domain, multi-scale, multi-model and multi-physics systems
  • Civil protection and related engineering challenges
  • Computational optimisation techniques
  • 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

Important dates:
Abstract submission: 11th January (through EGU website)
EGU meeting: 23rd to 28th April 2017
