Between 23 and 27 October (date to be confirmed): ECW2016, the Environmental Computing Workshop, takes place in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, at eScience 2016 (see listing 23-27 October). 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. Yet a more generalised approach to produce actionable knowledge from different environmental data sources is still needed. The topic is of acute interest owing 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.
