CfP: Environmental Computing Workshop (ECW) at IEEE eScience 2016 - Deadline extended (July 4 2016)‏

Call for Papers: Environmental Computing Workshop (ECW) 
Organised in conjunction with eScience 2016 conference
October 23 - 27 2016 Baltimore, Maryland, USA, 
Submission deadline 4th July (extended)

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.


The contributions can be traditional papers (maximum 10 pages), experience papers 
(short papers or annotated slide sets of maximum 15 slides) or presentations abstracts. 
Contributions should be submitted at
