Call for Abstracts IA & Climate sciences - Montreal July 9-13, 2019


Hello Julia community!

I’m the lead convener of a Symposium in IA and Climate Sciences. Find a quick description below and a flyer to distribute for anyone interested. Hopefully, this is the right thread for posting such announcement.

Philippe Roy / Balinus

edit - It’s in Montreal, during summer. Best place to be! If you come a little bit early, you can catch the Jazz Festival (June 27th - July 6th):

JM07 - Artificial Intelligence and Big data in Weather and Climate Science (IAMAS, IAHS)
Deadline: March 1st 2019

Rapid advances in artificial intelligence, combined with the availability of enormous amount of data (termed Big Data) is opening new avenues for climate analysis and climate scenarios. The long-awaited promises of AI are now common in many disciplines. Applying AI methods, combined with physical knowledge, can improve climate analysis and provide better climate simulations and climate products, notably for high-impact events, such as floods, wildfires and winds.

Contributions are welcome in the following areas, but not limited to:

  • Decision-making tools for climate and weather-related hazards
  • Data mining and explorations approaches
  • Pattern recognition and classification
  • Climate and weather emulators
  • Smart-grid and smart cities applications combining AI and weather and climate data
  • Novel approaches in the domain of natural hazards using AI methods
