CallForAbstract-Climate Informatics 2012

09/20/2012 - 8:00am to 09/21/2012 - 4:00pm


Abstracts submissions are now closed.

This year we are very pleased to be offering TRAVEL FELLOWSHIPS. Anyone who submits a poster abstract is eligible; fellowships will be awarded competitively upon review of the submitted abstracts. Please indicate with your submission whether you wish to be considered for a travel fellowship.

We encourage submissions on topics anywhere at the interface of climate science and machine learning, data mining, statistics, or related fields.  Position papers, and works in progress, are also encouraged. The workshop does not have archival proceedings, therefore previously published work, or work in parallel submission, is also allowed.  Topics include, but are not limited to:

•Machine learning, data mining, or statistics applied to climate science

•Management and processing of large climate datasets

•Long and short-term climate prediction

•Ensemble characterization of climate model projections

•Past (paleo) climate reconstruction

•Uncertainty quantification

•Spatio-temporal methods applied to climate data

•Time series methods applied to climate data

•Methods for modeling, detecting and predicting climate extremes

•Climate change attribution

•Dependence and causality among climate variables

•Detection and characterization of climate teleconnections

•Data assimilation

•Climate model parameterizations

•Hybrid methods
