Climate change is a worldwide concern and climate change studies are among the priorities in Worldwide research programs. These studies are highly demanding in terms of computing power and treatment of large data sets.
e-Infrastructures offer effective solutions for large scale data challenges in several domains and represent an innovative and unique approach to athe complexity of climate change modeling and adaptation/mitigation policies.
This International Conference will address the role of e-infrastructures toward a better understanding of climate change from the global to the regional scales and is the perfect opportunity for policy makers, climate change scientists and e-Infrastructure experts to take a lead in ensuring that large e-Infrastructures are exploited fully for the purposes of climate change research.
With a host of high-level speakers the event will review the state of the art and exploring the opportunities and benefits that e-Infrastructures can offer the climate change research community.
The Conference is structured into four sessions. Two thematic sessions will be devoted to cover climate change modeling and adaptation/mitigation policies with world-wide contributions from outstanding scientists. One session will specifically address the role of main e-Infrastructures in climate change studies. One session will see the participation of a high level stakeholders to discuss policies and plan for e-Infrastructures in climate change applications in several world regions.
Benefits of Exhibiting
The Exhibition offers a prime opportunity to showcase leading technologies to advance climate research and studies to a receptive audience of users, newcomers and policy makers from across the globe. The Exhibition is open to academic sectors, EC-funded projects, companies and SMEs, which can benefit from ample opportunities to deliberate top priorities for climate change and network with an international audience.
Exhibitors will have the opportunity to:
• Network with targeted audience of over 200 academia, science and technical leaders, researchers and users from around the world.
• Showcase cutting-edge technology and success stories to an international audience in the Exhibition Area.
• Present national or international initiatives for co-operation on cloud and e-Infrastructures with special focus on their possible application on climate change study and management.
• Demonstrate business and research achievements through funded projects or independently developed solutions.
Special guest of the conference will be Dr. R. Chidambaram, Homi Bhabha Professor, and internationally renowned Nuclear Physics Scientist who is currently the Principal Scientific Adviser of the Government of India and member of the Indian Government Cabinet.
Professors and Directors of science departments from prominent institutions
will attend the Conference, too.
