Climate change is a worldwide concern and climate change studies are among the priorities in world-wide research programs. The increasing ability to understand complex, system-oriented phenomena such as climate change is strictly correlated with the need for increasing data and computing resources. The e-Infrastructures represent an innovative and unique approach to address this problem. It is an efficient way to share and access resources of different types which can effectively enhance the potential of scientific research and productivity.

This international conference will address the role of e-infrastructures towards a better understanding of climate change; from global to regional scales. The main goal of this event is to expose the participating scientists and stakeholders to modern e-infrastructures (which includes an HPC and grid environments) so that the potential provided by this infrastructure for climate change research can be assessed.

It will also provide the opportunity to enhance knowledge previously acquired and to grow the core innovations emerging in this framework; for example the development of an European and worldwide e-infrastructure for climate change applications driven by European Union projects such as Prace, EGI, EU-IndiaGRID2, EUMEDGRID-Support and others.
