28th Conference on Interactive Information Processing Systems (IIPS)
The 28th Conference on Interactive Information Processing Systems, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society, and organized by the AMS Committee on IIPS, will be held 22–26 January 2012, as part of the 92nd AMS Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The theme of the 2012 AMS Annual Meeting is “Technology in Research and Operations.” This theme will address the profound impact technology has had and will have on research, operations, the business of our environmental sciences, and the public. Technology advancements have greatly lowered the human suffering and loss of life in the United States and around the world from the deadly and costly effects of extreme weather and ecological disasters. The IIPS Conference addresses information systems technology in support of operations, research, and development for the meteorology, oceanography and hydrology disciplines - national and international - without regard to organizational, societal or political boundaries. As such, this Conference will provide an important and unique venue for the Annual Meeting theme, addressing the broad range of the use of interactive technologies by researchers, government agencies, industries, educators, policy makers, and the public.
Papers for this Conference are solicited on all aspects of IIPS with emphasis on new and emerging technologies such as GIS, communications, computer processing and display, and data management that affect the atmospheric, oceanographic, hydrologic and climatological sciences. New and re-focused sessions at the 28th IIPS Conference will provide better opportunities to share technologies, experiences, and ideas.
