Call for Papers
The theme for the 2014 AMS Annual Meeting is “Extreme Weather—Climate and the Built Environment: New perspectives, opportunities, and tools.” The “built environment,” is increasingly connected by cyber, energy, water, transportation, health, social, and other infrastructures which interact with the natural environment through ecosystem functions. The 2014 theme is designed combine scientific inquiry, technological advances, societal implications, and public awareness through the lens of past, current, and future extreme weather and climate events.
Following this theme, the 30th Conference on Environmental Information Processing Technologies (EIPT) is soliciting papers that demonstrate successes and advances in interactive computing tools, technologies and observing systems, data management and communication related to advances in observations, modeling, new technologies and media, cyber infrastructure and applications that address issues of extreme climate and weather at varied scales.
The theme also allows for exploration of an array of topics including effective strategies for communication, social and policy theory, adaptation, mitigation, intervention, emergency response, and public behavior or perceptions. Further, the timelines of the topic and its broad accessibility to the scientific, stakeholder, and public communities should make it particularly appealing to many segments of our traditional AMS community as well as non-traditional communities. The theme is most relevant to the NOAA goal and the National Weather Service vision for “A Weather-Ready Nation – a society that is prepared for and responds to weather related events.”
Papers addressing issues related to all forms of information processing technologies in the environmental sciences, including research institutions, private sector, government, and education are also being accepted.
Please contact the program chairpersons (contact information noted below) by 1 May if you would like to propose a session topic for this conference.
