11th Conference on Artificial and Computational Intelligence and its Applications to the Environmental Sciences

Conferences and Symposia Conference Program
View by day or program, includes author index and personal scheduler


Our annual conference brings together AI researchers and environmental scientists, with the goal of increasing the synergy between the two. We aim to increase the understanding and use of AI techniques in the environmental sciences and to demonstrate the wide range of open problems in the environmental sciences.  AI encompasses a broad field of computational intelligence disciplines including data mining, machine learning, statistical learning, self-organizing systems, evolutionary learning and expert systems.

            This year’s AMS annual theme is “Taking Predictions to the Next Level: Expanding Beyond Today's Weather, Water, and Climate Forecasting and Projections.”  This theme is very much in line with the use of artificial intelligence techniques for a variety of weather applications.  We have joint sessions with the following conferences on this theme:

                * 25th Conference on Climate Variability and Change

                                *  Application of AI to the Climate System

                * 16th Conference on Aviation, Range, and Aerospace Meteorology

                                * The application of Artificial Intelligence in the field of Aviation, Range, and Aerospace Meteorology

                * Fourth Conference on Environment and Health

                                * Using Data Mining to Improve Our Understanding of the Connections between Health, the Environment, and


                * Decision support: First Annual Symposium on the Weather and Climate Enterprise

                                *  Completing the Forecast: Decision Making under Uncertainty

                * 29th Conf on EIPT (formerly IIPS): Environmental Information Processing Technology

                                * Applying Machine Learning Techniques for Information Processing

                * Fourth Conference on Weather, Climate, and the New Energy Economy

                                * Medium-range, Sub-seasonal and Seasonal-scale Forecast Techniques and Modeling for Energy Demand

                * Probability and Statistics

                                * Methods for creating and verifying probabilistic forecasts

        In addition to the joint sessions, the AI conference will hold general sessions for papers on the following topics:

                • Applications of data mining/knowledge discovery and improved understanding of large environmental science datasets

                • Applications of AI in numerical weather prediction

                • Applications of AI in weather product evaluation (e.g., via expert system models of decision processes or agent-based

models of impacts)

                • Applications of AI to decision support system development

                • Applications of AI to environmental science problems

                • Applications of AI to probabilistic predictions, uncertainty estimates or risk analysis

                • Exposition of new or existing AI methods relevant to the environmental sciences This year, the conference will offer some student travel funds to the students who submit the best papers into the conference.
