EnviroInfo 2015 call for papers
Informatics applications in the EnviroInfo conference series include the monitoring of environmental status and threats, integrated environmental assessment and reporting, the modeling of environmental changes and impacts, environmental management information systems as well as emerging issues of information processing and big data in nature, biodiversity and ecosystems.
Particular emphasis will be placed on innovative applications that support the sharing of environmental observations and combine data analysis with complex process modeling and simulation techniques. EnviroInfo 2015 also welcomes contributions describing applications supporting Environmental Policy in the EU, and the presentation of results in European research programs.
- New opportunities and old gaps in developing a fit for purpose knowledge base for environmental decision making – lessons learned from national and international state of the environment reporting;
- Examples of developing and implementing environmental information systems addressing data management and presentation within and across environmental areas and linking with other sectors;
- Highly integrated cross border and cross topic information systems and knowledge portals;
- Solutions and experiences in environmental data exchange and integration – based on reporting obligations, voluntary agreements or general data sharing agreements;
- Emerging challenges from the eGovernance discussion on open data, related to the technological developments around linked data and to new trends in science and praxis around big data;
- The evolution of participation and communication on environmental topics through citizen science, crowd sourcing and social media;
- Environmental applications of cloud based, near real time and mobile technologies;
- Environmental Management Information Systems (EMIS) and decision support systems for sustainable production, material flow management, energy and resource efficiency;
- Languages and tools for environmental modelling and simulation, including material flow management, life cycle assessment and similar approaches to energy and resource efficiency;
- Environmental applications of monitoring system, sensor-based and geospatial (GIS) technologies; and
- Environmental accounting and sustainability reporting
All submissions must follow the guidelines for submissions.
