The first call for GeoMLA workshop and conference, 21-24 June 2016, Belgrade

In the period 21-24 June 2016, we are organizing an International conference and a series of workshops entitled: "GeoMLA: Geostatistics and Machine Learning Applications in Climate and Environmental Sciences".

Location: University of Belgrade - Faculty of Civil Engineering Belgrade, Serbia

URL: http://geomla.org

This conference builds up on the previous DailyMeteo meeting (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/22116753/14/part/PA) that has focused on Spatio-temporal modeling of meteo data. Likewise, the GeoMLA conference and workshops in Belgrade 2016 aim at bringing together leading researchers in the field of Climate/Environmental modeling, detection and analysis, and especially those focusing on bridging gaps between Geostatistics and Machine Learning methods/techniques for use in Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences. The meeting will open with three parallel workshops (21-22 June 2016) run as software tutorials:

  • Mikhail Kanevski: "Machine learning of geospatial data: achievements and new trends"
  • Tomislav Hengl: "Automated mapping in 2D, 3D, and 2D+T using machine learning"
  • Milan Kilibarda: "Spatial and spatio-temporal prediction and visualisation of climate elements in R"

These workshops will be accompanied by the demonstrations and practicals (hands-on-software training) using topo-climatic, pollution and natural hazards real data case studies. After the workshops we will run a two-days conference (23-24 June 2016) with several keynote speakers / leading researchers in the field:

  • prof. dr. Mikhail Kanevski, Universite de Lausanne, Faculté des géosciences et de l'environnement, Lausanne, Switzerland
  • prof. dr. Wolfgang Wagner, Technical University of Wien, Department of Geodesy and geoinformation
  • dr. Ivana Cvijanović, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, CA USA 
  • dr. Ole Einar Tveito, Norwegian Meteorological Institute, Climatology Division, Oslo Norway
  • Dr. Andreas Papritz, ETH Zurich, , Department of Environmental Systems Science

The conference sessions will include topics on advances in climate science, modeling of climate data, spatio-temporal climate variations, meteo data sets, as well as geostatistical and machine learning applications in climate science, spatial interpolation of climate data, climate mapping.

Contributions will be published in the conference proceedings and distributed at the conference. A selection of extended abstracts will be invited for submission in a special issue.

All other information about the conference can be found at: http://geomla.org

IMPORTANT DEADLINES:

  • March 1st 2016 - abstract submission
  • April 15 th 2016 - early registration deadline

We are looking forward to seeing you in Belgrade!
