Conference on the Role of e-infrastructures on Climate Change Research
|May 16, 2011||May 20, 2011|
|Organisers||Interantional Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP)|
Co-sponsored by EU-IndiaGrid2, EUMEDGRID-Support, CHAIN and INFN, this international conference will address the role of e-infrastructures toward a better understanding of climate change from the global to the regional scales. The main goal of this event is to expose the participating scientists and stakeholders to modern e-infrastructures (which includes an HPC and Grid environments) so that the potential provided by this infrastructure for climate change research can be assessed. It will also provide the opportunity to enhance knowledge previously acquired and to acquire the core innovations emerging in this framework.
A series of sessions on May 17 will focus on regional perspectives from around the world: from India to Europe, from Latin America to Africa, e-Infrastructure is being exploited to improve research into climate change. Following a keynote introduction from Kostas Glinos, Head of unit, GÉANT and e-Infrastructures, European Commission, DG Information and Society, best practices and use cases will be highlighted offering important insights of regional advances in this field.
The participation in the event is free of charge.
