About DAMES'2010

Following the success of the 1st International meeting on Data Analysis and Modelling in Earth Sciences (DAMES), the 2nd International conference on Data Analysis and Modelling in Earth Sciences DAMES'2010 will be held at IDL, University of Lisbon, Portugal, from 22 to 24 September 2010.

The objective of the conference is to bring together researchers dealing with data analysis and modelling in all fields of Earth Sciences, promoting the exchange of knowledge on both methodological developments and Earth Science applications.

Specific topics may come from all fields of Earth Sciences, including atmospheric sciences, present-day and palaeo-climatology, meteorology, hydrology, oceanography, geodynamics, seismology, and solar-terrestrial physics. Contributions on applied topics such as environmental risk analysis, electricity networks, or sustainability sciences are encouraged.

The programme of the conference will include plenary oral sessions with keynote lectures and contributed talks, a poster session and a social event including conference dinner.
To particularly encourage the participation of young scientists, the meeting will be preceded on 20 and 21 September by a Short Course on methodological topics. The course is aimed at young scientists and researchers from all fields of geosciences interested in methodological developments and in practical data analysis and modelling approaches.
