Climate informatics workshop series

The Climate Informatics workshop series was founded in 2011 by machine learning researcher Claire Monteleoni and NASA director Gavin A. Schmidt. Climate informatics broadly refers to any research combining climate science with approaches from statistics, machine learning, mathematics, and data mining. In its 9th year now, the workshops aim to stimulate the discussion of new ideas, foster new collaborations, grow the climate informatics community, and thus accelerate discovery across disciplinary boundaries. The format of the workshop seeks to overcome cross-disciplinary language barriers and to emphasize communication between participants by featuring tutorials, hackathons, invited talks, panel discussions, posters and break-out sessions. In its 8th year the workshop has attracted more than 100 participants from more than 13 countries, a large part from Europe. Proceedings of the 2018 workshop can be found here.
