Call for PapersThe theme for the 2015 AMS Annual Meeting is “Fulfilling the Vision of Weather, Water, and Climate Information for Every Need, Time, and Place”. People, businesses, and governments depend increasingly on weather, water, and climate information matched to their specific needs. We are converging on a day when such information is integrated into nearly every decision or action people take. This revolution in highly targeted, customized information - delivered when and where it is most useful - will make our lives safer, more productive, and more enjoyable. The challenge for our community is this: collaborate and innovate to develop – and ultimately deliver – actionable, user-specific weather, water, and climate information across all spatial and temporal scales in support of our nation’s safety, health, and prosperity. The meeting will explore the many topics required for our community to implement this vision.
Following this theme, the 31st Conference on Environmental Information Processing Technologies (EIPT) is soliciting papers that demonstrate successes and advances in interactive computing tools; technologies and observing systems; data management and communication related to advances in observations, modeling, new technologies and media; cyber infrastructure; and applications that address the ability to provide information to a wide audience at any time, for any purpose.
The theme also allows for exploration of an array of topics including effective strategies for communication; social and policy theory; adaptation; mitigation; intervention; emergency response; and public behavior or perceptions. Further, the timeliness of the topic and its broad accessibility to the scientific, stakeholder and public communities should make it particularly appealing to many segments of our traditional AMS community, as well as nontraditional communities.
Papers addressing issues related to all forms of information processing technologies in the environmental sciences – including research institutions, private sector, government and education – are also being accepted.
