ACES 2017 - Workshop on Advanced Computing for Earth Sciences

The future of humankind depends largely on building a more sustainable world.

This workshop focuses on the relevant application areas such as climate change, ocean modeling, space exploration and energy systems, as well as on underlying CS technologies such as computing platforms for large scale modeling and simulation and systems for archiving, processing, curating, analysing, and disseminating vast amounts of data.

The workshop features invited speakers renowned for their research on computational sustainability, simulation and modelling of complex geophysical systems, the ocean and its role in the global climate system, sea unmanned vehicles, Earth and planetary computational science, big data analytics, and infrastructures for scientific applications.

The discussions at this workshop will help to set future research directions for the new International Research Center to be established in the Azores (AIR Center) by the Portuguese government, focusing particularly on the North and South Atlantic.
