4th IMA International Conference on Flood Risk
12 sep 2019 - 13 sep 2019 • Swansea, Royaume-Uni
Organisateur:
Institute of Mathematics & its Applications (IMA)
Résumé:
As in the recent publication of the IPCC AR5 report, flood risks have been again highlighted as one of the most perceivable indicators when it comes to the understanding of climate change impact. Research on flood risk has never been ampler, yet we still witness the growing causalities of severe flooding around globe on a yearly basis. The stark resemblance of the consequences between the two catastrophic flooding events in both Japan and Indonesia 2018, exposes a bitter reality that there are still knowledge gaps where both the academia and the practitioners need to fill, with no exception for even the developed world.

Continuing from the successful series of previous IMA Conferences on Flood Risk, the IMA is planning its 4th International Conference on this topic in 2019 to bring together engineers, mathematicians and statisticians working in the field. The conference intends to be used as a forum for participants to meet and exchange their views on important technical issues, new and emerging methods and technologies in assessing flood risks in a world that is being altered by the climate change and moving towards an uncertain future. The emphasis will be on new developments in mathematical modelling methods, statistical techniques in assessing flood risks, especially on quantification of flood risks with a nonstationary climate and modelling uncertainty. Methods and application of assimilating new data from cutting-edge new type of observations will be among the topics for discussion. The conference will be of interest to flood defence practitioners; flood defence managers; statisticians, mathematicians, civil engineers.

Workshop: Building reproducible workflows for earth sciences
14 oct 2019 - 16 oct 2019 • Reading, Royaume-Uni
Résumé:
ECMWF's research and operational activities are computationally expensive and constantly need to scale further with new requirements and challenges. There is a high demand for the use of new mechanisms for sharing code, data, environments and making the scientific workflow more reproducible and flexible to move to new platforms. For example, for the upcoming move to ECMWF's new data centre in Bologna, Italy, we would like to explore new and robust technologies to develop reproducible workflows and how cloud computing could benefit from them.

If you are facing the same challenges, willing to share your experience or simply interested in reproducible scientific workflows, please join us for a technical workshop held at ECMWF's headquarters in Reading from 14 to 16 October 2019.

Submit an abstract and tell us about your experience, we have planned a three-day event with oral and poster sessions to give everyone the opportunity to discuss successes/challenges and learn from each other.
