Call for participation: 11th Conference on AI and applications to the environment
  • 11th Conference on Artificial and Computational Intelligence and its Applications to the Environmental Sciences

                Our annual conference brings together AI researchers and environmental scientists, with the goal of increasing the synergy between the two. We aim to increase the understanding and use of AI techniques in the environmental sciences and to demonstrate the wide range of open problems in the environmental sciences.  AI encompasses a broad field of computational intelligence disciplines including data mining, machine learning, statistical  learning, self-organizing systems, evolutionary learning and expert systems.

               This year’s AMS annual theme is “Taking Predictions to the Next Level: Expanding Beyond Today's Weather, Water, and Climate Forecasting and Projections.”  We expect to have a number of joint sessions in line with the theme.

               In addition to the regular paper sessions, we will hold the sixth annual forecasting contest, which may include a sponsored cash prize. Details and instructions will be available at the committee website (http://ai.metr.ou.edu/) by July 2012, including links to the contest dataset. Individuals or teams are invited to train the technique of their choice to generate predictions for an independent test dataset. 

               In addition to the joint sessions, the AI conference will hold general sessions for papers on the following topics:

    • Applications of data mining/knowledge discovery and improved understanding of large environmental science datasets
    • Applications of AI in numerical weather prediction
    • Applications of AI in weather product evaluation (e.g., via expert system models of decision processes or agent-based models of impacts)
    • Applications of AI to decision support system development
    • Applications of AI to environmental science problems
    • Applications of AI to probabilistic predictions, uncertainty estimates or risk analysis
    • Exposition of new or existing AI methods relevant to the environmental sciences

    This year, the conference will offer some student travel funds to the students who submit the best papers into the conference.
