The solutions of many scientific problems in Earth Sciences are tightly related with HPC and Data-Intensive applications. In 2012 PRACE identified different challenges in the scientific areas related with Earth Sciences, from the climate change issues and the uncertainty assessment related to Earth System modelling - including reanalyses for ocean and atmosphere - to ocean, marine, weather and flood events forecasting with high socio-economic and environmental impact, to natural hazard mitigation - including seismic, volcanic, tsunami and landslides.
The event will feature outstanding key-note speakers and world recognized scientists, in the actively stimulating environment of the ICTP of Trieste.
The two days of Symposium will be devoted to present:
Grants are available from participants coming from the EU region - outside the Trieste area - that can certify to be not funded by their institutions to attend the symposium. The grant amounts to 200 euro for participants from abroad Italy and to 100 euro for participants coming from Italy.
Eligible participants are requested to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Symposium on HPC and Data-Intensive Applications in Earth Sciences: Challenges and Opportunities - GRANT REQUEST", attaching a copy of the invitation letter to the event - received from ICTP. Additional documentation will also be requested. Grants are delivered only a month later to the end of the event and subjected to the verification that the eligible participant registered to the Symposium.
