2012 AgMIP Sub-Saharan Africa Workshop

September 10, 2012 - September 14, 2012
Accra, Ghana

AgMIP is a major international effort to assess the state of global agricultural modeling and to understand climate impacts on the agricultural sector.  The goals of AgMIP are to improve substantially the characterization of risk of hunger and world food security due to climate variability and change, and to enhance adaptation capacity in both developing and developed countries. To achieve these goals, AgMIP is establishing a robust and rigorous international research framework that connects climate, agriculture, economic and information technology…

The ABC of Ecoinformatics

May 8, 2013 @ 15:00 - 16:00
IMT Institute for Advanced Studies Lucca, Italy

This talk provides a gentle introduction to ecoinformatics, i.e. the science of information in ecology and environmental sciences, by presenting key concepts and research challenges. We investigate complex environmental applications of computer science and the enabling role of computer science for investigating nature. Technology focuses on knowledge representation, multi-agent systems, service-oriented software engineering and domain-specific programming languages; and is accompanied with applied research results in several domains, including agriculture, water management, air quality, ecosystem services, and meteorology.

Bridging Scales and Paradigms in Natural System Modelling

May 14, 2013 @ 13:00 - 14:00
Software Division Lecture Room Xanthi, Greece

Bridging Scales and Paradigms in Natural System Modelling an introduction to semantic meta-modelling Invited talk of Prof. Ferdinando Villa (SPICE Distinguished Speaker Series) Abstract: The greatly increasing amount of data available for scientific investigation is challenging our ability to understand, synthesize and describe the semantics of what these artifacts observe. In recent years, activities such as the Semantic Web have created a renewed interest for evolving unstructured “metadata” into more formal and accurate description of the datasets used in natural sciences…

First AgMIP-Semagrow Workshop: use cases for advanced data management based on semantic technologies

June 17, 2013 - June 18, 2013
Alterra, Wageningen University Wageningen, Netherlands

The first AgMIP-Semagrow Workshop aims to further develop use cases for Semgrow based on AgMIP problems of data management and modelling. AgMIP is a networking program for impacts of climate change on food security in particular in relation to crop production and economic effects. SemAgrow is an EU FP7 research project focusing on the application of semantic technologies and specifically semantic querying of big data to the agricultural domain. Secondary aims are: To get to know and learn from each…
