EUMEDGRID-Support Conference on Role of e-infrastructure
for Climate Change research
16 - 20 May 2011, ICTP, Trieste, Italy
Climate change is a worldwide concern and climate change studies are among the priorities in World-wide research programs. The increasing ability to understand complex, system-oriented phenomena such as climate change is strictly correlated with the need for increasing data and computing resources.The e-Infrastructures represent an innovative and unique approach to address this problem. They demonstrated to be an efficient way to share and access resources of different types which can effectively enhance the potential of scientific research and productivity.
This international conference will address the role of e-infrastructures toward a better understanding of climate change from the global to the regional scales. The main goal of this event is to expose the participating scientists and stakeholders to modern e-infrastructures (which includes an HPC and Grid environments) so that the potential provided by this infrastructure for climate change research can be assessed. It will provide the opportunity to enhance knowledge previously acquired and to acquire the core innovations emerging in this framework, for example the development of an European and worldiwide e-infrastructure for climate change applications driven by European Union projects such as Prace, EGI, EU-IndiaGRID2, EUMEDGRID-Support and others.
Scientists and students from all countries which are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA may attend the School. As it will be conducted in English, participants should have an adequate working knowledge of this language. As a rule, travel and subsistence expenses of the participants should be borne by the home institution. However, limited funds are available for some participants, who are working in the region and not more than 45 years of age. There is no registration fee.

CALL FOR PAPERS
For those interested in making an oral or poster presentation during the Conference, a one-page abstract (size A4) should be uploaded directly to the on-line application. (Please upload file attachments in .pdf). The time available for contributed oral presentations will be very limited; some authors who submit abstracts for oral presentations may be asked to present a poster instead.
The Exhibition offers a prime opportunity to showcase leading technologies to advance climate research and studies to a receptive audience of users, newcomers and policy makers from across the globe. The Exhibition is open to academic sectors, EC-funded projects, companies and SMEs, which can benefit from ample opportunities to deliberate top priorities for climate change and network with an international audience.
Exhibitors will have the opportunity to:
- Network with targeted audience of over 200 academia, science and technical leaders, researchers and users from around the world.
- Showcase cutting-edge technology and success stories to an international audience in the Exhibition Area.
- Present national or international initiatives for co-operation on cloud and e-Infrastructures with special focus on their possible application on climate change study and management.
- Demonstrate business and research achievements through funded projects or independently developed solutions.

For more than 45 years, the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) has been a driving force behind global efforts to advance scientific expertise in the developing world.Founded in 1964 by the late Nobel Laureate Abdus Salam, ICTP seeks to accomplish its mandate by providing scientists from developing countries with the continuing education and skills that they need to enjoy long and productive careers. ICTP has been a major force in stemming the scientific brain drain from the developing world.ICTP alumni serve as professors at major universities, chairpersons of academic departments, directors of research centres and ministers of science and technology in nations throughout the developing world. Many of them have been recognized in their own countries and internationally for their contributions to science and science policy. The impact of ICTP extends well beyond the Centre's facilities to virtually every corner of the Earth.
