International Conference on Environmental Observations, Modeling and Information Systems

TOMSK, JULY, 01 - 06

About

Institute of Monitoring of Climatic and Ecological Systems SB RAS, G.I. Marchuk Institute of Numerical Mathematics RAS, Research Computing Center of Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow Center of Fundamental and Applied Mathematics and Hydrometсenter of Russia organize International Conference on Environmental Observations, Modeling and Information Systems ENVIROMIS-2024, July 1-6, 2024, Tomsk, Russia. The conference is held as a part of events dedicated to the 300th anniversary of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the 270th anniversary of Moscow University.

The conference will be devoted to the state-of-the-art and usage of modern environmental observation techniques, computational and information technologies for assessment, modeling and mitigation of environment variations under natural and anthropogenic pressure including those caused by the Global Climate Change. It is aimed at filling the gap between basic science achievements and their practical applications in this domain.

Presentation and discussion of scientific results in priority areas in Earth sciences within the framework of the Conference will allow participants to consider in detail the current trends in the interaction and dynamics of natural systems, identify climate-forming processes and factors, discuss the development of modern climate models and forecast models, their verification and practical application, and also determine optimal directions for further research and opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration. Particular attention at the conference will be paid to a detailed discussion of the state and dynamics of the environment in Northern Eurasia, especially Siberia and the Arctic, where climate changes are most pronounced. Being the regions whose potential influence on the Earth System operation as a whole is of importance, these regions have attracted the attention of a number of research organizations. Various international programs are actively working here, one of them is Northern Eurasia Future Initiative (NEFI). The research results obtained within the framework of this program have been presented at previous ENVIROMIS conferences.

The conference program, consisting of thematic sessions devoted to various aspects of environmental studies, will promote interdisciplinary collaboration among scientists, creating a basis for the study of the Earth system at the global and regional levels.

The conference is planned to be held in person. In some cases, the Program Committee will provide the opportunity to participate online. Working languages at the Conference are English and Russian. During the Conference Sessions simultaneous translation from Russian will be provided. As part of the conference, a competition of young scientists’ reports named after RAS Corresponding Member V.N. Lykosov will be held.
