Climate change is a worldwide concern and climate change studies are among the priorities in Worldwide 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.
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.
Preliminary Program of the Conference:
➢ Monday, 16 May Welcome Session: 18:00
➢ Tuesday, 17 May Morning Session: High-level shareholders
Afternoon Session: e-infrastructure for Climate Research
Evening Session: Poster Session I
➢ Wednesday, 18 May Morning Session: Frontiers in Climate Modeling
Afternoon Session: Use of climate information in support of adaptation/mitigation policies
Evening Session: Poster Session II

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.
