The 23rd International Conference on
“Advanced and Computational Methods for Earth Science applications”
in conjunction with
The 2023 International Conference on Computational
Science and its Applications (ICCSA 2023)
July 3rd – July 6th 2023
In the framework of the 23rd International Conference on Computational Science and its Applications (ICCSA 2023, more information at http://www.iccsa.org/), to be held in Athens (Greece) and remotely online, on 3-6 July 2023, the fourth edition of the scientific Workshop on Advanced and Computational Methods for Earth Science applications (WACM4ES 2023) is organised.
The workshop will host contributions (but is not limited) focusing on the theoretical and methodological approaches related to advanced and computational methods for earth science applications. More precisely, the pertinent topics will include:
- Advanced applications of proximal and remote sensing, applied geophysics for engineering, environmental and cultural heritage issues;
- Natural resources characterisation, soil vulnerability, groundwater quality assessment, saltwater intrusion, soil salinisation, coastal erosion, and pollutant transport;
- Geological risks assessment: subsidence, landslides and instability issues, volcanoes, earthquakes;
- Wide area prospections;
- Automated and unmanned vehicles-based acquisitions;
- Drones and aerial observations;
- Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning applications to Earth Science and Earth Observation;
- Smart solutions for Earth Sciences;
- Earth Sciences towards sustainability;
- Modelling, data mining, and evaluation techniques for Earth science;
- Risk assessment, early warning and forecasting techniques and applications;
- Environmental monitoring and in-situ observations;
- Extreme event observations and analysis;
- Multispectral and hyperspectral data acquisition methods and applications.
Given the focus of the Conference on Computational Science issues, the workshop welcomes contributions on ICT and computational aspects, proposals, and applications from a wide variety of scholars on the above-mentioned issues.
Engineers, Geoscientists, Geologists, Urban and Regional Planners, Geographers and Economic Geographers, Environmental Engineers, among others are welcome to contribute.
Each paper will be independently reviewed by 3 programme committee members. Their individual scores will be evaluated by a small sub-committee and result in one of the following final decisions: accepted, or accepted on the condition that suggestions for improvement will be incorporated, or rejected. Notification of this decision will take place on May 2023.
Individuals and groups should submit complete papers (12 to 18 pages).
Accepted contributions will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) volumes
Please adhere strictly to the formatting provided in the template to prepare your paper and refrain from modifying it. The submitted paper must be camera-ready and formatted according to the rules of LNCS. For formatting information, see the publisher’s web site (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0). Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.
Papers should be submitted at: http://ess.iccsa.org/
Please don’t forget to select “Workshop on Advanced and Computational Methods for Earth Science applications (WACM4ES 2023)” workshop from the drop-down list of all workshops.
Papers accepted to “WACM4ES 2023” will be published in the ICCSA Conference proceedings, in Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, with doi, indexed by WOS, Scopus and DBLP.
