Siberian Center for Environment Research and Training (SCERT) together with the Institute for Numerical Mathematics RAS (INM), Institute of Monitoring of Climatic and Ecological Systems SB RAS (IMCES), Scientific Research Computer Center of the Moscow State University, Institute of Applied Mathematical Research KarRC RAS, Institute of Northern Water Problems KarRC RAS, Karelia Research Center, Petrozavodsk State University with the anticipated support of WMO, RFBR, NASA, NOAA, and the US and Russian private companies will hold the twelve-days scientific educational action comprising International Young Scientists School on Computational Information Technologies for Environmental Sciences CITES-2013 with the International Conference devoted to the same theme.
Major topic of
During the first two days, seven general introductory lectures will be presented by leading specialists in the area. Then lecture courses providing deep insight into the theme will be delivered to school attendants during the subsequent five days. The courses will be supported by specially developed practical training.
Please note that during the School the lectures will be delivered in Russian.
The school co-directors are Vasily Lykosov, Evgeny Gordov and Vladimir Mazalov
The School scientific program will be devoted to the following aspects: Modeling of ocean, sea and inland water reservoirs dynamics; Geophysical boundary layers; Hydrophysical fields assimilation system; Regional aspects of atmosphere–hydrosphere interactions; Dynamic and evolutionary models in ecological problems;
The Training Sessions will be run in specially equipped computer classes of
Upon finishing the event, the school attendants will obtain certificates with the list of the courses taken.
Then the school attendees and Lecturers will take part in the CITES-2013 International Conference whose audience will be enlarged by a number of prominent scientists. There, school attendees will be able to present their results and receive new knowledge in the spheres of their interest. At the Conference several additional invited one-hour lectures of leading Russian and foreign specialists on modern problems of computational information technologies development and their application in environmental sciences are planned.
Working language of the Conference is English.
