International Conference on Environmental Observations, Modeling and Information Systems ENVIROMIS-2004
17-25 July 2004, Akademgorodok, Tomsk, Russia

The third in series multidisciplinary Conference comprising elements of Young Scientists School 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 Global Change. It is aimed at filling a gap between basic science achievements and their practical applications in this domain as well as at creating a solid foundation for mitigation of pollution and environmental management for industrial areas on city and regional scale.
One of thematic focuses of the Conference will be devoted to detailed discussion of the climatic Hot Spots recently detected in the Northern Eurasia. Being a region where climate variations are most pronounced and whose potential influences on the Earth System operation as a whole, it has attracted recently attention of number of research and funding organizations, notably Siberian Branch of RAS, NASA, IGBP and FP6 ESD Programme. We plan to devote this theme special 3 day INTAS strategic scientific workshop “Towards integrated multidisciplinary study of the Northern Eurasia climatic Hot Spot” included into the conference fabric. The workshop will take place on 23-25 July.
