Aim&Scope [top]

We have a great pleasure to invite you to participate in the Third International Workshop on Cyberinfrastructures for Natural Resources Management (CyRM-2017). CyRM-2017 covers the latest advances in Cyberinfrastructures. Integrated and comprehensive approaches in decision-making processes associated with the management of natural resources are necessary in acute problems, triggered by direct or indirect human interventions in the natural systems within which we live. Natural resources management requires the processing of a huge amount of information with different levels of accessibility and availability and in various formats. Often, the data acquisition needs to be acquired, transmitted and accessed in real time. Equally important is to have access to historical data for calibration and validation of the models. With regard to the accessibility of stakeholders to information, there are situations when information is to be accessed only by designated stakeholders, but there is a huge amount of information that is, and should be handled, as public information. The aim of the workshop is to share results and stimulate research in the field of integrated and inclusive cyberinfrastructures for management of natural resources. These will integrate technologies and algorithmic aspects from many domains: artificial intelligence, distributed and mobile computing, human-computer interfaces, sensor networks, collaborative and pervasive computing, robotics, context aware computing, and others.
The Workshop will bring together scientists and practitioners interested in discussing and exchanging views on how to make better use of technologically advanced systems in the proper and responsible management of natural resources. A debate on future directions of research in the area will be organized by the end of the Workshop, giving the participants the possibility to share ideas and make new contacts. CyRM-2017 will be held in conjunction with the 21th International Conference on Control Systems and Computer Science (CSCS 21) in Bucharest, Romania, 29-31 May 2017, http://cscs21.acs.pub.ro.
This edition of the CyRM-2017 workshop is organized in the framework of the H2020 Data4Water International Project (H2020-TWINN-2015, Project no. 690900; http://data4water.pub.ro/). We aim to foster a better common understanding, to exchange visions and latest research results addressing Cyberinfrastructure supporting technologies, and to highlight open research challenges.
