A chronological list of workshops and conferences can be found at events! New Positions are announced under Researchers and Groups.

Workshop on Meteorological Sensitivity Analysis and Data Assimilation

                          1st Announcement
Workshop on Meteorological Sensitivity Analysis and Data Assimilation
                  1-5 June 2015  Roanoke, West Virginia

Sponsored by: Morgan Sate University, Baltimore Maryland The U. S. National Science Foundation The Global Modelling and Assimilation Office at NASA Goddard

This is the 10th in the series of “Adjoint Workshops” that began in 1992. It is intended to provide public evaluation of new works, reviews of techniques, and tutorials on fundamentals. Historically, more than half of each workshop has been devoted to data assimilation issues. Presentations from oceanography, geo-sciences, or engineering are welcome as are applications of techniques that do not include adjoint models but concern the applications to which they may otherwise apply. Opportunities for oral and poster presentations will be available. Unlike at larger meetings, all presenters will be instructed to “teach us something that you have learned” rather than to “advertise to us what you have done.” The audience will be provided ample time and encouragement to critique and discuss all presentations. Information regarding the previous workshop in this series may be found at

This 10th workshop will be held 1-5 June 2015 at the Stonewall Resort in Roanoke, West Virginia ( This is a very secluded conference center located on a lake within a State Park, where all participants are expected to room, dine, and socialize. The all-inclusive cost, exclusive of travel, per person for each of the five days will be approximately $260 single occupancy, $180 double. There will be no other registration fee. The closest airports are Clarksburg WV (CKB) and Pittsburgh PA (PIT). Some kind of transit to/from the hotel may be arranged in the future.

Funds will be available for a limited number of students and postdocs to provide partial travel support (primarily the local expenses). A brief set of pre-workshop tutorials describing some fundamentals not generally presented elsewhere will be offered on 31 May to help novices in the field to spin up their understanding. Workshop supported students and postdocs will be expected to attend these tutorials.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN RECEIVING FURTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS, PLEASE RESPOND TO; OTHERWISE NO FURTHER MAILINGS WILL BE SENT TO YOU. ALSO, PLEASE PASS THIS TO ANY COLLEAGUES WHO MAY BE INTERESTED. If you are a student or postdoc requesting travel support from the workshop, include the name of your institution, (expected) degree date, and topic of study. Further instructions will be provided sometime this fall.

Please see the workshop website for further information:

Dynamic Data-Driven Environmental Systems Science Conference

June 24, 2014. We are delighted to announce the Dynamic Data-Driven Environmental Systems Science Conference (DyDESS 2014; ), to be held at MIT (Cambridge, MA) in November 2014.

DyDESS seeks papers integrating Data and modeling for environmental applications, particularly Data Assimilation, Uncertainty Quantification, Adaptive Sampling, Sensing, Autonomy and Learning. A strong program committee, great speakers, single-track format, an emphasis on connecting science and methodology, and discussions of emerging opportunities allows researchers to network and track the environmental systems science landscape at the excellent MIT location.

We invite you to submit an extended abstract/paper following the attached call. It can also be found here:

Looking forward to seeing you in Boston!

Sincerely, Sai Ravela, Adrian Sandu, Dennis Bernstein For DyDESS 2014

NCEO CEOI Joint Conference June 2014 - 24th Jun 14, University of Sheffield

June 6, 2014. The NCEO and CEOI Joint Conference 2014 will be held at the University of Sheffield from 24 - 27 June 2014. You can register here: Registration will close on 14 June.

The conference will have inter-disciplinary NCEO/CEOI-ST plenary sessions, which will include talks from each of the science, technology and applications perspectives. Posters will be displayed for the duration of the conference, and there will be poster sessions on both Wednesday and Thursday evenings. In addition, those submitting posters will be invited to give a oneminute poster talk during a plenary session (to introduce posters relevant to that session). On Friday, the final 2 plenary sessions will be devoted to “Future Opportunities” and will include a talk by John Remedios – Incoming Director of NCEO. The plenary sessions of the conference will finish at lunchtime on Friday, when the NCEO will hold a “Café Scientifique” from 1-3pm: an opportunity for NCEO’s early career scientists to brainstorm with colleagues.

Here is a copy of the conference programme:

Applied Inverse Problems Conference 2015

May 2, 2014. Inverse problems arise from the need to interpret indirect measurements. Such situations are common in many application areas such as medical imaging, nondestructive testing, underground prospecting, astronomical imaging, remote sensing, image processing, and data mining. Scientific research of inverse problems is multidisciplinary and involves for example mathematics, physics, engineering and signal processing.

The Applied Inverse Problems (AIP) conference series is the premier scientific meeting of the field, organized by Inverse Problems International Association (IPIA) every two years. The next AIP Conference will be held in Helsinki, Finland, in May 25-29, 2015. The official conference website is The local organizing institution is the Finnish Inverse Problems Society (
