In the context of the DRIHM Seasonal School in Madrid between 22nd and 25th September, a DRIHM2US meeting has been organized. The aim was to discuss the granted no-cost extension of the DRIHM2US project and the next steps. A special focus was on:

  • Present material from the joint DRIHM2US / SCIHM initiatives to the Seasonal School audience;
  • Review the results of completed activities;
  • Discuss the final event;
  • Finalise the details of activities which were originally scheduled to complete but which could now continue further under the new project schedule.

In the context of iEMSs - International Congress on Environmental Modelling and Software (iEMSs) June 15-19, 2014, San Diego, California, a DRIHM2US Meeting has been organized on the June 16. The aim is to enable an open discussion about DRIHM2US and SCIHM projects cooperation with a special focus on the next steps/deliverables, and in particula the events schedule at iEMSs.

Agenda of the meeting:

  • Domain Expert Networking Session;
  • Discussion about the DRIHM/DRIHM2US events organized at iEMSs 2014;
  • Check of decisions taken about the vocabularies and cataloguing;
  • Discussion abou interoperability exercise.

Workshop B1 "Using Research Infrastructures for Integrated Environmental Modeling"

Tues 17th June, iEMSs 2014, San Diego


Environmental systems couple many natural processes and simulating them accurately demands modeling them in a similar fashion. Integrated environmental modeling seeks to achieve this by assembling collections of linked (model and data) components, supporting different aspects of the combined system.

At the heart of this challenge lies the ability to have easy access to model and data components, assembling them according to recognized standards and facilitating collaboration between the appropriate scientific and ICT communities. This is of particular importance because ICT methods are often aimed at satisfying general needs resulting in a gap between specific modeling chain requirements and available tools.

This workshop will allow integrated environmental modelling and its associated data environments and tools to be debated and demonstrated. It is intended to promote discussion between scientists, who develop and use environmental models and data and the ICT communities who typically provide the necessary infrastructure and tools. It accompanies a session with a similar theme where a selection of associated papers were presented.
