Organisers

The conference is organised by the EU Intereg North Sea partners in the SalFar project, in particular by the Waddenacademie in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands.

Building a community

Research underway along the North Sea countries and elsewhere in the world illustrates the vast and so far underrated potential of growing food on soils generally qualified as saline. Food production on present and future saline soils deserves the world’s attention in particular because 1) food security is a pressing issue, 2) millions of hectares of degraded soils are available world-wide, 3) fresh water is becoming increasingly scarce, and 4) global sea level rise threatens food production in fertile coastal lowlands.

Capitalizing on the vast potential of saline agriculture requires a major interdisciplinary and collaborative research effort to inform effective and supportive policy frameworks and to evaluate the most promising methods for developing saline agriculture in different regions of the globe. The conference intends to build on the conclusions of earlier conferences, such as FAO’s Global Forum on Salinization and Climate Change, Salinity Forum and ICBA’s International Workshop on Climate Change and Soil Salinity Dynamics.

4th IMA International Conference...
Sep 12 – Sep 13 all-day
As in the recent publication of the IPCC AR5 report, flood risks have been again highlighted as one of the most perceivable indicators when it comes to the understanding of climate change impact. Research on flood risk has never been ampler, yet we still witness the growing causalities of severe flooding around globe on a yearly basis. The stark resemblance of the consequences between the two catastrophic flooding events in both Japan and Indonesia 2018, exposes a bitter reality that there are still knowledge gaps where both the academia and the practitioners need to fill, with no exception for even the developed world.

Continuing from the successful series of previous IMA Conferences on Flood Risk, the IMA is planning its 4th International Conference on this topic in 2019 to bring together engineers, mathematicians and statisticians working in the field. The conference intends to be used as a forum for participants to meet and exchange their views on important technical issues, new and emerging methods and technologies in assessing flood risks in a world that is being altered by the climate change and moving towards an uncertain future. The emphasis will be on new developments in mathematical modelling methods, statistical techniques in assessing flood risks, especially on quantification of flood risks with a nonstationary climate and modelling uncertainty. Methods and application of assimilating new data from cutting-edge new type of observations will be among the topics for discussion. The conference will be of interest to flood defence practitioners; flood defence managers; statisticians, mathematicians, civil engineers.

Sep 24 – Sep 25 all-day

European Research and Innovation Days are an annual policy event that will bring together world leaders from industry, finance, academia and business to debate and shape the future research and innovation landscape.

Speakers will include ministers, commissioners, members of European Parliament, researchers, as well as surprise guests each day.

The conference aims to mobilise EU citizens and increase awareness and understanding of how important research and innovation are in addressing the challenges that face society. It will be a celebration of the very best EU research and innovation has to offer. A key challenge for Europe is delivering the next great transition of our economy, society and planet to secure a sustainable future that ensures the wellbeing of citizens. The event will be central to finding research and innovation solutions for this great transition by working across polices, setting the direction, spurring innovation, triggering investment, and mobilising citizens and end-users.

Engaging stakeholders to co-create and build the strategic priorities for the first 4 years of Horizon Europe, will be at the heart of the 2019 European Research and Innovation Days.

ICE Coastal Management 2019 @ La Rochelle
Sep 24 – Sep 26 all-day

ICE Coastal Management 2019 will gather delegates from around the world to focus on new approaches to coastal engineering that integrate planning and ‘place-shaping’ to encourage bold adaptation to coastal change, and that balance environmental and community concerns.

Sep 28 – Oct 4 all-day

This conference merges up to three unique satellite conferences into one major event. It has been the practice of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography, and Climatology (SatMetOC) Committee (organizers of the 23rd AMS Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography and Climatology Conference) and the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT; organizers of the 2019 EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference) to hold joint conferences approximately every six years, most recently in Vienna (2013), and previously in Amsterdam (2007) and Paris (1998).

Oct 13 – Oct 18 all-day

The mathematics of climate change is one of the grand challenges of 21st century. Atmospheric phenomena range from large scale monsoons and jet stream meanders with spatial scales of thousands of km’s and time-scales of months to years all the way down to individual cumulus clouds formed by turbulence with spatial scales of 100 meters and time-scales of minutes. This workshop will help develop the mathematics necessary to advance our understanding of how to efficiently and accurately link these physical processes. Improvements in this “physics-dynamics” coupling is the major obstacle to improved accuracy of climate models.
