October 25, 2022

The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is hosting a virtual workshop sponsored by the National Science Foundation’s Convergence Accelerator program on Nov. 10.

Building Resilience to Climate Driven Extreme Events with Computing Innovations: A Convergence Accelerator Workshop will be held from noon-3 p.m. EST and is the second of a two-part workshop series, the first of which is being held this week in Denver.

Melanie Moses, a professor of computer science at The University of New Mexico, is a member of the organizing committee.

The workshop hopes to identify the computing building blocks needed to facilitate and expedite technological innovation in multiple impact areas. The focus of the workshops will be on a subset of impact areas identified in the CCC white paper titled, Computing Research for the Climate Crisis: Energy, Environmental Justice, Agriculture, and Transportation.

The virtual workshop has open registration for all relevant researchers and practitioners with expertise in these and other fields related to climate research. During this virtual workshop, emerging themes developed during the in-person workshop will be discussed, as well as identifying additional areas to explore. Breakout groups will help facilitate engagement from all interested parties.
