Workshop Overview

Climate informatics broadly refers to any research combining climate science with approaches from statistics, machine learning and data mining. The Climate Informatics workshop series, now in its sixth year, seeks to bring together researchers from all of these areas. We aim to stimulate the discussion of new ideas, foster new collaborations, grow the climate informatics community, and thus accelerate discovery across disciplinary boundaries. The format of the workshop seeks to overcome cross disciplinary language barriers and to emphasize communication between participants by featuring tutorials, invited talks, panel discussions, posters and breakout sessions. The programs of previous workshops from 2011 to 2015 can be found here

We invite all researchers interested in learning about critical issues and opportunities in the field of climate informatics to join us, whether established in the field or just starting out.Since earth system sciences can be brought to bear on the study of climate, the scope of the workshop also includes data science approaches to problems at the nexus of climate and the earth system sciences.

Workshop Short Papers:

We encourage submissions on topics anywhere at the interface of climate science and machine learning, statistics, data mining, or related fields. Reviews, position papers, and works in progress, are also encouraged. Topics include but are NOT limited to:

Machine learning, statistics, or data mining, applied to climate science

Management and processing of large climate datasets

Long and short term climate prediction

Ensemble characterization of climate model projections

Paleoclimate reconstruction

Uncertainty quantification

Spatiotemporal methods applied to climate data

Time series methods applied to climate data

Methods for modeling, detecting and predicting climate extremes

Climate change attribution

Dependence and causality among climate variables

Detection and characterization of climate teleconnections

Data assimilation

Climate model parameterizations

Hybrid methods

Other data science approaches at the nexus of climate and earth system sciences

Short Paper Submission:

Short Paper submission deadline is Friday, July 15, 2016. Papers may be up to 3 pages long excluding references and up to 1 page of references (double column format) and submission will be through EasyChair. Latex and Word templates, as well as detailed submission instructions is available on the web page,

Important Dates:

Friday, July 15, 2016, Short papers due

Wednesday, August 10, 2016, Authors notification

Wednesday, September 21, 2016, Climate Informatics Hackathon

Travel Fellowships:

We are excited to announce that travel fellowships for early career scientists will again be available,

thanks to NSF support. Details will be available on the website,


We will have a data science “hackathon” in the afternoon of September 21, 2016, to solve a challenging problem in climate informatics. Details will be available on the website,
