Call for Papers

The conference will be organized in thematic tracks and workshops (incl. PhD workshop). We expect at least 4 keynotes by high-ranking speakers from industry, the public sector and academia. In 2019 the event is parallel to the annual convention of the German “Gesellschaft für Informatik” that is also taking place at University of Kassel.

Rationale and conference topics

The EnviroInfo 2019 is the 33th edition of the long standing and established international and interdisciplinary conference series on leading environmental information and communication technologies. The conference is open for contributions covering innovative topics at the interface between informatics and environmental research.

Due to the interdisciplinary character of environmental informatics there is a wide range of topics that were already central to previous conferences and will be still in the heart of the EnvioInfo 2019. Examples include:

  • Earth Observation and Monitoring
  • Environmental Modelling and Simulation
  • Applications of Geographical Information Systems
  • Environmental Information Systems
  • Core technologies in Environmental Informatics: Big Data, Machine Learning etc.

In addition, the special focus of the conference lies on six fields where ICT technologies and tool play a crucial role to achieve the sustainability goals of the United Nations in context of the Agenda 2030 and to support societal transformation processes:

  • Smart cities
  • Sustainable transportation and energy systems
  • Managing and mitigating climate change and extreme events
  • Sustainable resource management and circular economy
  • Health and food security
  • Open and transdisciplinary science
  • Green Software Engineering
