International Conference on The Networked Digital Earth


Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur, West Bengal, India

March 7, 2018 (All day) to March 9, 2018 (All day)
Registration Required
March 7, 2018 (All day) to March 9, 2018 (All day)

The overarching idea is to fuse the idea of the Digital Earth [1-2] with the concept of Globally Networked Risks [3], with a particular focus on how data and network science can help provide solutions in domains ranging from sustainable cities and resilient infrastructures to the climate-water-energy-food-ecosystems nexus and public health including spread of epidemics. From a methods perspective, we have a particular interest in cascading processes (including propagation of failures, effective recovery strategies in system of systems and uncertainty propagation), the Big Data - small data problem (including rare events mining, extreme value analysis, and extraction of signatures or elusive indicators of change or rare events), physics guided machine learning and hybrid physics-data systems (including data assimilation, stochastic PDEs, component based hybrid systems), as well as translation to decisions (including game theory, Markov decision processes, adversarial systems, and real world interfaces).
