The DRIHM and DRIHM2US projects organizes the first edition of the special session:

Turku, Finland, March 4-6, 2015


Special Session of the 23rd Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed, and Network-Based Processing (PDP 2015)



The design and implementation of e-infrastructures for Hydro-Meteorological Research (HMR) and for Civil Protection applications require solving a number of problems that are concerned with multidisciplinary and interoperability issues. At the heart of this challenge lies the ability to have easy access to forecasting model and data components, assembling them according to recognized standards and facilitating collaboration between the Hydro-Meteorological (HM) and IC communities. This is of particular importance because ICT methodologies and tools are often aimed at satisfying general needs resulting in a gap between specific HM modeling chain requirements and available tools. The goal is to relieve HM scientists from the burden of time-consuming activities as to install and optimize legacy forecast models that have been developed by such heterogeneous scientific community, to access and prepare the necessary data to run the models, to select the executable resources and monitor the simulation and to retrieve results, allowing them to focus mainly on how to improve the forecasts. The aim of this special session is to bring together HM and ICT researchers - and in perspective the Climate modeling community - in oder to present and discuss solutions for this applicative scenario.



Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • data access, management and exchange among heterogeneous HMR models
  • data base solutions for store, access and retrieve HMR data
  • setup, management and validation of complex HMR workflows on distributed infrastructures
  • HPC, Grid and Cloud experience in HMR
  • setup and management of e-Infrastructures for HMR
  • science gateway for HMR
  • advanced and user friendly interfaces to manage HMR forecasting
  • advanced remote visualization solutions for HMR simulation results
  • simple services for citizen scientists interested in HM



Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in the IEEE Conference proceedings format (IEEEtran, double-column, 10pt) to the Special Session through the EasyChair conference submission system (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pdp2015) with an indication of the name of the Special Session. Double-bind review: the paper should not contain authors names and affiliations; in the reference list, references to the authors' own work entries should be substituted with the string "omitted for blind review".



Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their papers at the Conference. All accepted papers will be included in the same volume, published by the IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Services (CPS). Conference proceedings will be indexed, among others, by IEEE explore, DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge. Selected high-quality papers from the session related to the use of Grid and Cloud technologies will be considered for a SPECIAL ISSUE of the Journal of Grid Computing (ISI IF 1.603).
