About the Conference


Sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Mathematics of Planet Earth.

Climate change, biodiversity, infectious diseases, sustainability, energy, food, and water are among the areas of greatest global concern. The SIAM Activity Group on Mathematics of Planet Earth (SIAG/MPE) provides a forum for mathematicians and computational scientists engaged in these critical priority areas. The interests of SIAG/MPE span the range from developing quantitative techniques to providing policy makers with tools for qualitative decision support.


Included Themes
  • Planet Earth as a physical system: climate dynamics, oceans, atmosphere, cryosphere, earth and space;
  • Planet Earth as a system supporting life: mathematical ecology, carbon cycle, food systems, natural resources, sustainability;
  • Planet Earth as a system organized by humans: land use, energy, communication, transportation, socio-economics;
  • Planet Earth as a system at risk: global change, biodiversity, water, food security, epidemics, extreme events.
