Building Resilience to Climate Driven Extreme Events with Computing Innovations: A Convergence Accelerator Workshop


On November 10, 2022 from 12-3pm EST, the Computing Community Consortium is hosting a virtual workshop sponsored by the National Science Foundation’s Convergence Accelerator program. This workshop will be the second of a two-part workshop series titled, Building Resilience to Climate Driven Extreme Events with Computing Innovations: A Convergence Accelerator Workshop, the first of which will be held in-person.

Through this workshop series, we hope to identify the computing building blocks needed to facilitate and expedite technological innovation in multiple impact areas. We plan to focus on a subset of the impact areas identified in the CCC white paper titled, Computing Research for the Climate Crisis: Energy, Environmental Justice, Agriculture, and Transportation. The virtual component will have an open registration for all relevant researchers and practitioners with expertise in these and other fields related to climate research. During this virtual workshop, we will discuss the emerging themes developed during the in-person workshop and identify additional areas to explore. Breakout groups will help facilitate engagement from all interested parties. Please register here.
