Virtual Outreach Conference: Reaching out from Maths and Environmental Science. (Back to Top)

2 - 4pm, 21st June 2016, University of Exeter.

The purpose of this virtual meeting will be to discuss how best to communicate climate, environmental and mathematical science to non-experts. Through the use of examples of best practice, we aim to inspire and provide guidance on the delivery of effective outreach activities to:

a) Schools,

b) General public,

c) Policymakers,

d) Commercial / Industrial partners.

In addition, we will aim to provide guidance, support and information regarding Outreach funding.

The conference schedule will include an hour long "Show & Tell" session, where experienced Outreach Practitioners will give examples of best practice and share their outreach experiences. Following this there will be an interactive Panel Discussion, in which we will discuss the best way forward for delivering effective outreach communications for climate, environmental and mathematical sciences.

Confirmed Speakers Include:
• Claire Burke (Met Office): The dos and don'ts of communicating science to the general public
• Tamsin Edwards (Open University): Working with the Media
• Erica Thompson (Centre for the Analysis of Time Series): Involvement with the Global Calculator climate outreach project
• Valborg Byfield (National Oceanography Centre): Designing interactive electronic science books for a general audience in ways that can avoid scaring readers with a fear of mathematics
• Stuart Townley (University of Exeter): Reaching out from the Environment and Sustainability Institute


This Virtual Conference will be delivered live using the web videoconferencing service WebEx. Please note that you will need a reasonable broadband service and microphone/speakers to receive and participate in the Conference. In addition, a webcam is required if you are delivering the seminar.

Data Analysis and Modeling in Earth Sciences (DAMES) - Biannual international conference series (Back to Top)

26-28 September 2016 in Hamburg

During the last few decades, the increasing public and scientific interest in geoscientific problems has triggered enormous efforts to obtain, analyze and interpret data that contain substantial information about the dynamics of the complex system ''Earth''. For this purpose, novel techniques not only for recording data, but also for their statistical evaluation and data-based modeling had to be developed.

Aims and Scope of the Conference
The objective of the international conference series “Data Analysis and Modeling in Earth Sciences” (DAMES) is to bring together researchers dealing with data analysis and modeling in all fields of Earth Sciences, promoting the exchange of knowledge on both methodological developments and Earth Science applications across disciplines. Specific topics come from all fields of Earth Sciences, including atmospheric sciences, hydrology, oceanography, present-day and paleo-climatology, climate change and its impacts. Contributions on applied topics such as environmental risk analysis and sustainability are welcome as well.
