Symposium on Data-Driven Approaches to Droughts (DDAD2011)


  Symposium on Data-Driven Approaches to Droughts (DDAD2011)

Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana 21 – 22 june 2011


This symposium is sponsored by the National Science Foundation through the Office of Cyberinfrastructure and the Hydrological Sciences Division, and is in partnership with EWRI (Environmental & Water Resources Institute of ASCE) and US Department of Agriculture - National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA-NIFA).


A diverse team of researchers, including the DRINET (Drought Research Institute Network) project team, will host a symposium focusing on data-driven approaches for characterizing, understanding and modeling droughts. The symposium will feature invited speakers from various scientific domains, industry and other national scale data related projects, as well as poster presentations and panel discussions.


This symposium will serve as a forum for researchers and stakeholders to interact and exchange current and emerging techniques for drought characterization, along with methods for local and regional data collection, compilation, and format standardization. This symposium will attract studies that demonstrate how the new knowledge base created from the cyberinfrastructure for data collection, when combined with visualization techniques, leads to improved understanding and practical applications. It will feature keynote speakers, a series of presentations, posters, and panel discussions.
