AODS 2018

Algorithms and Applied Optimization for Environmental Data Science (AODS 2018)

The Workshop AODS 2018 will take place in Kalamata, Greece, June 10-15, 2018.

AODS will thus focus on the following research issues around the tools and ideas in the Environmental Data Scientist’s toolbox, including but not limited to:

  • Mechanisms for data clearing and make data tidy (to speed downstream data analysis tasks), by optimizing the process of data gathering.
  • Exploratory data analysis, to support the development of complex statistical models, or to eliminate or sharpen potential hypotheses about the world that can be addressed by the data.
  • Concepts and tools behind reporting modern data analyses in a reproducible manner.
  • Statistical inference tools, mechanisms and methods, including statistical modelling, data oriented strategies and use of designs and randomization in analyses, and others.
  • Linear models, including model selection and uses of models.
  • Prediction and machine learning, including building and applying prediction functions with an emphasis on practical applications.
  • Data products to automate complex analysis tasks or use technology to expand the utility of a data informed model, algorithm or inference.
  • Practical approaches to deal with data protection and data access models.
