The 2017 Climate Informatics Workshop is accepting short papers (up to 3 pages) until Saturday, July 22. The workshop will be held at the Mesa Lab from September 20-22. It is a cross-disciplinary gathering between researchers from statistics, machine learning and data mining and researchers in climate science.  Because climate models and observed datasets are increasing in complexity and volume, and because the nature of our changing climate is an urgent area of discovery, there are many opportunities for such partnerships.

Climate informatics broadly refers to any research combining climate science with approaches from statistics, machine learning and data mining. The Climate Informatics workshop series, now in its fifth year, seeks to bring together researchers from all of these areas. We aim to stimulate the discussion of new ideas, foster new collaborations, grow the climate informatics community, and thus accelerate discovery across disciplinary boundaries. The format of the workshop seeks to overcome cross-disciplinary language barriers and to emphasize communication between participants by featuring tutorials, invited talks, panel discussions, posters and break-out sessions. 

There will also be a hackathon on the first day of the workshop in which participants will gain hands-on experience in applying machine learning tools to a very relevant seasonal forecasting prediction problem.
