The conference is the fifth one in a series of meetings previously held in Russia (Suzdal 2007, Pereslavl-Zalessky 2009, Uglich 2011, Kaluga 2013). This series is devoted to application of systems analysis to geophysical observations, data mining and geo-informatics. Hazardous natural phenomena, as well as some man-made hazards, can be detected by different techniques routinely used for monitoring the geophysical parameters. The upcoming conference in Sochi will focus on implementation of Systems Analysis embracing a sophisticated data analysis and holistic Earth science approach in order to get comprehensive information on the phenomena of different degrees of hazard and on the multi-scale extremes.
We intend to discuss the topics related to observations, detection of and modeling geophysical extremes; development, implementation and maintenance of methods and instruments for monitoring; evolution of natural systems towards extreme conditions; assessment of global- and local-scale hazardous phenomena; challenges in data processing and analysis using pattern recognition, statistical and other methods relevant to large data processing; applications of geo-databases and GIS.
The Great Debate event is a panel discussion which would become an outstanding and focal event of the International Conference “Data Intensive System Analysis for Geohazard Studies” due to the great scientific and data experience of the panelists. During the panel discussion, titled "What scientific and technological data and their Systems Analysis will be in the 21st century?", the prominent leaders of the international scientific organizations and distinguished scientists will try to foresight the most significant trends of the 21st century in Systems Analysis development, Data Science, geoobservations and other important disciplines. The Great Debate will take place on 20 July, 2016.
