This free international conference will explore how new information technologies can be best used in the environmental sector to address some of society’s greatest future challenges.

The conference will focus on three primary questions.

  • How can advances in IT help to solve or ameliorate major environmental issues?
  • What are the practical barriers hindering and the opportunities to encourage integration between IT, research and user communities?
  • What approaches, individuals and institutions appear to constitute the cutting edge of this IT/environment integration?

Attendance is free but early registration is recommended as numbers are restricted.

This conference is being organised by the NERC-funded Environmental Virtual Observatory (EVO) pilot project; of which the James Hutton Institute is a partner; with the support of five diverse and influential learned societies (British Ecological Society, British Hydrological Society, Royal Geographical Society, Royal Meteorological Society and The British Society of Soil Science).

The list of speakers and information on how to register can be found in the flyer below.

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
