WCAMA 2021 : 12th Workshop of Applied Computing for the Management of the Environment and Natural Resources
Call For Papers
12th Workshop of Applied Computing for the Management of the Environment and Natural Resources
Co-located with XLI Brazilian Computer Society Congress
*** CALL FOR PAPERS ***
The 12th Workshop on Applied Computing for Environmental and Natural Resources Management (WCAMA) aims to promote the effective integration of the computing area (methodologies and tools) with environmental issues (policy and management).
Natural resource management is a complex and dynamic activity and requires the integration between actors in the social, political and technological fields to be effectively developed and implemented.
In this context, we aim to discuss the development of methodologies and tools for the management of the environment and natural resources. More specifically, efforts are made to effectively address: i) management and communication between large volumes of data; ii) the development of techniques for analyzing these data, and iii) optimization, control, and integration of the generated data.
This year, due to the pandemic, the format of the event will be online.
The workshop will cover the whole range of research and applications in methodologies, techniques and computational tools applied to environmental management and natural resources, including (but not limited to):
Control of air pollution
Environmental sanitation and waste treatment
Flooded areas and wetlands
Global environmental changes
Health and environment
Land use and land cover change modeling
Natural and renewable resources management
Noise and environment
Priority areas for conservation
Reduction of gas emissions
Society and environment
Solid waste management
Species distribution modeling
Transport and environment
