Workshop on AI for Ocean, Atmosphere and Climate Dynamics

This workshop is co-organized in the framework of EUR Isblue (Interdisciplinary Graduate School for the Blue Planet, Brest), LEFE/MANU project IA-OAC and ANR project Melody (PI: R. Fablet, IMT Atlantique) and involves research teams from 9 laboratories at national level (Lab-STICC, LIP6, LOPS, CERFACS, LSCE, LATMOS, IGE, INRIA Rennes, INRIA Grenoble) with a strong interest for the development of AI for Ocean-Atmosphere-Climate Science. Broadly speaking, the availability of large amounts of simulation and observation data and the emergence of artificial intelligence technologies (big data architectures, GPUs, prolific learning) open up new opportunities to explore open questions in ocean, atmospheric and climate sciences through a data-centric paradigm, rather than a "classical" physical paradigm, one of the central scientific challenges being precisely the ability to unify these two paradigms. The workshop aims to explore, review, discuss and advance these challenges.

The program will combine keynotes (see below invited speakers) and working groups. Any participant will have the opportunity to propose a theme for a working group during an initial open forum session. Two types of working groups will be encouraged: data-challenge-like groups and more prospective working groups investigating AI-based formulations for ocean/atmosphere/climate challenges.
