Workshop on "Mathematics of Climate Change, Related Natural Hazards and Risks"
The workshop on “Mathematics of Climate Change, Related Natural Hazards and Risks” was held at CIMAT in Guanajuato, Mexico, 29 July - 2 August 2013. The workshop brought together about 40 young researchers, mainly from Latin America and the Caribbean and a dozen distinguished scientists, each of which gave several lectures on a chosen topic. The workshop was part of the world initiative “Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013”. It was jointly organized by the International Mathematical Union (IMU), the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (IUTAM), and the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). It was sponsored by the International Council of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) and partly funded by a grant from the International Council for Science (ICSU). It was supported by the ICSU Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean (ROLAC), the Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR), the World Climate Research Program (WCRP), the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, and the Academia Mexicana de Ciencias, and CIMAT (Centro de Investigación en Matemáticas). The members of the Scientific Committee were Susan Friedlander (IMU), Ilya Zaliapin (IUGG) and Paul F. Linden (IUTAM). More details are available on the workshop's website.
