Claudio Rossi, researcher of the Data Science For Industrial & Societal Applications Area, is participating in the biennial European Climate Change Adaptation (ECCA) conference (https://www.ecca2019.eu/), which takes place in Lisbon (Portugal) from May 28th to 31st.
Climate change is considered by many to be the challenge of the 21st century: the urgency and severity of this challenge call for integrated ways of looking at responses to reduce the risks associated with environmental and social stressors and ensure a secure future for humans and ecosystems.
Adapting to climate change requires a coordinated and synergistic approach from a diverse range of actors across sectors, as well as questioning assumptions about the drivers of risk, vulnerability and environmental change.
This 4th ECCA Conference aims to:
- Provide a space that facilitates a dialogue among a diverse range of actors from academia, government, business and community on the multiple aspects of climate change adaptation
- Promote the communication and knowledge exchange between researchers, policymakers and practitioners
- Find integrated solutions and inspire action
- Support ongoing efforts to enhance the coherence and synergy between CCA and DRR research, policy and practice
- Discuss key challenges and solutions in cities
- Provide a stage for presenting European’s excellence on Research & Innovation for CCA
- Inform the next European funding framework for Research & Innovation
Claudio Rossi will perform, during this event, the following activities:
- On May 28th, at 19:00, he will present the poster “Early detection and information extraction for weather-induced floods using social media streams” (https://www.ecca2019.eu/early-detection-and-information-extraction-for-weather-induced-floods-using-social-media-streams/), about an automated set of services that start from the availability of weather forecasts, including both an event detection technique and a selective information retrieval from online social media.
- He is speaker, together with a key DG-HOME officer (Quevauviller, Philippe firstname.lastname@example.org) and the coordinators of ANYWHWERE (http://anywhere-h2020.eu/) and beAWARE (https://beaware-project.eu/), in the session “Science in support of EU Disaster Risk Reduction policies in the area of weather and climate extreme events”. https://www.ecca2019.eu/science-in-support-of-eu-disaster-risk-reduction-policies-in-the-area-of-weather-and-climate-extreme-events/
- On May 29th, at 16:15, he will also perform an I-REACT demo at the conference tool shed. (https://www.ecca2019.eu/improving-resilience-through-advanced-cybertechnologies/)
