In recent years, Environmental Informatics has emerged as a new interdisciplinary research field that can facilitate decisions regarding social, economic, ecological, and environmental goals based on a variety of information technology measures. This Doctoral College program aims to utilize the interdisciplinary potential to promote the objectives of Environmental Informatics in one of the research focus points of the Vienna University of Technology, “Energy and Environment”.
The enabling technologies in the college will cover:
Information semantics, management and integration: data modeling, data integration, data collection, and distributed data management for environmental information.
Visual analytics: data visualization, visual data analytics and collaborative working environments for solving environmental problems.
Algorithmic modeling, simulation, optimization: algorithms, parallel processing, and distributed computing techniques for environmental analysis applications.
Large-scale data and compute-intensive systems: distributed systems, cloud computing architecture and provisioning models, large-scale data processing techniques for environmental solutions.
Governance and decision support: risk management, data compliance, and business process techniques for environmental analysis and decision making.
