Workshop D9. The Community for Integrated Modeling (CIEM): Current Status and future direction
Laniak, G. AND G. Whelan. Workshop D9. The Community for Integrated Modeling (CIEM): Current Status and future direction. Presented at iEMSs 2012 Workshop, Leipzig, GERMANY, July 01 - 05, 2012.
At the 2010 iEMSs conference a workshop entitled "Web Portal for the Community for Integrated Environmental Modelling" was presented. The goals of the workshop were to introduce the CIEM web-portal (iemHUB.org) to the wider modelling community, obtain feedback and comments, and encourage its use as a key resource for sharing knowledge and technologies related to IEM. Since the Ottawa conference both the CIEM and the web-portal have progressed in important ways, including the convening of an international summit for integrated environmental modelling and advancements to the appearance and functionality of the web portal. As a community of communities the CIEM shares interests, goals, and activities with many other communities of practice (e.g., iEMSs, CSDMS, CUASHI, ISCMEM), each of which has a focus on a topic of particular relevance to IEM. Several important interactions with these communities have taken place. The goals of this workshop are to: Review the latest developments of the CIEM, other closely related communities, and the iemHUB web portal Discuss and compile specific goals and activities to further increase the awareness and value of CIEM and Discuss how CIEM and other related communities can further coordinate and collaborate to strengthen the overall value and use of IEM. Related to these goals the following key questions will be discussed: How can the CIEM better facilitate the exchange of IEM science and technology across the international community? What formal/informal relationships between CIEM and other communities should be pursued (e.g., discipline specific communities)? How can the iemHUB web-portal better serve the needs of the community? What social and technical issues related to IEM should CIEM address and what outcomes would be desired?
