Description

Several interdisciplinary scientific disciplines have been established in the past30 years focussing on the computer science, mathematical and statistical aspects ofenvironmental protection issues. An important society in this respect is the InternationalEnvironmental Modelling and Software Society iEMSs who is organizing this conference.However, iEMSs will not be treated in this paper. Other disciplines concerning theevaluation of environmental and chemical data are: Environmental Informatics,Environmetrics as well as Chemoinformatics and Chemometrics. The aim of the research ofthese societies is to get more information out of the data and to arrive at some kind ofdecision support to improve the status of the environment. The introduced disciplines haveall a different history, focus, grade of internationalisation and background of members. Thispaper aims at informing the members of the societies and interested working groups in thescientific vicinity as well as those generally interested in environmentally-related scientificdisciplines.
