Joint IBA MU and RECETOX work awarded at ISESS 2013

The 10th year of the traditional symposium on environmental informatics ISESS 2013 was held on 9-11 October 2013 in Neusiedl am See (Austria). Masaryk University contributed significantly to the organization of the conference and to the conference programme as well, particularly with contributions dealing with the information systems GENASIS (Global Environmental Assessment Information System) and GMP DWH (Global Monitoring Plan Data Warehouse).


No less than five presentations on the processing of global environmental data, their analysis and public presentation by means of modern web technologies were held in the „Information Tools for Global Environmental Assessment“ section. The acclaim of this work was documented, among others, by two awards for the best paper (L. Dušek et al.: Estimating Impacts of Environmental Interventions in Monitoring Programs Requires Conceptual Data Models and Robust Statistical Processing) and the best student paper (R. Hůlek et al.: GENASIS System Architecture on the Way from Environmental Data Repository towards a Research Infrastructure).

Additionally to GENASIS and GMP DWH, other topics falling into the scope of IBA MU’s research activities were introduced: a system for the visualization of cancer epidemiology data (SVOD), and a general survey of methods, technologies and available tools used for the visualization of environmental data.

The conference proceedings have been published under the title „Environmental Software Systems: Fostering Information Sharing“ by Springer within the frame of the book series „IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology“. The book is available in both printed and online form.
