Environmental data and applications have some peculiar Antonino Marvuglia – Cork Constraint Computation Centre
features that make them distinct from typical applications of (4C), University College Cork
other areas of applied computer science. During recent years,
this has led to the development of Environmental Informatics
or Enviromatics (Environmental Information and Decision Mikhail Kanevski – Institute of Geomatics and Analysis of
Support Systems). It is a novel field of Applied Informatics Risk (IGAR), University of Lausanne
which studies specific problems involving the application of S4 ENVISA 2010
computer science techniques to environmental problems. The
