EnKF Workshop 2022

Kviknes Hotel, Balestrand, Sognefjorden (https://www.kviknes.no/)

The International EnKF Workshop 2022
30 May, Monday - 02 June, Thursday, 2022
Kviknes Hotel, Balestrand, Norway.


The use of ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) for data assimilation

The ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) and its many variants have been proven effective for data assimilation in large models, including those in atmospheric, oceanic, hydrologic, and petroleum reservoir systems. By bringing together technical experts, practitioners, researchers and students for presentations and informal interchange of information, we aim to share research results and suggest important challenges that have yet to be addressed.

EnKF Workshop 2022 is arranged by NORCE Energy and Technology in collaboration with the Nansen Center (NERSC) and Equinor. 


Invited speakers

  • Berent Anund Stromnes Lunde and Feda Curic, Equinor, Norway. "Graphical sparse precision matrix estimation and the ensemble information filter"
  • Femke Vossepoel, TUDelft, The Netherlands. "On state and parameter estimation in earthquake cycle models"
  • Matthew Levine, Caltech, USA. "A Framework for Machine Learning of Model Error in Dynamical Systems"
  • Yue (Michael) Ying, NERSC, Norway. "Multiscale alignment ensemble filtering technique and its application in geoscience"
  • Yuqing Chang, NORCE, Norway. "Application of Ensemble-Based Methods in Reservoir Management Decision Support"

Scientific committee

Xiaodong Luo (xluo@norceresearch.no), Geir Evensen (geev@norceresearch.no), Dean Oliver (dean.oliver@norceresearch.no), NORCE Energy and Technology, Laurent Bertino (Laurent.Bertino@nersc.no), NERSC, Remus Hanea (rhane@equinor.com), Equinor and University of Stavanger (UiS).


Call for abstract: Deadline Februrary 15, 2022

We welcome abstracts on both new developments and applications of data assimilation and optimization algorithms, including but not limited to, ensemble-based methods and other Bayesian and/or nonlinear approaches. Abstracts on applications are encouraged to discuss limitations and suggest further developments of the assimilation and/or optimization methods. The accepted abstracts will be scheduled for either oral presentation or poster presentation. This workshop does not publish full papers, so submission of full paper is not required. 

To facilitate the workshop organization, we encourage our participants to submit abstracts with full information of all authors (e.g., name, affiliation, etc.). About one page must be e-mailed to Xiaodong Luo (xluo@norceresearch.no).
