EnKF Workshop 2021


The International EnKF Workshop 2021
June 07-09, 2021
Online event

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 2021 is arranged by NORCE Energy in collaboration with the Nansen Center (NERSC) and Equinor.  Due to the pandemic situation, the workshop will take place as an online event.

Invited speakers:
Alberto Carrassi, University of Reading, UK. "Data assimilation in chaotic systems: from dynamically-based to data-driven approaches"
Sarah Dance, University of Reading, UK. "Observation uncertainty in data assimilation"
Moha Gharamti, UCAR, USA. "Data assimilation in hydrology and streamflow forecasting"
Elias D. Niño-Ruiz, Universidad del Norte, Colombia. "Ensemble based data assimilation via a modified Cholesky decomposition"
Markus F. Dregi, Equinor, Norway. "Ensemble based reservoir management for the people"

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

Call for abstract: Deadline Februrary 28, 2021
We welcome abstracts on both new developments and applications of data assimilation 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 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).
