EnviroInfo 2023 is the 37th edition of the long-standing and well-established international and interdisciplinary conference series on leading environmental information and communication technologies. Combining and shaping national and international activities in the field of applied informatics and environmental informatics in making the world a better place for living, the EnviroInfo conference series aims at presenting and discussing the latest state-of-the-art development on ICT and environmental related fields.

A special focus on this years’ conference will be the topic “Towards a Sustainable Digital Society”. Therefore, EnviroInfo 2023 welcomes papers that are related to topics like:

  • Green Computing – a complete overview from development and coding to execution and visualization.
  • Sustainable computing, software engineering and digital transformation in general
  • Energy-efficient workloads and energy-aware computing concepts
  • Harmonization of environmental management information systems
  • Shaping our digital society through legal frameworks

However, due to the interdisciplinary character of environmental informatics there is a wide range of topics that were already central to previous conferences and will be still in the heart of the EnviroInfo 2023. Examples include:

  • Earth Observation and Monitoring
  • Environmental Modelling and Simulation
  • Applications of Geographical Information Systems
  • Environmental Information Systems
  • Core and emerging technologies in Environmental Informatics
  • Agent-based simulations in Environmental Informatics
  • Environmental Informatics in Smart Environments: Smart Homes, Buildings, Cities, Communities, Smart Farming
  • Citizen science in Environmental Informatics
  • Disaster risk modelling and assessment, disaster response
  • Environmental sensors and environmental informatics
  • Environmental informatics and the Atmospheric Environment
  • Sustainable transportation and energy systems
  • Managing and mitigating climate change and extreme events
  • Sustainable resource management and circular economy
  • Robotics and reinforcement learning in Environmental Informatics
  • AI Applications
  • Rebound effects of ICT
  • Economizing Nature
  • Societal aspects of Environmental Informatics
  • Environmental Informatics for Developing Countries

Moreover, EnviroInfo 2023 welcomes papers, where ICT technologies or software frameworks are used to reduce the environmental and especially the carbon footprint in their domain and thereby, support the general sustainable digital transformation.

Therefore, one important goal of this year’s conference will be to present an overview of challenges, impediments and moreover approaches on a broad basis across domains to tackle environmental challenges. EnviroInfo 2023 will be organized in Main track and Special Tracks focusing on certain special topics.
