Fred Roberts, DIMACS
In 2013 13 North American mathematical sciences research institutes (including the DIMACS Center based at Rutgers) launched a year on mathematics and its applications to the problems of the planet called Mathematics of Planet Earth (MPE). That became a world-wide activity with involvement of universities, the private sector, professional societies, etc. We continued this at the DIMACS Center in a program called MPE2013+ that has held or scheduled 23 workshops on a variety of topics. (See http://dimacs.rutgers.edu/archive/SpecialYears/2013_MPE).
This workshop is the culmination of MPE2013+. It includes presentations by many of the leaders of earlier activities in MPE2013+ as by selected experts in topics of the Mathematics of Planet Earth. It will address and raise key questions in the six main themes of MPE2013+: Global Change, Sustainable Human Environments, Natural Disasters, Management of Natural Resources, Data-aware Energy Use, and Education for the Planet Earth of Tomorrow. There will also be a poster session with posters in any of the six theme areas. Some time will be devoted to discussion of where to take the MPE effort next after MPE2013+ ends.
