Workshop Goals

The USEPA convened this workshop to establish and initiate a community of practice for integrated modeling science and technology. The workshop served to survey modelers within and outside EPA to:

  • Identify current and emerging practices and approaches to model integration and interoperability
  • Identify and prioritize the technical challenges related to model and modeling framework interoperability and determine what is required to address these issues
  • Identify the existing groups and initiatives that are tackling similar issues and determine the gaps
  • Determine the role/ mission of the community of practice on integrated environmental modeling science and technology
  • Define initial projects for community participation
