The conference is the fifth one in a series of meetings previously held in Russia (Suzdal 2007, Pereslavl-Zalessky 2009, Uglich 2011, Kaluga 2013). This series is devoted to application of systems analysis to geophysical observations, data mining and geo-informatics. Hazardous natural phenomena, as well as some man-made hazards, can be detected by different techniques routinely used for monitoring the geophysical parameters. The upcoming conference in Sochi will focus on implementation of Systems Analysis embracing a sophisticated data analysis and holistic Earth science approach in order to get comprehensive information on the phenomena of different degrees of hazard and on the multi-scale extremes. We intend to discuss the topics related to observations, detection of and modeling geophysical extremes; development, implementation and maintenance of methods and instruments for monitoring; evolution of natural systems towards extreme conditions; assessment of global- and local-scale hazardous phenomena; challenges in data processing and analysis using pattern recognition, statistical and other methods relevant to large data processing; applications of geo-databases and GIS.
