Workshop Proceedings

Although some Division-sponsored activities like workshops do not result in consensus reports, discussions at workshops and other events are often published in workshop summaries, websites, newsletters, and other formats to preserve and make publicly accessible the information or discussions from the event.

Opportunities from the Integration of Simulation Science and Data Science: Proceedings of a Workshop (2018)

Convergence has been a key topic of discussion about the future of cyberinfrastructure for science and engineering research. Convergence refers both to the combined use of simulation and data-centric techniques in science and engineering research and the possibilities for a single type of cyberinfrastructure to support both techniques. The National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine convened a Workshop on Converging Simulation an... More >>

Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage Approaches for Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration: Proceedings of a Workshop -- in Brief (2018)

Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) is a technology that integrates biomass conversion to heat, electricity, or liquid or gas fuels with carbon capture and sequestration. BECCS could provide a significant portion of the global energy supply if deployed to its theoretical maximum feasible amount. The future role of BECCS is a subject that divides researchers as estimates of potential future biomass supply vary widely due t... More >>

Understanding Pathways to a Paradigm Shift in Toxicity Testing and Decision-Making: Proceedings of a Workshop -- in Brief (2018)

Workshop Presentations and Video Advances in the environmental health sciences -- from high-throughput cell-based in vitro studies to tissue chips to environment-wide association studies -- have led to new approaches for understanding the toxicity of chemicals in humans. These new approaches are faster, less expensive, and potentially more comparable to real-life human exposures than legacy animal toxicity testing approaches. However, man... More >>

The Promise of Genome Editing Tools to Advance Environmental Health Research: Proceedings of a Workshop -- in Brief (2018)

Workshop Presentations and Video This January 2018 workshop brought together experts in molecular biology, toxicology, and public health to explore opportunities for using genome (and epigenome) editing technologies in environmental health research. Participants discussed genome editing tools such as CRISPR/Cas9 and their applications to help unravel the mechanisms through which environmental stressors affect human health, including developin...

Informing Environmental Health Decisions Through Data Integration: Proceedings of a Workshop -- in Brief (2018)

Workshop Presentations and Video Integrating large quantities of data from multiple, disparate sources can create new opportunities to understand complex environmental health questions. However, combining new types and larger quantities of data to inform a specific decision presents many new challenges. For example, investigators must develop methods to reliably integrate data from designed experiments with data re-purposed from other uses, suc... More >>
