Scope In the last decade, large-scale information platforms, such as the international Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS, 2015 to 2015) and the Japan's Data Integration and Analysis System (DIAS, 2006 to present), have been developed to integrate "big data" from earth observation systems in pursuit of the data interoperation in the fields of global environmental studies. However, the "bulk" of scientific data in the global environmental studies are quite diverse and even unstructured in some cases, because the studies deal with a wide variety of analytical scales (local events to global trends) and disciplines (natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities). Therefore, it is still difficult to analyze such data in an integrated way. In 2015, Future Earth, an integrative research program that promotes the global studies to discover and provide new environmental knowledge for the sustainable development of global societies in the future, with stakeholders from different backgrounds, will be launched. In association with this program, this session discusses how to overcome the above-mentioned difficulties to collate environmental knowledge from diverse fields of research by reviewing practical applications of information processing technologies for the holistic research on the global environments, from a multidisciplinary viewpoint. We warmly invite a wide range of papers associated with (but not limited to) this topic.
