Deputy Director Meng Xiangli addresses the meeting

Deputy Director Meng Xiangli noted in his address that the Laboratory has made full use of the foundation of Earth system science and the advantages of computer science and technology in Tsinghua, and persevered in the exploration of interdisciplinary integration and independent innovation, having accomplished a series of advanced achievements. It is hoped that the Laboratory can make full use of the high-performance computing platform to produce more high-level achievements and train more high-quality talents in the future.

Prof. Huang Xiaomeng delivers a report

Professor Huang Xiaomeng, Director of the Laboratory, gave a “Work Report of the MOE Key Laboratory for Earth System Modeling”. Professor Huang introduced that the Laboratory has, based on interdisciplinary resources, carried out research around the numerical simulation methods of the Earth system, data integration of geosciences, high-performance supporting technologies and applications, and thus developed distinctive characteristics. In 2023, the Laboratory scored a series of achievements with interdisciplinary characteristics, and also accumulated some practical experience of disciplinary integration and coordinated development. Having become a base for pooling and cultivating global change research talents in China, the Laboratory has contributed to training young talents with interdisciplinary abilities in Earth science, computer science, computational mathematics and economics, and enhancing China's international academic status in this field.

At the annual meeting, the Awarding Ceremony of Tsinghua University-Inspur Group Young Talents Award for Computational Earth Sciences (“Inspur Award”) was held. The Inspur Award, since its inception in 2012, has selected 59 winners so far, who have been working hard in several research fields and have become mainstays of China's Earth system science development. Next, the five winners delivered academic reports based on their respective award-winning research.

On the afternoon of the same day, eight grantees of the Laboratory's 2022 Open Fund made concluding reports of their projects, and six grantees of the 2023 Open Fund made research proposal of their projects. The Open Fund aims at promoting laboratory construction and discipline development, and promoting the research and application of Tsinghua University’s Community Integrated Earth System Model (CIESM). Through close cooperation with scholars from different research fields in many institutions, the Open Fund promotes multidisciplinary integration and sustainable development and application of the Earth System Model.
