ISESS, the International Symposium on Environmental Software Systems, was initiated in 1995 as a forum to present and discuss research fundamentals and state-of-the-art applications in environmental informatics. Over the years, it has also evolved into an important networking event for academics and industry experts, specializing in software engineering, data science and environmental sciences.

The 13th International Symposium on Environmental Software Systems (ISESS’2020) theme is Data Science in Action, and aims to serve as a forum to present primary research in data science research and applications in the in the social, environmental and green life sciences.

ISESS 2020 is organised by the Wageningen Data Competence Centre and will be hosted at Wageningen University & Research campus, in Wageningen, Netherlands.


ISESS brings together researchers dealing with environmental challenges and trying to provide solutions using forward-looking and leading-edge IT technology. The conference connects acadamia and industry to overcome a manifold of technology changes and dynamics by using their best knowledge to improve our environment, and therefore the well-being of our society.

ISESS is a conference series organized on behalf of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP), Working Group 5.11 “Computers and Environment”. Previous editions of the conference have been held in Zadar, Croatia (ISESS’2017), Melbourne, Australia (ISESS’2015), and Neusiedl am See, Austria (ISESS’2013).

Since 2011, the Symposium Proceedings have been published as Springer books, under the IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology (AICT) series, and are available online. Check out the ISESS 2017 proceedings at Springer.

Springer reported approximately 100.000 articles downloads of our proceedings series. In addition, enviromatics.org contains a complete record of all ISESS proceedings since 1995.
