Abstract: 

A new area of computer science has been developing over the last 8 years known as Computational Sustainability. It seeks to apply the tools of computer science to solve problems in biological, social, and economic sustainability of the planet. I will describe three projects at Oregon State that we have been pursuing: (a) modeling bird migration, (b) optimizing the management of invasive species, and (c) optimizing the management of wildfire in Eastern Oregon.
