GEWEX Convection-Permitting Climate Modeling Workshop II

September 4, 2018 to September 6, 2018 | NCAR Mesa Lab | Boulder, Colorado

Event - CPCM

NCAR Mesa Lab | Boulder, Colorado

The 2nd GEWEX Convection-Permitting Climate Modeling Workshop will focus on scientific and technical challenges related to convection-permitting climate modeling (horizontal grid spacing ≤4 km). These challenges include the model setup, observational datasets, evaluation techniques, computational resources, model intercomparisons, and the use of convection-permitting simulations in impact research. The 3-day meeting's aim is to foster collaborations and synergies to work on this challenging topic as a community. There will be oral and poster sessions, several invited talks on key topics, and multiple opportunities for discussions and networking.

Applications Open through May 31, 2018.

Participants will be notified in early June.

Key Topics:

  • Convection-permitting modeling and the water cycle
  • Modeling of tropical phenomena
  • Analysis of convection-permitting climate & weather simulations
  • Model setup in convection-permitting simulations
  • Observational datasets and advanced evaluation techniques
  • Convection-permitting modeling across scales (S2S)

Oral Presentations:

Please upload your presentation in the meeting room latest in the break before your session and identify yourself to the chair of the session. We strongly recommend oral presenters to use the PCs available in the meeting rooms and to upload their presentation well before the start of the session using a USB flash drive. Please ensure that your file (PowerPoint or PDF titled with session and name of presenter) is being uploaded correctly and that the slides are displayed properly. Oral presentations are 20 minutes long (including 5 minutes of discussion). Invited presentations are 30 minutes long ( including 5 minutes of discussion).

Poster Presentations:

Posters should be put up in the morning of the corresponding poster session and taken off at the end of the day after the poster session. Authors should be in attendance during their poster session and are expected to stand next to their poster in order to answer questions. Poster areas will be equipped with poster boards and material to hang your poster. The poster boards have a size of 4' wide by 6' high (122 cm times 183 cm). No local poster printing service will be available during the conference.
