19th Cyclone Workshop (Sep. - Oct. 2019)

The 19th Cyclone Workshop (CW) will be held from 29th September to 4th October 2019 at Kloster Seeon near Munich in Germany.

We would like to solicit contributions under the broad theme of “Meditating on the role of cyclones...”

  • in predictability
  • in high-impact weather
  • in the large-scale circulation
  • from the tropics to the poles

In addition, the selection of workshop topics will be determined by the interests of the participants. As with past CWs, we strongly encourage participation from the operational forecasting community.

Afternoon recreation breaks, at least one poster session, and special evening sessions will be scheduled. Proposed topics include: the 101st anniversary of the Bergen School, ensemble visualization of cyclones, and machine learning. Any suggestions regarding either the topics or the format of the evening sessions are welcome and should be sent to the Organization or Science Committee members.

Approximate total cost for the workshop, including accommodations (five nights), all meals, and registration fee, will be 650€–800€, per person, for double and single occupancy, respectively. Hotel reservations will be centrally handled by the Organization Committee. Further information and exact pricing for 2019 will be announced soon.

It is possible to offer support for early career scientists travelling overseas. To apply for support, please send your CV, estimated travel costs, and a letter of interest stating your motivation to participate in one PDF file along with your abstract submission. The amount of travel support will be up to 700€. Criteria for selection will be based on scientific quality and the letter of interest. The committee will strive to balance travel awards between working groups and institutions. Decisions on travel support will be made by 15th May 2019.

Please email your abstract to Kristen Corbosiero (kcorbosiero@albany.edu) by 15th April 2019. Participants will be notified of the CW19 schedule by 1st June 2019.
