The Copernicus Climate Change Service is holding the 5th International Conference on Reanalysis (ICR5) over five days, 13 - 17 November 2017 in Rome, Italy.
ICR5 will provide us the opportunity to review progress and discuss future plans in key areas, including:
- Status of current production systems
- Observation rescue activities
- Developments in observational databases
- Developments in data assimilation
- Applications, user requirements and feedback
- Plans for future reanalyses
Climate research has benefited over the years from the continuing development of reanalysis. As reanalysis datasets become more diverse (atmosphere, ocean and land components), more complete (moving towards Earth-system coupled reanalysis), more detailed, and of longer timespan, community efforts to evaluate and intercompare them become more important.
The conference will bring together reanalysis producers, observation providers, numerical modellers and the user community to review current reanalysis activities and to discuss user needs for future reanalyses.
Through this conference, we aim to assess the merits and review the progress in reanalyses, to monitor climate variations and support policy makers to develop adaptation policies, and to provide complementary information to other climate sources.
The conference will be organized around five main topics: (1) status and plans for future reanalyses, (2) observations for reanalyses, (3) methods for reanalyses, (4) evaluation of reanalyses and (5) applications of reanalyses. Interested contributors are invited to submit an abstract, specifying the topic of the contribution, whether they would prefer an oral or poster presentation, and if they would like to apply to receive travel support.
The programme of the Conference will be available shortly.
The submission of abstracts starts in February 2017, the deadline is 15 May 2017.
Early Bird registration will be available from 15 February 2017 and applicable to registrations received by 1 September 2017. Early Bird fee is 250 EUR and includes coffee, lunch and conference dinner. After 1 September 2017 the registration fee will be 350 EUR.
Accomodation is to be sorted and paid for by individuals.
