EMS2019 in Copenhagen: Call for session proposals
The 2019 Annual Meeting of the European Meteorological Society – European Conference for Applied Meteorology and Climatology – will take place from 9 to 13 September 2019 at the Technical University of Denmark in Lyngby, Copenhagen www.ems2019.eu/venue_and_travel.
Everyone is invited to take an active part in organising the scientific programme of the conference and suggest sessions and conveners based on the present Skeleton Programme:
The public Call-for-Session-Proposals will be open until 20 December 2018. Following this, the Programme and Science Committee members will compile the final session programme as the basis for the Call-for-abstracts.
The Annual Meetings of the EMS aim at fostering cross-fertilisation of ideas, feedback between science and applications, as well as involvement of all the diverse actors in the meteorological and climatological fields. Therefore the session programme will offer many opportunities for collaboration across the entire weather and climate enterprise (public, private, academic, users, and NGOs) to benefit societies in Europe and worldwide.
In addition, a complementary focus of the 2019 Annual Meeting – reflecting the interests and activities of the host institutions – will be on Arctic (and Antarctic) issues and challenges:
The Arctic: the new frontier for weather, ice and climate research, forecasting and services
In the light of the ongoing Arctic amplification, this additional dimension is very timely. It underlines the need to better understand cryosphere-atmosphere-ocean interactions, teleconnections with mid-latitude weather and permafrost behaviour, to be able to support a sustainable socio-economic development of these areas. Despite the long history of Arctic meteorology, the work on understanding these complex interactions make the Arctic an ever evolving scientific frontier.
From early February to 12 April 2019, the entire community will be invited to submit abstracts. This will be announced in a separate email.

We look forward to receiving your suggestions.
