14th International Meeting on Statistical Climatology
The meetings on Statistical Climatology, which have been held roughly every three years since 1979, are organized by independent statisticians, climatologists and atmospheric scientists. They facilitate communication between the climate and statistics communities and promote good statistical practice in climate and atmospheric science (see http://imsc.pacificclimate.org/).
Abstract submission is now open. The deadline for abstract submission is February 20, 2019.
The list of sessions is provided below* and further information can be found on the conference website: http://www.meteo.fr/cic/meetings/2019/IMSC
Registration will open soon; the registration fee is not frozen at this stage but should be around 400€ (300€ for early-bird before mid-April). It will include lunches, coffee breaks, a conference dinner and public transportation in Toulouse.
Please feel free to disseminate this announcement and/or contact the local organizing committee at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
* Contributions are welcome on the following sessions:
1. Climate records: data homogenization, dataset creation, and uncertainty
2. Paleoclimate: proxy reconstructions and analysis of past changes
3. Statistical issues working with large datasets and model outputs
4. Space-time statistics for modeling and analyzing climate variability
5. Weather/climate predictability and forecast evaluation
6. Statistics for climate models, ensemble design, uncertainty
quantification, model tuning
7. Statistical and machine learning in climate science
8. Long-term D&A and emergent constraints on future climate projections
9. Attribution and analysis of single weather events
10. Changes in extreme events and climate variability
11. Extreme value analysis for climate applications
12. From global change to regional impacts, downscaling and bias correction
13. Interactions of weather and climate with human and natural systems
14. Other topics of statistical climatology
