PALM Model Conference (PMC)

A new conference series will start: the PALM Model Conference (PMC), which will take place every year from now on.

The PALM model system has grown into a complex but powerful modeling system for high-resolution numerical simulations. Currently, the model is transitioning to a community model to guarantee further development, as well as build an accessible, flexible, and robust user community in the future.

The PMC will bring developers and users of the PALM Model system together. The goal is to provide a forum for the PALM model community to discuss and advance model development, validation, data generation, and recent PALM-based research. There will be not only plenary sessions with scientific and technical presentations, but also working group and internal project meetings, and other discussion groups of the community model consortium.

Despite the short-notice invitation, the organisers would like to welcome as many PALM developers, users, and interested people as possible to the PMC 2023, which will take place from 11-12 September, 2023! The conference will be held at the DWD headquarters in Offenbach (Frankfurter Str. 135, Offenbach/Main, Germany).

Conference participants will be able to attend plenary sessions online or in-person.

Schedule is as follows:

  • Plenary Sessions (online and in person): Monday, 11 September, 1 pm – Tuesday, 12 September, 3 pm
  • Constitutional Meeting of the PALM community (in person only): Tuesday, 12 September, 3-5 pm
    • Presentation of the community model structure
    • Appointment of steering committee members, working groups and other leading units
  • PALM steering committee meeting (internal, in person only): Tuesday, 12 September, 5-6 pm
  • URSA-MAJOR meeting (internal, in person and online): Monday, 11 September, 4-6 pm
