Extended Deadline: April 13th - Polar Prediction Workshop 2018

Amélie Bouchat
Dear colleagues,

We are extending the registration & abstract submission deadline to April 13, 2018 for the Polar Prediction Workshop 2018 (7-8-9 May, Montreal, Canada)

To register and/or submit an abstract, please use this form (no registration fee). More information on the logistics of the event can be found here.

The workshop, funded by MEOPAR, the Canadian Ice Service, and CliC, will focus on:

- polar predictability from subseasonnal to interannual timescales
- sea ice prediction
- operational and research efforts
- end user needs and the capacity of the scientific community to address them

In addition, reviews for the Sea Ice Outlook project and other initiatives related to polar predictions will be discussed.

We also propose a new activity for 2018: a consensus forecast statement synthesizing predictions of (i) September mean Arctic sea ice extent, and (ii) sea ice conditions during the Arctic shipping season for key regions plus the Northwest Passage and Northern Sea Route shipping corridors. 

Participants are invited to contribute to any or all of these forecasts and are encouraged to highlight these predictions in their presentations. More information on how to submit a forecast will be provided soon to interested participants. 

Operational forecasters and forecast users are warmly invited to participate.

Extended deadline for abstract submission: 13 April, 2018.

Looking forward to seeing you in Montreal!
