NOAA’s 15th Annual Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW



CPASW C
ALL FOR ABSTRACTS (submit by January 31, 2017)
May 2-4, 2017
Anchorage, AK
https://accap.uaf.edu/cpasw

Integrated theme: "Understanding Extreme Events and Decision-Maker Needs in the Context of Climate Variability and Change"

The 15th Annual Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW) will bring together a diverse group of climate researchers, service producers, decision-makers, and other users to accelerate developments in the research and applications of climate information for societal decision-making. The 2017 CPASW will be hosted by the NOAA National Weather Service Climate Services Branch, the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) located at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and other climate services partners. 

The 15th Annual CPASW will convene in Anchorage, Alaska, May 2-4, 2017, with a workshop theme of “Understanding Extreme Events and Decision-Maker Needs in the Context of Climate Variability and Change.” The workshop will address the following focus areas: 
  • Climate information applications at local, regional, and global scales related to preparedness and management for weather and climate extremes
  • Climate services for coastal and indigenous communities in high-latitude areas, including the Arctic
  • Best practices of observing, documenting, and communicating climate information relevant for national, tribal, and international collaborations
  • Service delivery coordination and decision support for planning, resource allocation, sustainable development, and environmental management needed for building resilient communities
  • Changes in climate and weather extremes
Short-term climate variability and long-term climate change as well as attribution science are cross-cutting concerns for all of these focus areas, especially in preparedness activities for extreme events and supporting critical decision-making for several socio-economic sectors. We invite abstracts that address the use of climate data and products including monitoring, predictions, and projections in all of the focus areas listed above, particularly for extreme events. We also invite papers highlighting best practices in the areas of communication and outreach, decision support tools, and preparedness methods for advancing societal adaptation. The target audience for this workshop includes planners, managers, practitioners, researchers, service providers, and tribal environmental coordinators and leaders dealing with climate-related challenges. 

Abstract deadline is January 13th, 2017. The meeting format will include a combination of symposia, panel sessions, discussions, and keynote speakers that address the workshop theme. For more details and submission of abstracts, please refer to the 2017 CPASW site* at: https://accap.uaf.edu/cpasw 

*You'll need to create an accoun

Registration will be available after March 1st, 2017

Lodging and other logistics will be posted to the workshop website as they become available - there is a room block at the Captain Cook.  Information will be up shortly.
