Convection-Permitting Modeling for Climate Research - Current and Future Challenges -

Sep 2 - 4, 2020 | Kyoto, Japan


Scope

The international workshop Convection-Permitting Modeling for Climate Research - Current and Future Challenges - will address scientific and technical challenges related to convection-permitting climate modeling (km-scale horizontal grid spacing). The aim of the three-day meeting is to foster collaborations and synergies to work on this challenging topic as a community. There will be oral and poster sessions, several invited talks on key challenges, and multiple opportunities for discussions and networking.

Key Topics

  • The added value of convection-permitting climate simulations
  • Mechanisms of extreme events by using very high resolution model
  • Event based story line approaches to climate change
  • Asian high resolution modeling research activities
  • Towards global convection-permitting modeling
  • Co-production of climate impact information based on convective permitting models and observations

Venue

The workshop will take place at Kihada Hall (Obaku Plaza), which is located at the Uji Campus of Kyoto University. Uji Campus is 30 minutes away from Kyoto Station by train. Kyoto is sightseeing center of the midwest (Kansai) region and easy to access from all the major cities in Japan.
