Eumetcal Workshop 2016

Eumetcal Workshop 2016

10 – 13 Oct 2016 / Langen

The XI Eumetcal Workshop is an appointment trainers and learners in meteorology cannot miss. This year it will be held in Langen, Germany, from 10-13 October 2016, and kindly hosted by Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD).

The title of the workshop is Developing communication capabilities for meteorological and climate services.

As the title suggests, this year we will be focusing on a largely unexplored topic within the meteorological community: how communication capabilities of weather and climate services are changing and how to make sure the training we provide meets the changing requirements.

The choice of this topic was motivated by the fact that national weather and climate services across Europe are moving towards providing impact-based weather and climate services. This requires a change in emphasis in the way services are implemented and in customer/meteorological service communication. In addition, the operational competencies adopted at the last WMO Congress all address communication.

The deadline for registration is 2 September. The deadline for submission of abstracts/proposals is 25 August. Links to registration and proposal submission forms, additional details and information are available on the workshop site.
