The Copernicus Climate Change Service is holding the 5th International Conference on Reanalysis (ICR5) over five days, 13 – 17 November 2017 in Rome, Italy.
ICR5 will provide us the opportunity to review progress and discuss future plans in key areas, including:
Status of current production systems
Observation rescue activities
Developments in observational databases
Developments in data assimilation
Applications, user requirements and feedback
Plans for future reanalyses
Climate research has benefited over the years from the continuing development of reanalysis. As reanalysis datasets become more diverse (atmosphere, ocean and land components), more complete (moving towards Earth-system coupled reanalysis), more detailed, and of longer timespan, community efforts to evaluate and intercompare them become more important.
The conference will bring together reanalysis producers, observation providers, numerical modellers and the user community to review current reanalysis activities and to discuss user needs for future reanalyses.
Through this conference, we aim to assess the merits and review the progress in reanalyses, to monitor climate variations and support policy makers to develop adaptation policies, and to provide complementary information to other climate sources.
The conference will be organized around five main topics: (1) status and plans for future reanalyses, (2) observations for reanalyses, (3) methods for reanalyses, (4) evaluation of reanalyses and (5) applications of reanalyses.
The theme of ECCA 2017 is ‘Our Climate Ready Future’. Our vision is that this conference will inspire and enable people to work together to discover and deliver positive climate adaptation solutions that can strengthen society, revitalise local economies and enhance the environment. We will bring together the people who will deliver action on the ground – from business, industry, NGOs, local government and communities – to share knowledge, ideas and experience with researchers and policymakers. Set in the cultural city of Glasgow, at the heart of a city-region that is putting climate adaptation and climate justice at the core of decision-making, ECCA 2017 offers a unique opportunity to visit many innovative local adaptation projects and share experience of how climate adaptation can work in practice.
ECCA 2017 is held in Europe but the focus will be global. Participants from over 60 countries on five continents have already registered their interest or submitted abstracts, and we expect the presentations and sessions to be fully international in scope.

The homogeneous data series with high quality and the spatial interpolation are indispensable for the climatological and meteorological examinations. The primary goal of this meeting is to promote the discussion about the methodological and theoretical aspects.
