Montréal, Canada, 16 to 21 August 2014

Theme: Seamless Prediction of the Earth System: from minutes to months

The Conference is structured around two programs:

• The science program will cover both the basic weather research that extends knowledge of processes and systems and the applied research needed to put prediction systems together and assess the impacts of weather and climate events.

• The user, application & social science program will consider the goods and services economy and the role of government in disaster risk reduction/management and the communication of weather information.
