The themes of the conference will aim to provide a forum for mathematics and statistics applied to weather and climate science, and will include:

- The development of novel methodologies to paleoclimates;
- Planetary system modelling;
- Weather and climate forecasting, and;
- Coupled social-environmental systems.

Plenary Speakers Include:

- Hayley Fowler, Newcastle University
- Klaus Freadrich, University of Hamburg
- Rachel Kuske, University of British Columbia
- Nathan Mayne, University of Exeter
- Sofia Olhede, University College London
- Andrew Stuart, University of Warwick
- Geoff Vallis, University of Exeter.

Call for Abstracts:

Oral Presentation Abstracts - Deadline 30th April 2016

Poster Presentation Abstracts - Deadline 31st May 2016

Participants are invited to submit abstracts for talks related to the conference themes. Please ensure that both oral and poster abstracts are a maximum of 500 words, and if any special characters are to be included, please use LaTeX.

This year we will be running a "Best student poster competition", which will be judged by the Conference Scientific Committee and the winner annouced on Friday 8th July towards the close of the Conference.

All abstracts should be e-mailed to Emma Clarke ([log in to unmask]), clearly indicating your preference for an oral presentation or a poster.

Numbers to the rescue: can maths save the planet? (Back to Top)

18th May 2016. 18:00 - 19:00. Room G34, Sir Alexander Fleming Building, Imperial College London.

The Grantham Institute and the Mathematics of Planet Earth Centre for Doctoral Training invite members of the business community to attend a panel discussion at Imperial College London where experts will discuss how mathematics can combat environmental problems, and their impact on society and business.

The panel discussion will be chaired by Imperial's Professor Sir Brian Hoskins, an esteemed meteorologist and member of the UK Committee on Climate Change. Following the discussion, we would like to offer you the opportunity to meet our academics and PhD students, and see examples of what our research in climate modelling, uncertainty, data assimilation and computational science can do for you.


• Prof Alan Thorpe, former Director General, European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) and former Chief Executive of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)
• Prof Alastair Forbes, Fellow, National Physical Laboratory (NPL) Mathematics and Modelling Group
• Paul Febvre, Chief Technology Officer, Satellite Applications Catapult
• Dr Erik van Sebille, Lecturer in Oceanography and Climate Change, Grantham Institute
• Dr René Aid, Deputy Head, Optimization, Simulation, Risks and Statistics for the energy markets department (OSIRIS), EDF

The lecture will be followed by networking and a research exhibition.
Please register by 16 May. If you are unable to attend, you may transfer your invitation to a colleague.
Should you have any enquiries, please email Chloe Stockford ([log in to unmask]).


3rd International Workshop Nonlinear Processes in Oceanic and Atmospheric Flows (Back to Top)

6-8 July 2016. Madrid, Spain.

Extended deadline for abstract submission for oral presentations: May 5, 2016

Other Important Deadlines

- Abstract submission for posters: 30 May, 2016
- Early Registration: 5 May, 2016
- Application for grant accommodation (extended): 5 May 2016.
- Deadline for submission of abstracts for poster communications: 30 May 2016

It is a pleasure for us to announce the 3rd Edition of the Workshop on Nonlinear Processes in Oceanic and Atmospheric Flows, to be held at the Instituto de Ciencias Matematicas (ICMAT) from 6 to 8 July 2016.
The Instituto de Ciencias Matematicas (ICMAT) ( is placed at Campus Cantoblanco UAM, 15 km up to the North of downtown Madrid. This workshop will allow cross-disciplinary interaction among mathematicians, physicists, oceanographers and atmospheric scientists in a wide sense. We intend to build on the momentum and interest resulting from the first and second meetings on this topic held in 2008 at Castro Urdiales, Spain and in 2012 at Madrid.

Topics to be addressed are both theoretical and observational: Lagrangian structures in aperiodic flows, coherent mesoscale structures in the atmosphere and the ocean: jets and eddies, vortices. Advances in nonlinear techniques applied to ocean and atmospheric data and gliders, characterization and measurement of ocean mixing and connectivity and their interaction with biological processes, instabilities in geophysical flows. Numerical modeling of ocean (including the Arctic) and atmospheric flows and the assessment of their predictive capacity.

Invited Speakers:

E. Alvarez-Fanjul (Puertos del Estado)
J. Ballabrera (ICM, CSIC)
M. Cencini (ISC, CNR)
A. Gonzalez Ramos (U. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria)
J. Isern-Fontanet (ICM, CSIC)

Summer school and Workshop on Critical Transitions in Denmark (Back to Top)

Aug 28-Sep 9 (Summer school) and Sep 4-9 (Workshop) 2016. Kulhuse, Denmark.

We invite you to participate in the 1st CRITICS Workshop on Critical Transitions in Complex Systems: Mathematical theory and applications held in Kulhuse, Denmark. The workshop is arranged by the ITN network CRITICS bringing together scientists in mathematics and applications on progressing the understanding of critical transitions in complex systems ranging from ecology and climate to economic theory.

PhD students and young researchers are invited to participate in the Summer School, which will commence one week ahead of the workshop with lectures and project work. The second week of the summer school coincides with the CRITICS workshop.

The deadline for submission of abstracts to the workshop and registration for the summer school is 30th April 2016.

Best regards,

The Organizing Committee

Peter Ditlevsen (U. Copenhagen)
Jeroen Lamb (Imperial College London)
Jan Sieber (U. Exeter)
