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

Scope

Addressing 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.
