October 17 - 21, 2016
We are inviting you to participate at the 2016 ROMS Asia-Pacific Workshop to be held at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies building on the Hobart Waterfront, Tasmania, Australia, October 17-21, 2016. The workshop will be jointly hosted by the Antarctic Climate & Ecosystem CRC and the Antarctic Gateway Partnership at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, University of Tasmania, located in Hobart, Australia.
The invitation is open to everybody that wants to attend. In particular, we invite our Australian, New Zealand, and Asian users. The previous Asia-Pacific workshop was in 2009.
The workshop will be run as a standard ROMS workshop, but with a distinct polar flavour. The workshop will consist of three components:
- A regular user workshop with invited presentations and opportunities to present results (2 days),
- A user short course (2 days), for those interested in learning more about applying ROMS to polar applications, and
- A user short course (1 day), for those interested in learning more about data assimilation (4D-Var).
- Variational methods and applications (4DVAR and Ensemble Kalman)
- sea ice/ocean/atmosphere modelling
- ice sheet/ocean modelling
- General coupled modelling
- Advances in coastal modelling: nesting
The workshop will be held at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies building on the Hobart Waterfront, Tasmania, Australia. Hobart is Australia's hub for Antarctic and Southern Ocean activities, such as scientific research and education.
The registration is open until June 30, 2016. The abstracts for oral presentations and posters are due by August 15, 2016. To register, please log into the ROMS website and fill out the workshop registration form. This information can be updated often. Notice that there also entries for the T-shirt size and abstract(s). If you are not already a ROMS user please fill out this form to become a ROMS user.
All workshop information can be found here. Further information will be posted on that site as it becomes available.
