Numerical Modeling, Predictability and Data Assimilation in Weather,
Ocean and Climate — A Symposium Honoring the Legacy of Anna Trevisan
The Symposium will be held on October 17-20, 2017, at the Institute of
Atmospheric and Climate Science (ISAC) of the Italian Research Council
(CNR), in Bologna (Italy).
The event aims to honor Anna´s scientific contributions and her impact
on the atmospheric, oceanic and climate sciences. The sessions are
open to all those scientists, students and colleagues who have worked
with Anna in person, to those whose past and current research has been
influenced by Anna’s work and by her personality, as well as to those
who expect to gain future insights from the communications presented
at this symposium. The event has no fee and it gathers together
renamed experts from several countries and it is thus a unique
opportunity for students and early career scientits.
Full information, including registration and submission of abstracts:
The Symposium will be structured along three thematic areas:
1. Numerical modelling of the atmosphere and ocean — Keynote Speaker:
E. Kalnay (Univ. of Maryland, USA)
2. Predictability — Keynote Speaker: M. Ghil (ENS & UCLA, France & USA)
3. Data Assimilation — Keynote Speaker: O. Talagrand (ENS & CNRS, France)
Abstracts on any of the three areas and for either oral or poster contributions are welcome.
The contributions will be published in a Special Issue of Nonlinear
Processes in Geophysics subject to standard peer-review process.
The following invited speakers have confirmed their attendance:
