International Workshop

Convection-Permitting Modeling for Climate Research

Current and Future Challenges

Live Session Program

The workshop is composed by two parts, pre-recorded presentation viewing from August 15 (question deadline August 24) and live sessions on September 2-4. In live sessions, after introducing Q/A of each presentation a bit, discussion about invited talks and session's theme with participants will follow.
