Sixth International Workshop on Monsoons

(IWM-6)

Singapore, 13-17 November 2017

THEME of IWM-6:

        The Global Monsoon System: Research and Forecast of

                 Severe Monsoon Weather and Climate Impacts

The International Workshop on Monsoons (IWM) series is a part of the WMO major quadrennial symposia and workshops series under the World Weather Research Programme (WWRP).

IWM-VI is organized by the Monsoon Panel of the WWRP Working Group on Tropical Meteorology Research (WGTMR), in cooperation with the CLIVAR/GEWEX Monsoon Panel, the MJO Task Force, the S2S Steering Group, the YMC Scientific Steering Committee, Meteorological Service Singapore, and Chinese University of Hong Kong.

The workshop provides a forum for researchers and forecasters to discuss recent advances and current issues covering all time scales (meso-, synoptic, extended range, intraseasonal, climate) that are relevant to the forecasts of high-impact weather in the monsoon regions around the world. It is also an effective means to transfer new science and technology to National Meteorological and Hydrological Services in these regions. As in previous IWMs, a monsoon training workshop will be included to offer short courses to developing country NMHS forecasters sponsored by WMO.

An important part of the program is the invited reviews which will be finalized by the authors after the workshop and peer reviews, and published in a WMO-sponsored book: The Global Monsoon System: Research and Forecast, IV.

In addition to the invited reviews, IWM-6 will also include invited and contributed oral and poster papers.

IWM-6 NEWS

 

Decision letters on submitted abstracts have been sent to all authors by the International Organizing Committee. 

The registration is now open to authors of abstracts who can reasonably expect to secure funds to cover their travel, and NMHS staff sponsored by their agency or WMO

The IOC does not provide travel support to workshop participants.

Application for WMO funding support is now close. The number of available WMO support is very limited, no more than one for each WMO Member.
