The 4th PMIP International meeting will be held at New Hall, Cambridge, UK, from June 22nd to 26th, 2002. New Hall is a small modern college close to the centre of Cambridge and the river Cam. The city of Cambridge is in the south east of England, 50 miles north-east of London. It is well served by road and rail links, and is within an easy distance of the major London airports.
Following the conclusions of the third PMIP workshop in Canada, the goals of the meeting are to discuss the next phase of PMIP in terms of intercomparisons and working groups. This will include:
We anticipate the meeting to consist of a couple of days of presentations related to progress since the last meeting, and then a couple of days focussed on the design of the new set of PMIP simulations, and the requirements for new or expanded datasets.
Please fill free to send us any comments you have on the next PMIP phase, and the possible structure of the meeting. Prior to the workshop, we will aim to circulate some of the ideas for the simulations.
Saturday, June 22nd
Arrival of participants in Cambridge
Sunday June 23rd to Wednesday, June 26th
Some excursions (including punting on the river Cam)
Thursday, June 27th
We currently do not have financial support for the meeting, and the likely total cost of accommodation, food etc is likely to be about £500 ($700). We are seeking sponsors for the meeting and hope to be able to reduce this amount.
Travel expenses to Cambridge will be at the charge of the participants.
Please send a confirmation of participation, by competing the attached registration form, as soon as possible and no later than 31st March.
We will need an abstract and confirmation of dates of arrival and departure by 30th April.
Pascale Braconnot, Sandy Harrison, Chris Hewitt, and Sylvie Joussaume.
