Modeling Convection, Cloud and Climate System

A symposium in honor of Professor Akio Arakawa   

This two-day symposium will foster scientific exchange in the fields of convection and clouds and climate modeling, to honor the contributions of Professor Akio Arakawa. A set of invited talks will provide the broad context for discussion and poster sessions that reflect the advancements and explore new directions in the areas to which he contributed, and to engage and inspire students and early career scientists to pursue careers in climate modeling and related areas. A public lecture aimed at a broad audience will be given by Professor Kerry Emanuel of MIT.

Graduate students and postdoctoral researchers who are interested in attending this symposium can apply for travel support provided by NSF.
