Workshop Information

The goal of the scientific workshop is to discuss recent developments of verification research and keep the research community updated on new verification practices, as applied to different types of weather forecasts and environmental predictions, on all spatial and temporal scales, from weather and sub-seasonal, to seasonal, decadal and climate scales.

Participants are welcome from operational, research and forecast-user communities. Abstracts are solicited on all aspects of verification methodology.

Note that the focus of abstracts and presentations should be on the methodology rather than results and application of verification methods to specific datasets.
