Call for Abstracts: International Workshop on the Madden-Julian Oscillation

06-09 August, 2016

Chengdu, China

FIRST CIRCULAR

The Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) is an important element of the atmospheric climate system. Its role in connecting tropical and global weather and climate has been increasingly appreciated. During the past three decades, several field campaigns were conducted in the tropics that have advanced our knowledge of MJO, maintenance, propagation and initiation (TOGA COARE, MISMO and DYNAMO). A future two-year (spanning 2017 – 2019) field campaign called Years of the Maritime Continent (YMC) is planned that will build on these previous efforts. One of its objectives is to improve our understanding of the Maritime Continent barrier effect on eastward propagation of the MJO from Indian Ocean to Pacific Ocean. A pressing need exists to synthesize our current understanding of dynamics of the MJO, its impacts on weather and climate, and its predictability.

A workshop is being planned that aims to bring scientists around the globe to have in-depth discussions of the current status of MJO studies. The workshop will focus on the following topics:

  •  Dynamics of the MJO (initiation and propagation)
  •  Impact of the MJO on the global weather and climate systems
  •  MJO prediction and predictability
  •  Need of observations

Workshop Format:

The format of the workshop will consist of a main line of invited and selected plenary presentations covering the MJO research. Several extended poster sessions and a few parallel sessions on the above topics will complement the plenary. Participants will be asked to submit an extended abstract, which will be compiled into an electronic abstract volume prior to the workshop and made available to all participants.

Important Dates:

  •  15 March, 2016: Abstract submission and registration open
  •  15 April, 2016: Issue the Second Circular (including the list of invited speakers and logistics information)
  •  15 June, 2016: Deadline for abstract submission
  •  31 June, 2016: Online agenda  
  •  10 July, 2016: Deadline for on-line registration

Registration Fee: 1000CNY/160USD  

Participants will be expected to arrange and fund their own travel including airfare, accommodation and local transportation. The registration fee entitles you to the following:

  •  Attendance to all scientific sessions
  •  A hard copy of the programme and the abstract volume  
  •  Meals during the workshop
