OpenIFS is an ECMWF led project to provide an easy-to-use and exportable version of the IFS forecast model. Use of the OpenIFS is gradually increasing in research and academic groups in Europe. This meeting will bring together OpenIFS users and developers to share experiences, discuss plans, and learn more of the OpenIFS in practical sessions.
User presentations are most welcome, and can be included into the programme. Please send the title to firstname.lastname@example.org by 19 May2013.
The programme consists of a day of presentations with a keynote presentation by Prof Erland Kallen, ECMWF, and two workshop days using OpenIFS to run and visualize case studies of Hurricane Sandy.
