AMOS National Conference 2013 - Call for Abstracts
Deadline Extended to Friday, 5 October 2012
Abstracts are now open for the 19th National Conference of the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (AMOS) to be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Monday 11th - Wednesday 13th February, 2013.
Our weather and climate is changing, and so is the working environment for Australian meteorologists, climatologists and oceanographers. The 2013 AMOS National Conference will therefore focus on developments in our understanding of the physical climate system and review the required skills and knowledge of professionals working in the field.
Major topics include:
- Climates of the past and projections for the future
- Variability of atmospheric and oceanic processes at different scales
- Model development: enhancing our understanding of the climate system
- Scientific computing and the 21st century meteorologist, climatologist and oceanographer
In addition to the general science programme, a number of special sessions will also be held on specific topics related to the observation and modelling of atmospheric and oceanic processes, climate variability and extremes.
Abstract submission and session details are available now at the AMOS National Conference 2013 website. Registrations will open in October. Please direct any questions to Jeanette Dargaville: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In conjunction with our Conference, AMOS will be holding a Software Carpentry Boot Camp at the University of Melbourne, hosted by Software Carpentry Project founder, Dr. Greg Wilson. Further information about the Bootcamp will be forwarded shortly.
We look forward to welcoming you to Melbourne in February!

Chair, AMOS 2013 Conference Organizing Committee
