  • Climate projections
  • Weather forecasting

AMOS 2021 – Venue

At this stage we are planning to hold AMOS 2021 in Melbourne at the Melbourne Convention Centre. If we need to change the event format due to social distancing restrictions, the conference will be either moved entirely online or we will hold a hybrid event (online/local participation). In either case, will we try to make AMOS 2021 as interactive as possible. If you have any suggestions, please email Jeanette Dargaville at
