AMOS 2021 – Call for abstracts

AMOS Annual Conference 2021
Science for Impact
Online – 8 to 12 February 2021

Abstracts Deadline 11:59pm AEST 6 November

The Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society is holding its 28th Annual Conference from 8 -12 February 2020.  We can now confirm that we are running the AMOS 2021 conference proceedings online via the EventsAIR OnAIR platform.  

The main theme for AMOS 2021 is Science for Impact. This highlights the real world benefits science has, and can have, because of collaboration and partnerships.

In addition to sessions on our fundamental understanding of the main areas of the weather, climate and ocean sciences (e.g. ocean, atmosphere, cryosphere and land surface processes) and the tools that these sciences employ (e.g. observations, modelling), we welcome abstracts that emphasise how the AMOS sciences have an impact in areas such as:

  • Climate projections
  • Weather forecasting
  • Seasonal forecasting
  • Extreme events
  • Weather and climate impacts and risks
  • Renewable energy 
  • Health
  • Water
  • Agriculture
  • Economics and business
  • Social change
  • Communicating the AMOS sciences
  • Education

Deadline – 11:59pm AEST – Friday, 6 November 2020.   Abstracts should be submitted by the presenter.  Note there is a $35 processing fee on all abstract submissions.  We have a short abstract submission timeline to work with so we would be grateful if you could please plan accordingly.
