ECSS letters of schedule sent out

The scientific programme committee of the ECSS was very active during April and May checking all the submitted abstracts. The letters of acceptance were sent out on 28 May to those who submitted abstracts for the conference. The letters of schedule (including the type of presentation – oral or poster) were sent out on 7 June 2015.

The conference will take place in Wiener Neustadt, located just south of Vienna between the Alps and Lake Neusiedl, and easy to reach from Vienna airport. We expect an exciting week that will feature all aspects of severe storms, ranging from their forecasting to climatological aspects and from storm detection by radar and satellite to their impacts.

Confirmed keynote speakers include Greg Carbin (Storm Prediction Center, Norman, OK) and George Bryan (UCAR, Boulder, CO).

On Wednesday, a panel discussion will address the challenges of storm forecasting in Europe.

In addition, there is an extensive programme of social side events. The Local Organizing Committee and the Scientific Programme Committee are looking forward to welcome you in September in Wiener Neustadt.

Successful ESSL Testbed 2015

Although weather wasn’t very cooperative during some days, participants of the ESSL Testbed 2015 were able to test new or even experimental forecasting and warning tools. You can look back to the activities in our Testbed Blog.
