The First Annual Symposium on the Weather and Climate Enterprise, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society, and organized by the AMS Commission on the Weather and Climate Enterprise’s Board on Enterprise Planning, will be held 6–10 January 2013, as part of the 93rd AMS Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas. Preliminary programs, registration, hotel, and general information will be posted on the AMS Web site (http://www.ametsoc.org/meet/annual/) in late-September 2012.
In the keeping with the 2013 Annual Meeting theme of “Taking Predictions to the Next Level: Expanding Beyond Today's Weather and Climate Forecasts and Projections”, the Commission on the Weather and Climate Enterprise (CWCE) invites presentations on a broad range of topics of interest to the government, private, academic, and other user communities. Possible areas of interest, but not limited to, are the following:
- Renewable energy
- Water resources
- National mesonets, ie “Network of Networks”
- Climate services
- Open Weather and Climate concepts and practices
- Weather, climate and human health
- Transportation and weather
- Weather and Resilient Ecosystems
- Dissemination Services
- Federal budget impacts and strategies
- Communicating risk and uncertainty in weather forecasts
- Weather decision technologies
We are also plan on other topics that will have or will have the potential to impact the weather and climate enterprise broadly over the academic, private, and government sectors. Special emphasis should be placed upon providing information that highlights outcomes and strategic vision on topics that are relevant to today’s evolving scientific, budgetary or societal community issues. Topics and themes should incorporate interactions between sectors including lessons gained, success stories and/or areas of concern for the professions related to the general AMS membership and beyond to various user communities.
