25th Conference on Probability and Statistics

Topics Covered

Papers for this conference are solicited on:

  • Statistical applications relevant to any area of atmospheric science, but particularly to communicating probabilistic information and predictive skill
  • New statistical applications or methodologies are of particular interest including statistical applications related to the following topics
    • sub-seasonal to seasonal (S2S) prediction and predictability
    • ensemble and multi-model ensemble forecasting methods
    • ensemble post-processing, artificial intelligence, machine-learning and decision making
    • process-oriented model evaluation and prediction
    • extreme value analysis and prediction
    • climate change and non-stationarity in analysis and prediction
    • statistically derived forecasts
    • decision support and climate services
    • handling observational uncertainty
    • metrics for convection allowing prediction (CAMs)
    • score-carding and indexing
    • revision series analysis, forecast consistency, big data and other topics of probability, statistics and verification.
    • Statistics and Artificial Intelligence: Joint Session with the 17th Conference on Artificial and Computational Intelligence and its Applications to the Environmental Sciences

Student Award Opportunities

The Probability and Statistics committee will provide two travel awards of $700.00 for students who have submitted an abstract to the P&S conference or have an interest in attending the conference. There is a October 1, 2017 deadline to apply for travel support. Students who wish to apply are required to submit the following documents in a single PDF document: a current CV/Resume and statement of why they want to attend the meeting, including their interests in probability and statistics, and a letter of recommendation from their advisor.  Please send the document to Scott Sellars, scottsellars@ucsd.edu, and enter "AMS Probability and Statistics Award Travel" as the subject line in the email.
