Overview of Sessions’ Theme (times are BST):

​​​​​​​Session 1 - **NGMS and Technical infrastructure (TI) (**Monday 05th June : 0830 – 1700)
This session will provide overview on progress on Next Generation Modelling and Supercomputer activities across the Partnership, with a focus on:

  • Updates on progress on NGMS projects and collaborative activities
  • Opportunities for enhancing collaboration with existing and future computing capabilities​​​​​​​

Session 2 – Global Coupled (GC) & Earth System Modelling (Tuesday 06th June: 0830 – 1700)
This session will be focused on GC science activities and Global Coupled NGMS plans and preliminary evaluation of GC5-LFRic

Session 3 – Regional Atmosphere and Land Modelling Science (Wednesday 07th June: 0830 – 1230)
This session will be focused on regional modelling science activities with a focus on science updates following the release of the RAL3.1 Science configuration, plans for RAL3-LFric and future regional science activities

Session 4 – Post-Processing and Ensembles Exploitation (Wednesday 07th June: 1400 – 1700)
This session will be focused on postprocessing of model data using StaGE & IMPROVER and also on exploiting ensemble data in operational products and services.

  • IMPROVER is a post-processing system designed for blending multiple ensemble data sources;
  • StaGE presents model data in standardized form and may be used as a pre-processor for IMPROVER.

Session 5 – Data Science (Thursday 08th June: 0830 –1700)
This session will cover data science (ML & AI) focused on:

  • Hybrid ML models and ML in numerical models, with scientific talks on ML applications
  • “Pure” ML models, with a panel discussion with big ML model creators on what they think the role of ML is in the future of weather and climate modelling
