13 February 2020 - 16 February 2020 AAAS 2020 Annual Meeting

Envisioning Tomorrow’s Earth:  “The scientific endeavor has been at the forefront in developing innovations which have improved life on Earth in immeasurable ways. Now, life on this planet is facing new challenges from both nature and the built world, and scientific application is our best tool with which to react. By drawing on our current understanding of the world, and bravely experimenting with forward-thinking visions, the scientific community needs to respond with discoveries and developments to help solve many pressing problems.

10 March 2020 - 12 March 2020 5G Enabled Energy Innovation Workshop (5GEEIW)
Westin Michigan Avenue Hotel, Chicago.

Emerging advanced wireless networks such as fifth-generation (5G) cellular network technology offers potentially new opportunities and capabilities for the advancement of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Office of Science missions. In particular, 5G and its associated ecosystem technologies are expected to offer up to 20 Gbps connectivity with 1 ms latency. Initial discussions with DOE program managers and national laboratory scientists provided rationale and ideas for a workshop on energy innovations enabled by 5G technology as well as future technologies such as WiFi 6, 6G, and beyond for the advancement of existing and emerging scientific domains, infrastructure, and applications.

This workshop will deliver a community-based report highlighting 5G and beyond basic research, development, applications, technology transition, infrastructure, and demonstration opportunities in support of the U.S. DOE mission. The report will help the DOE Office of Science understand both the challenges and the opportunities offered by 5G and emerging advanced wireless technologies in the areas of basic research, development, and integration into scientific user facility operations.

Interested participants are welcome to submit online a one- to two-page white paper providing technical material relevant to the workshop addressing a specific technical area. All submitted white papers will be reviewed by the program committee, technical area leads and co-chairs. A white paper must be submitted to only one technical area (no duplicative submissions); however, in the event a white paper overlaps with other technical areas, it must be indicated within the white paper at the bottom. Also, the review committee may re-assign/re-allocate white paper submissions to other areas. Participation in the workshop will be based on the relevance of the submitted white paper to the stated goals of the workshop. Any submitted materials may be made available for unlimited public distribution.

  • Whitepaper submission deadline: Jan. 31, 2020
  • Whitepaper decision notification Feb. 7, 2020
  • Registration deadline March 4, 2020
16 June 2020 - 19 June 2020 Improvement and Calibration of Clouds in Models

The goal of this workshop is to discuss and share the latest improvements of atmospheric parameterizations for the representation of clouds with a focus on turbulence, convection, cloud, microphysics and radiation. This concerns any type of models: regional or global models with numerical weather prediction or climate applications. Topics will include:

  • Observations and LES for parameterization developments: systematic comparison of SCM to LES on an ensemble of cases; parameterization-oriented diagnostics
  • Recent progresses in cloud, turbulence, convection, microphysics parameterizations
  • Cloud radiative effects: reference computation, cloud overlap and heterogeneity issues, new development in parameterization
  • Strategy of tuning: process-oriented calibration of parameterizations, link with 3D tuning
  • Machine learning for model improvement
  • Future for the representation of clouds in models
22 June 2020 - 26 June 2020 2020 ARM/ASR Joint Meeting
Join your ARM and ASR colleagues at the June 2020 ARM/ASR joint meeting in Rockville, Maryland.

The next Joint Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) User Facility/Atmospheric System Research (ASR) Principal Investigators Meeting will take place June 22 to 25, 2020, in Rockville, Maryland, at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville Hotel & Executive Meeting Center. This meeting will bring together more than 300 ARM users, ARM infrastructure members, and ASR researchers to review progress and plan future directions for the ARM user facility and ASR research.

For registration and hotel information, and instructions on submitting poster abstracts and breakout session requests, visit the meeting planning website. Check the website soon for the final agenda.

General meeting sessions will run from the afternoon of Monday, June 22, through mid-afternoon Thursday, June 25. Plenary sessions will include presentations by U.S. Department of Energy program managers, scientific presentations by ARM users and ASR principal investigators on research progress, and invited speakers. Poster sessions will be held both Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons to review research results.
