ECMWF | Reading | 8-10 November 2023


The goal of this three-day Boot Camp was to provide training for the participants to use machine learning (ML) in weather and climate applications on High-Performance Computing systems (HPC). The participants received an introduction to the scientific domains of meteorology, ML, and HPC. Afterwards, they explored the applications developed in the MAELSTROM project that include:

  • The use of citizen observations and social media data for better weather predictions
  • The use of neural network emulators for faster forecast models
  • The post-processing of ensemble and local weather forecasts
  • The prediction of large-scale weather patterns to support energy production 

See for further details.

The tutors were from MAELSTROM partners (

  • European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts
  • Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (ETH Zürich)
  • 4Cast GmbH & Co. KG
  • Meteorologisk Institutt
  • E4
  • Universite de Luxembourg
  • Forschungszentrum Jülich.

The MAELSTROM Boot Camp was organised back-to-back with the MAELSTROM Dissemination Workshop (
