7th OpenIFS User Meeting

ECMWF | Reading, UK | 13-16 May 2024


Theme: The new OpenIFS 48r1model

The 7th OpenIFS User Meeting will take place at ECMWF’s headquarters in Reading, UK.  

This meeting is organised by ECMWF for the OpenIFS model’s user community. It represents an opportunity for the model users to meet in person and showcase their research and to learn about new developments with OpenIFS. The aim is to foster networking and collaborations among model users.  

The meeting in May 2024 will not be linked to any specific scientific theme. All research areas and teaching opportunities with OpenIFS will be of interest. All participants are encouraged to submit an abstract for either a contributed oral presentation or for a poster presentation. Of interest for discussion will be all OpenIFS-related work, either in research or in teaching, that has been carried out in the recent past, is happening at the current time, or is planned as future work.
