European Working Group on Operational Meteorological Workstations (EGOWS)

ECMWF | Reading | 15-17 October 2018


EGOWS was founded in 1990 as an informal forum for people working in the development field of operational meteorological workstations. The annual EGOWS meeting offers an excellent platform for exchanging information and furthering co-operation among the experts from European NMS's, ECMWF and other institutes.


The meeting consisted of presentations, software demonstrations and working group discussions. Talks and demonstrations focused on the latest developments and gave participants the opportunity to demonstrate their current operational systems. Working groups discussed special subjects, such as batch processing and web services. The EGOWS meeting focuses on more than IT technology - it can also encompass broader aspects such as designing systems and interacting with users.
