2011 IMA Conference on Mathematics of the Climate System
Date: Monday 12 – Thursday 15 September 2011
Location: University of Reading

First Announcement and Call for Papers:
This conference will be about the construction and use of mathematical models of the climate system. Such models aid our understanding of how certain climate processes interact. They also enable us to assess, interpret and diagnose more comprehensive climate models. Finally, they provide readily understandable paradigms for dynamical climate-system behaviour. The conference will focus on three related topics:

1. the extraction of mathematical models from climate data and climate-model output (homogenisation, stochastic model reduction, bistability and metastable states, low frequency variability, data-driven coarse-graining, set-oriented methods, trend identification, time-series analysis);

2. reduced models and their dynamics (linear response theory, bifurcations, extreme events, uncertainty); and

3. testing hypotheses about the climate system using statistical frameworks (emulators, Bayesian methods, nonparametric methods, equitability).

Call For Papers:
Papers will be accepted for the conference based on a 100-200 word abstract. Abstracts should be submitted by 6 May 2011 either online at http://online.ima.org.uk/ or by email to conferences@ima.org.uk
