SHORT Conference and AGM 2016
Meteorological Society of New Zealand
Short Conference and AGM
Wednesday 16 November 2016
MetService NZ, Kelburn, Wellington
Call For Abstracts
We are pleased to announce that the Meteorological Society of New Zealand’s annual conference in 2016 will be held in Wellington at the head office of the MetService. The overall theme of the conference will be:
Challenges of Observing and Forecasting in Earth System Science
covering all aspects of meteorology and oceanography, focusing on observations and numerical predictions including research and climate projections. The Society also welcomes contributions on all wider topics associated with meteorology, ocean and climate.
Because of the joint conference with the AMOS and ANZCF early in 2017, this year’s conference will be shorter than usual, occupying the afternoon of the 16th November only. We plan on two kinds of presentations:
1. Standard oral presentations of 15 minute duration, including Q/A.
2. Rapid-fire Pecha Kucha-style 5 minute oral presentations.
The number of presentations will be limited, due to the shortness of this year’s conference. In addition, we will have one keynote presentation at the beginning of the conference session. The conference will be followed by the Society’s AGM.
Please e-mail your expressions of interest including your abstract and your preferred style of presentation, to Daniel Kingston (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 12th August 2016. A program will be released in October 2016. There will be no registration fee associated with the conference.
