We encourage ALL participants to submit an abstract (you can do this on the registration page here  Even if you are not yet working with the OpenIFS model it would be useful to learn about your research and how you think OpenIFS will contribute to this work.

Practical session:

The introductory practical computer session will also be run using MS Teams and Jupyter Notebooks on the European Weather Cloud.  You will only need a web browser to participate in the practicals.  The practicals are aimed at users who are new to using the OpenIFS model or who want to start using the latest version OpenIFS 48r1.  

Kind regards
