Criteria for Abstract Selection

Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the Program Committee

Abstract acceptance will be based on priority given to at least the following criteria that also constitute the purpose of the workshop:

1. Multi-model CMIP5 analyses aiming to physically interpret robust behavior and/or inter-model differences based on basic principles, theories and/or through a hierarchy of models (or model configurations) of different complexities in a multi-model context.

2. The program committee will attempt to achieve a balance of results from the various experiment types from CMIP5.

3. To demonstrate that your analysis has already begun, you are encouraged to include a description of your preliminary analysis so far, and any conclusions supported by it.


Abstract Submission Closed - 15 Dec 2011


A limited number of travel grants are available to enable and support participation of students, early career scientists and scientists from developing countries to attend the workshop. Applications will be reviewed by the Joint Planning Staff in consultation with the Program Committee. Grants will be assigned based on financial need and scientific merit of the proposed poster described in the abstract, contribution to the workshop and all supporting documents required to apply (more information coming). Priority will be given to:

1) Students: those pursuing their graduate studies (MSc, PhD)
2) Early Career Scientists: post-graduates and researchers who received their highest degree in 2005 or later
3) Scientists from emerging and developing economies

Grantees must attend the entire conference in order to benefit from the financial support.

If you wish to apply for travel support, please do so when you submit your abstract where you will be given the option to include a short CV and some text on your motivation to attend the workshop. This extra information will help the funding award selection process.
