The 10th NAME User Workshop

Content of the workshop

The workshop will focus on recent developments and applications of NAME. This year's workshop will introduce NAME v8.5 and look ahead to v8.6, as well as demonstrating the wide range of uses of NAME.

There will be presentations on NAME model developments, quantifying uncertainty, air quality, inverse modelling and volcanic, chemical, radiological and biological dispersion, as well as practical hands-on activities and opportunities for you to ask questions and get help with NAME on Jasmin, ADAQ Python and other general NAME issues.

A limited online programme will be available via Microsoft Teams for those who are unable to travel.
