The 8th NAME User Workshop

Content of the workshop

The workshop will focus on recent developments and applications of NAME.

We envisage there will be presentations on air quality, inverse modelling and volcanic, chemical, radiological and biological dispersion, as well as practical hands-on activities, discussion groups and opportunities for you to ask questions and get help with NAME on Jasmin, the NAME collaboration platform (MOSRS) and other general NAME issues.

Subject to covid restrictions, the workshop will be in hybrid format this year, with in-person and online attendees. Note that, if covid restrictions prevent in-person attendance, the workshop will take place entirely online from Monday 20th to Thursday 23rd June 2022 (mornings only, UK time). Please keep these additional dates free. Microsoft Teams will be used for online participation.

Attendance, and lunch and refreshments for in-person attendees, are free of charge.

For in-person attendees, a workshop dinner will be held on the Wednesday evening. Further details, including menu and payment information, will be sent to registered attendees nearer to the time.

Members as well as non-members of the NAME User Community are invited to participate. You do not have to be a current user of the NAME model to attend.

If you would like to give a presentation (oral or poster), please submit a short (max 1 page) abstract in Word format to [email protected]. Oral presentations will be approximately 15 minutes in duration. There will also be a dedicated poster session. Please indicate your preference. Interactive EGU PICO style presentations are also welcome (as part of the poster session).

The closing date for registration and abstract submission is Wednesday 27th April 2022.

Whether you will be presenting work at the workshop or not, this is still a great opportunity to catch up on what is happening with NAME, ask questions, discuss ideas, and build better links and collaborations.
