The 6th NAME User Workshop

Content of the workshop

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

This year’s workshop will introduce NAME v8.0, as well as demonstrate the wide range of uses of NAME.

We envisage there will be talks on volcanic, chemical, radiological and biological dispersion, as well as ensemble and inverse modelling.

For a second year we are also planning ‘demo-groups’ with hands on activities and opportunities for you to ask questions and get help with NAME on Jasmin, the NAME collaboration platform (MOSRS) and other general NAME issues.

Attendance, lunch and refreshments are free of charge.

Registration and abstract submission

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 Oral presentations will be approximately 15 minutes in duration. There will also be a dedicated poster session. Please indicate your preference.  We also have the possibility to show a few EGU-PICO style presentations on an interactive touch screen (as part of the poster session).

The closing date for registration and abstract submission is Wednesday 24th April, 2019.

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 and build better links and collaborations.
