The Sea Ice Prediction Workshop will be held at National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) on 1-2 April 2014 in Boulder, Colorado.

The workshop goal is to plan for the 2014 SEARCH Sea Ice Outlook (SIO) and to advance the science of sea ice prediction by coordinating experiments, defining and developing data sets for initialization and validation, creating new and better metrics for evaluation, and discussing stakeholder needs.

Anticipated participants include SIO contributors, data experts, sea ice experts, experts on prediction from other fields, and U.S. agency program managers.

Workshop space is limited. Organizers ask those interested in attending to send a brief (about 100 words) statement of interest and summary of work related to sea ice prediction to Cecilia Bitz (bitz [at] uw.edu).

The workshop is funded, in part, by the Department of Energy. There will be no registration fee. Participants will be asked for a small donation for refreshments. Limited funding is available for travel support. If attendance is contingent on receiving travel support, please explain travel needs and note if PhD has been received within five years.
