The U.S. Climate Variability and Predictability Program (US CLIVAR) announces the Fall 2016 call for new US CLIVAR-sponsored workshops and one new working group for 2017. Submissions are encouraged from the U.S. climate science community.

The US CLIVAR program annually sponsors open community workshops, conferences, and science meetings to coordinate, develop, plan, and implement new or focused activities for the benefit of the scientific community and relevant to the goals of US CLIVAR. Workshops can serve as an initiation point in the planning process for future initiatives within the community. Funding is limited and not all submitted workshop requests may be supported.

The US CLIVAR program establishes limited-lifetime, action-oriented Working Groups of scientists to coordinate and implement focused activities for the benefit of the scientific community. This year's call supports the possibility of up to one new Working Group, which will be initiated around January 2017 and undertake actionable and measurable tasks over a two to three-year period.

Submissions should be sent via email to uscpo [at] usclivar.org

Submission deadline: 7 October 2016.
