Dear all,

the ECSA steering committee has organized a workshop in connection to  
the WCRP open science conference that takes place this weeks.

The theme of the workshop is to examine the diversity of regional climate
issues with a focus on developing countries. 35  early career scientists
from around the world were selected who research how observations, modeling,
analysis and process research can be used to address regional climate issues,
to understand which developing regions are most at risk, and determine how
regional climate projections can be improved. The primary goal of this
workshop is to exchange ideas and establish collaborations for future work
between early career scientists from across the world and those from
developing countries.

All NCAR scientists and visitors are invited to join the open session  
on Thursday, October 19,  2011, in the Main Seminar Room, which is  
divided into three main topics:  Regional Climate, Climate Impact and  
Air Quality (see below). We also have breakout sessions on Friday. If  
you would like to attend those, please contact me, because we are  
limited in space.

The agenda for the breakout sessions is available here
