Dear all,

This announcement may be of interest to some of you. I attended the Summer
School in 2011, and it's a good way to get up to speed on a topic. Most
attendees will be European, so you'll be developing your European network.
If anyone has more detailed questions, I am happy to discuss further.

Subject: Announcement NCCR Summer School 2013

12th International NCCR Climate Summer School:

"From Climate Reconstructions to Climate Predictions"

1 - 6 September 2013, Grindelwald, Switzerland

The NCCR Climate, Switzerland's Centre of Excellence in Climate and Climate
Impact Research, invites young scientists to join leading climate
researchers in the scenic Swiss Alpine village of Grindelwald on the
occasion of the 12th International NCCR Climate Summer School 2013.

The Summer School is focusing on the theme "from climate reconstructions to
climate predictions". This theme has been chosen due to its paramount
importance in terms of both scientific challenges and pressing societal
concerns. The specific topics to be addressed include:

- Climate variability of the past two millennia and the next century
- Calibrating proxies, modeling past climate, data-model comparison,
detection and attribution
- Rapid climate change and feedbacks, tipping points
- Decadal predictability: theory and processes

The Summer School invites young researchers from all fields of climate
research. The courses cover a broad spectrum of climate and climate impact
research issues and foster cross-disciplinary links. Each topic includes
keynote plenary lectures and workshops with in-depth discussion in smaller
groups. All summer school participants present a poster of their research
and there will be ample opportunity for discussion.

Lecturers for keynotes and workshops (confirmed):

J. Beer (EAWAG & ETH Zurich, CH); S. Brönnimann (U Bern, CH); C. Deser
(NCAR, USA); M. Evans (U Maryland, USA); D. Frank (WSL, CH); J. Franke (U
Bern, CH); H. Goosse (UC Louvain, B); G. Hegerl (U Edinburgh, UK); O. Heiri
(U Bern, CH); F. Joos (U Bern, CH); M. Kageyama (IPSL-CNRS, F); T. Lenton
(U Exeter, UK); J. Marotzke (MPI Hamburg, D); C.C. Raible (U Bern, CH); H.
Wanner (U Bern, CH); H. Wernli (ETH Zurich, CH); K. Willis (U Oxford, UK);

and others

The Summer School is open to young researchers (PhD students and Post-Docs)
worldwide. Participation is highly competitive and will be limited to a
maximum of 70. The registration fee (1400 CHF) includes half board
accommodation, excursion and teaching material. A small number of grants
will be available for students from developing countries (i.e. non-OECD


Successful applicants will be notified in February 2013.
