I would like to draw your attention to the possibility of applying to the workshop on Ensemble Forecasting for Space Weather, described below.
Ensemble techniques have been very successful in improving operational weather forecasting and are also used in many other fields such as data science and economics. Their use in space weather forecasting could not only improve forecast accuracy but also provide simple model uncertainties that are crucial for improving end-user understanding of the products available.
A Lorentz Center @ Snellius Workshop will take place in Leiden, Netherlands, between 2-6 September 2019, with the aim of making concrete steps towards improving space weather forecasts by implementing ensemble techniques. Researchers from academia, operations, and industry across all space weather disciplines and domains will learn from experts in terrestrial weather forecasting and discuss next steps.
There are limited workshop spaces still available, therefore we invite applications to attend the workshop. Please register your interest before 12th July via workshop page on the Lorentz Center website, https://www.lorentzcenter.nl/, where you will also find more information. Note that there is no registration fee to attend, and some limited travel support may also be available (please indicate if this is needed in your application).
