2008 Workshop Announcement

NCAR's Climate and Global Dynamics Division is pleased to announce its 13th Annual CESM Workshop being held at The Village at Breckenridge in Breckenridge, Colorado from 17 - 19 June 2009. This year's workshop will be a combination of plenary presentations and special interest presentations by the CESM working groups. We hope you'll join us this summer in Breckenridge.

Registration Fee

There is a registration fee of $100 to attend the 13th Annual CCSM Workshop, payable by credit card during the on-line registration process. (This fee is waived for CGD staff and CCSM committee members.)

Poster Session

There will be a formal poster session on Tuesday, 17 June 2008 at 11:00 am. Please be available at that time for comments and questions regarding your poster. Posters will be available for viewing for the remainder of the workshop. Posters must fit in a 4' x 4' space. You may mount your poster with push pins that will be provided. You will have an opportunity to enter your title, authors, and a brief abstract in the on-line registration.

Travel Assistance

We have a limited number of funds to assist those who would not otherwise be able to attend the workshop. This usually includes ground transportation and lodging. Please request travel assistance in the on-line registration. Those who have requested travel assistance will be notified of their status in early May.


The town of Breckenridge has a lot to offer - a beautiful mountain setting, variety of restaurants, shopping, golf, hiking, 4-wheeling, horseback riding, kayaking, hot air balloon rides, and several spas, to name just some of the highlights. We think you'll enjoy your free time.

The workshop will be held at The Village at Breckenridge. The majority of our sessions will be held in the Liftside Inn Building. Final locations will be available on the agenda closer to meeting time.
