2017 Workshop Announcement

NCAR's Climate and Global Dynamics Laboratory is pleased to announce its 22nd Annual CESM Workshop being held at NCAR, Center Green Auditorium, Boulder, CO from 19 - 22 June 2017. This year's workshop will be a combination of plenary presentations, special interest presentations by the CESM working groups, and a poster session for participants to highlight their work. We hope you'll join us this summer in Boulder.


Registration will once again be opened in three phases:

  1. Phase I: CGD staff who need travel assistance;
  2. Phase II: CAB and SSC members and external Working Group co-chairs;
  3. Phase III: NCAR staff and general attendees.

Dates for when these Phases open and close are sent out to the 'CESM Participant' email list [subscribe]. Registration will close on Wednesday, 7 June 2017.

Registration Fee



Working group co-chairs will select talks and posters from the submitted list. The talks will be chosen based on the goals and program of each particular working group session.

Because the space that we have available for the poster session is finite, we cannot guarantee that a presentation request will be granted. If you are chosen to present a poster, please check the agenda, and be available during the poster session for comments and questions. Posters will be available for viewing for the remainder of the workshop. Posters must fit a 4' x 4' space. Push pins will be provided for you.

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 by registering in Phase I that opens on the week of 10 April 2017. Those who have requested travel assistance will be notified of their status by approximately 3 May 2017.


The workshop will be held at NCAR’s Center Green auditorium. Final meeting room locations will be available on the agenda closer to meeting time.
