Workshop for early-career researchers (PhD students, postdocs) in environmental modelling and simulation disciplines.
This workshop presents an overview of key stages in the modelling process: development, evaluation, practical use, and communication of results. Interactive discussion sessions and exercises will help participants explore concepts presented in the lectures and relate these to their own research. Themes include:
• Evaluating model performance;
• Statistical inference from ensembles of models;
• Why good statistics is not enough;
• What do decision-‐makers want? What can environmental modellers provide?
• Effective dissemination of uncertain forecasts.
Speakers include: Leonard Smith, David Stainforth, Emma Suckling, Erica Thompson, Elizabeth Stephens (Reading), Lindsay Lee (Leeds).

Deadline for applications: November 15th 2013
This workshop is part of the NERC Postgraduate and Professional Skills Development Programme. NERC-funded applicants will be given priority, but the workshop is open (and free) to all.
