Posted on Feb. 27, 2019

Dear ISIMIP community,

We are very happy to invite you to the next cross-sectoral ISIMIP workshop. The workshop will be held in Paris, France from 4 to 7 June. The workshop will be jointly organized by the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (LSCE) and the ISIMIP team at PIK.

After the small, topic-centered workshops in 2018, we are once again bringing together ISIMIP modellers from all sectors, members of the scientific advisory board, the ISIpedia team as well as ISIpedia stakeholders.

At the workshop, we will be able to exchange ideas, discuss recent as well as planned future work and further specify the needs for the next simulation round ISIMIP3. On the last day, we will be joined by the climate modellers from the CRESCENDO project for discussions on the climate forcing data to be used in ISIMIP.

Please have a look at the two attached calls for abstracts for presentations of your ISIMIP-related work. We kindly ask you to submit your abstracts via email to by 22 March.
