Workshop on “Connecting Nowcasting and mesoscale EPS”

16-18 May 2018, Bologna, Viale Silvani 6, c/o Arpae Simc

A Workshop on “Connecting Nowcasting and mesoscale EPS” will be organized in coordination between the two EUMETNET Programmes ASIST and SRNWP-EPS.

The Workshop will take place in Bologna (Italy), hosted by Arpae - SIMC (Hydro Meteo Climate Service), from 16 to 18 of May 2018, from noon to noon.

The aim of the Workshop is to bring together the participants of the two Programmes as well as scientists working in the two fields to present and discuss the growing connections between Nowcasting methods and mesoscale Ensemble Prediction Systems, towards seamless forecasting systems.

The Workshop will be structured in invited presentations, presentations by participants, posters and discussion sessions.


The participants are invited to submit abstract for presenting their works relevant to the topic, in particular:

    • seamless ensemble prediction, including: ensemble analysis, ensemble nowcasting, Rapid UpdateCycle, blending, convective-scale ensembles, EPS calibration;
    • Nowcasting tools in operational services;
    • ensemble forecasting for the very-short range.


Preferred for oral will be the contributions dealing with Nowcasting methods based on mesoscale EPS, RUC and seamless prediction systems.


Deadline for registration and abstract submission is 31 st of March 2018.

Registration is now closed.
For any information please contact cmarsigli@arpae.it.
