The Interdisciplinary Workshop on Weather and Climate Extremes hosted at Clemson University is a three-day workshop. The workshop will be held May 16-18, 2023.
Registration is open between February 17 and May 4, 2023.
This workshop aims to serve two complementary purposes. The first is to provide a venue to facilitate collaborations among statisticians, atmospheric and hydrological scientists to advance modeling and understanding of high-impact extreme events in the Earth climate system. The second is to introduce graduate students, postdoctoral scholars and researchers from other domains to the techniques and challenges that are unique to extreme value analysis.
The workshop will feature a pair of short courses: the first one, given by Dr. Eric Gilleland will cover contemporary advances in statistics of extremes, and includes a hands-on R software tutorial for extreme value analysis. The second short course, taught by Dr. Travis O'Brien, will give a Python tutorial on the Toolkit for Extreme Climate Analysis (TECA). The workshop will also include research talks and panel discussions on statistical methodology and applications related to extremes, as well as talks/discussions on the science and impacts of extreme events in the Earth system. Each of these panel discussions will include both statisticians and Earth science domain experts. Finally, there will be a young researcher poster session, consisting of 3-minute speed talks and regular poster presentations.
