Abstract Submission for the ICMCS-X  Conference is now closed.

The International Conference on Mesoscale Meteorology and Tropical Cyclones, organized by the East Asia Weather Research Association and sponsored by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), will be held 15 September – 18 September 2014 at NCAR in Boulder, Colorado, USA. This conference is the 10th in the series of International Conferences on Mesoscale Convective Systems (ICMCS). The conference will foster and promote interactions among researchers in East Asia and the United States through presentations and discussions on jointly interested topics on mesoscale meteorology and tropical cyclones.

Papers are solicited on observational, modeling and theoretical aspects related to Mesoscale Meteorology and Tropical Cyclones. The themes of the conference emphasize topics in the following areas: 1) Mesoscale Convective Systems and the Mei-Yu Front; 2) Tropical cyclones; 3) Heavy orographic precipitation; 4) The assimilation and impacts of radar, satellite, ground-based and space-based GPS data and other non-conventional observations; 5) Short-term forecast of heavy rainfall and stream runoff; and 6) Emerging technology. 

ICMCS-X will be organized around the key foci for this conference by oral and poster sessions (power and tables are available upon request for poster presenters to show results on their laptop).
