Call for Papers: Statistical downscaling of climate and environment at Water 2010 (Canada)

Last modified November 11, 2009 14:33 expired

A special session entitled "*Statistical downscaling of climate and environment: Methods and Applications*" will take place during the international conference "Water 2010" (http://www.water2010.org/) in Quebec City, 5-7 July 2010.

Dear colleagues,

A special session entitled "*Statistical downscaling of climate and environment: Methods and Applications*" will take place during the international conference "Water 2010" (http://www.water2010.org/) in Quebec City, 5-7 July 2010.
You are kindly invited to submit an abstract to participate in this event. Abstracts can already be submitted on-line through the web site.  Of course, feel free to forward this announcement to your favourite mailing-list and/or to anyone potentially interested.


Short description of this session:
Statistical downscaling (SD) models have become quite popular over the last decade. Their computational properties and flexibility make them serious competitors over dynamical approaches to provide local-scale generated data needed for many impacts studies of climate change and evolution.
The goal of this session is twofold: to present and/or propose new state-of-the-art algorithms and recent applications of statistical downscaling. We thus wish to bring together developers and practitioners of SD methods for climate, hydrology, and, more generally, environment. Hence, contributions can include presentations of theoretical/methodological approaches (e.g., stochastic, extreme values, Bayesian, probabilistic, non-linear models, uncertainty modelling), as well as applied SD studies in environmental fields (e.g., hydro, precipitation, agronomy, water resources) at any temporal resolution and scale (past, present, future).


The working schedule is:
*February 1st, 2010* *Deadline for receiving one-page abstracts
*March 1st, 2010 Authors notified of acceptance/rejection and reviewers' comments*
April 1st, 2010* *Deadline for receiving full papers (if desired)*
April 15th, 2010 Authors notified of paper reviewers' comments
May 10th, 2010 Deadline for receiving final full camera-ready papers (if desired)
*May 15th, 2010* *Deadline for early bird registration*

Waiting to meet you in Quebec City.

Sincerely,
Mathieu Vrac and Julie Carreau
