Conference Format

Posters are to have a maximum A0 portrait presentation size, and it is the intention that these will be on display for the whole duration of the conference. A local poster printing service is provide by MuPrint, just in case you are travelling a distance and don't want to bring your poster with you.

As the venue will be set up ready for the conference by Sunday, it is recommended that you find your poster site and put up your poster during registration hours on the Sunday.

Oral presentation slots will be 15 minutes long, generally following a format of a talk of 12 minutes duration followed by 3 minutes of questions. Strict time keeping will be maintained to keep the conference to the planned schedule.

Oral presentations should be provided as Powerpoint format files and be uploaded (and checked) in the presentation uploading/checking room where help will be on hand, should technical problems arise, preferably on the day prior to the presenting session, or at least one full session before the session in which they are due to be presented. In particular, for Monday morning sessions, you are encouraged to upload your presentation during registration hours on the Sunday. Additional information can be found here.


Abstract Submission

Papers are solicited on theoretical, observational and numerical modelling studies of cloud and precipitation physics, cloud chemistry and cloud dynamics. Key subject areas are listed below.

If you feel your abstract does not fall into one of the listed key subject areas, there will be an option to select an "other" category at the submission stage (and supply key words of your own that better describe your work). The options chosen will then be used to subdivide the talks into balanced but coherent final conference sessions by the review panel (commission members).

The conference will include sessions selected from the following key subject areas:

  1. Basic cloud and precipitation physics
  2. Warm boundary layer clouds
  3. Convective clouds (including cloud electrification)
  4. Mixed phase clouds (including Arctic/Antarctic stratus, mid-level clouds)
  5. Cirrus clouds
  6. Orographic clouds
  7. Fog and fog layers
  8. Mesoscale cloud systems (including severe storms)
  9. Tropical clouds
  10. Southern Ocean clouds
  11. Polar stratospheric clouds and noctilucent clouds
  12. Aerosol-cloud-precipitation-interactions and processing
  13. Clouds and climate (including radiative properties of clouds)
  14. Ice nuclei and cloud condensation nuclei
  15. Cloud and precipitation chemistry
  16. Measurement techniques (of cloud and precipitation properties) and uncertainties
  17. Applications of cloud and precipitation physics

The abstract submission window is now open and the closing date has been extended. It will now close on 29 January 2016. Please don't leave it to the last day to submit your abstract!

Instructions to Contributors

  1. Please submit your abstract by 29 January 2016 (midnight UK time). Abstracts should comprise a maximum of 250 words in text format (you can copy and paste from MS-Word), you should include key area numbers from the list above (in priority order) and any additional keywords, if required, at the beginning of the abstract. There will be a series of questions including:
    * Title of abstract
    * Author(s) affiliation(s)
    * Name(s) of author(s) and who is likely to be presenting author
    * Preference for a session and format (oral/poster)

  2. Abstracts are accepted for review on the condition that the content is original and has not been previously published in a Journal or presented at a Conference.
  3. It is a condition for the acceptance of a paper that at least one author registers for the Conference and presents the paper.
  4. It is anticipated that only one oral presentation per delegate will be accepted.
  5. English is the working language of the Conference. It will be used for all printed material, presentations and discussions.
  6. Please note that there is an abstract submission fee of £50 per abstract, deductible from the registration fee of the presenting author. This deduction will only be applied once per registered delegate.
  7. Authors of accepted abstracts will be notified via e-mail by Wednesday 23 March 2016.
