After careful consideration, the CPASW 2020 organizers have decided to postpone the workshop due to the escalating COVID-19 situation. As health concerns increase, several agencies and institutions are implementing travel restrictions, especially for large group gatherings. We will send notices to all attendees and presenters regarding the status of the workshop so people can take appropriate action to cancel reservations and travel plans. Information on new dates for the workshop and the refund process for those who have already registered will be coming very soon. Please check the status online and/or keep a lookout for CPASW email announcements.
The 18th Annual Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW) will bring together a diverse community to share developments in research and application of weather and climate information for societal decision-making. Participants will include researchers, service producers, resource managers, planners, practitioners, social scientists, and others making weather and climate-sensitive decisions. NOAA’s National Weather Service Climate Services Branch, Arizona State University, the Arizona State Climate Office, and many climate services partners are collaborating in the organization of the 2020 CPASW.
The workshop will convene in Phoenix, Arizona, April 14-16, 2020, for discussion centered on the theme of “Providing services for the cascading effects of intensifying heat in a rapidly growing region."
The workshop will address the following focus areas:
The workshop will gather experts from the region, the nation, and the world to focus on extreme events and the role of climate services. It will provide an opportunity for sharing effective strategies for understanding decision maker requirements, communicating extremes threats, and the heightened uncertainty and attribution of extreme events.
The annual Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW), initiated in 2002 by the NOAA National Weather Service Climate Services Division, brings together a diverse group of climate researchers, climate product producers, and climate information users to share developments in research and applications of climate predictions for societal decision-making. A unique planning team, consisting of several NOAA climate services partners, organizes and hosts CPASW at a different location each year to ensure varying climate application focuses, and both regional and national perspectives.
