The 10-year HyMeX workshop will take place from Monday 25 May to Friday 29 May 2020 in Toulouse, France.
This edition of the yearly HyMeX International Workshops will be largely devoted to the review of the programme's major results since its beginning in 2010, as well as its legacy in terms of advances, dynamics and challenges for the years to come. Besides the 10-year review sessions, the workshop will consist of plenary and parallel sessions to present and discuss recent scientifc progresses in the understanding of the Mediterranean water cycle and associated hydrometeorological extremes. Specific presentations of the programme's results to practioners are scheduled on Thurday 28 May.
Abstract submission - Deadline: 10 February 2020
We invite you to submit a short abstract for oral or poster presentation of your last results related to the Mediterranean water cycle and HyMeX science topics: heavy precipitation, flash-floods and social vulnerability, integrated prediction of heavy precipitation and impacts, Mediterranean cyclones, strong winds and inten-se air-sea fluxes, deep water formation and ocean circulation, Mediterranean Sea water budget, droughts and water resources.
Practitioners’ Day 28 May 2020
Within the framework of the workshop, a day of presentation of the 10-year HyMeX results for practitioners is scheduled on Thursday, 28 May. This day will be organised in sessions of 1h-2h, with presentations by the researchers involved in the programme followed by a question and discussion time with the participants. Participants will choose the sessions they wish to attend at the time of registration. The sessions will be in French or English, depending on the speakers and audience. There will be no registration fee for attending the practitioners' day only, but registration will be required.
