Conference Title

The Third International Conference on Regional Climate (ICRC-CORDEX 2016)

Conference Date

May 17-20, 2016


Stockholm, Sweden


More than 300 scientists, all interested in regional climate, came together at Stockholm University, in Sweden, on 17–20 May 2016 for the Third International Conference on Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX). Out of over 460 abstracts submitted to the conference, 89 oral presentations and 306 posters were presented during three conference days. The aim of the conference was primarily to bring together the international regional climate research community, focusing on high-resolution climate information and its applications to vulnerability, impacts and adaptation, and the full spectrum of potential end users of regional climate information. The conference also offered a platform for further capacity development, training and knowledge exchange for developing-nation scientists, and an opportunity to expand existing or build new collaborations. In addition, the conference had an intention of demonstrating successes, both broadly across the discipline and through case studies (CORDEX in Action), and of facilitating cross-region collaboration around CORDEX Science Challenges, with the potential for keynote speakers to address more thoroughly one of the Challenges. The conference also focused on the future of CORDEX, where discussion and development of plans including Flagship Pilot Studies, scientific challenges, and Coordinated Output for Regional Evaluations were key issues.
