5th NCEP/NWS Ensemble User Workshop

10 - 12 May 2011

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of Dr. Louis Uccellini, Director of NCEP, I would like to invite you and/or your colleagues to the 5th NCEP Ensemble User Workshop jointly with Development Testbed Center (DTC), to be held at a local hotel between 10 and 12 May 2011. The venue of the meeting will most likely be the same hotel where the last meeting was held, Holiday Inn Laurel West (I-95/RT 198W).

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together experts and users involved in the generation and use of NCEP ensemble forecast information to review progress since our last meeting in May 2008 and to discuss plans. Preliminary information about the workshop is available at: http://www.dtcenter.org/events/workshops11/det_11/ . Additional information will be posted on the same web page as they become available.

Would you please visit the workshop website at http://www.dtcenter.org/events/workshops11/det_11/ for registration and/or send a message to Pam Johnson (johnsonp@ucar.edu) , with a cc to me (Yuejian.Zhu@noaa.gov), Barbra Brown (bgb@ucar.edu) and Zoltan Toth (Zoltan.Toth@noaa.gov), indicating whether you or a colleague of yours could attend, by 8 April? Please also send us any suggestion you may have related to the workshop. We will also send out a second announcement when the other information is finalized.
