The 5th Polar Prediction Workshop will be held in Montreal, Canada, on 7-8-9 May 2018. The workshop will take place at the Agora Hydro-Quebec.

The workshop will focus on:

  • polar predictability from subseasonnal to interannual timescales
  • sea ice prediction
  • operational and research efforts

In addition, reviews for the Sea Ice Outlook project and other initiatives related to polar predictions will be discussed.

We also propose a new activity for 2018:
An important outcome of the Workshop will be a consensus forecast statement synthesizing predictions of
(i) September mean Arctic sea ice extent, and
(ii) sea ice conditions during the Arctic shipping season for key regions plus the Northwest Passage and Northern Sea Route shipping corridors.

Participants are invited to contribute to any or all of these forecasts using a form that will be circulated to registrants and posted online, and are encouraged to highlight these predictions in their presentations. Operational forecasters and forecast users are warmly invited to participate.

To register and/or submit an abstract, please use this form.
Deadline for abstract submission: March 31, 2018.
