Meeting Theme

This year's Forum theme is "Leveraging Environmental Intelligence to Enhance Risk Management." Following that theme, the Forum will focus on the use of weather, water, and climate data--together creating a foundation for environmental intelligence--to support risk management across the public and private sectors. This includes agencies and companies whose operations and planning are dependent on environmental factors, as well as agencies and companies whose primary mission is to identify, analyze, and/or mitigate environmentally induced risks.

This year's themed sessions include:

  • Congressional and Executive Staffers
  • Federal Agency Leads
  • Space Weather
  • NOAA Big Data
  • Environmental Security
  • Renewable Energy
  • Water Resources
  • Impacts of COP21
  • Challenge.gov Program

We will also be unable to process payment for conference registrations during this time. Payment for forms submitted after noon on 11 March will be processed at the end of March.
