The convenors of the joint AMOS annual meeting and 12th International Conference on Southern Hemisphere Meteorology and Oceanography are calling for expressions of interest from enthusiastic researchers to organise scientific workshops for those attending the event.

Professional development workshops have been proposed and are currently being organized. The Conference will host workshops on:
