15th Conference on Cloud Physics Call for Papers

Submit Abstract

The 15th Conference on Cloud Physics, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS Committee on Cloud Physics, will be held 9 – 13 July 2018 jointly with the 15th Conference on Atmospheric Radiation, at the Hyatt Vancouver in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Hotel and general information will be posted on the AMS web site  (https://www.ametsoc.org/ams/index.cfm/meetings-events/ams-meetings/15th-conference-on-cloud-physics-15th-conference-on-atmospheric-radiation/) by Late April 2018. Hotel reservations and pre-registration deadline is June 4, 2018.

Papers are solicited on all aspects of cloud physics, including warm and cold clouds over all regions of earth, and cloud linkages to atmospheric chemistry, aerosols, radiation, precipitation and climate. Contributions drawing from theory, field observation, laboratory experiments, and modeling at all scales are welcome.

 Joint sessions with the 15th Conference on Atmospheric Radiation on remote sensing of clouds, indirect effects, and optical and radiative properties of clouds are envisioned.


Please submit your abstract electronically by 7 March 2018 via https://ams.confex.com/ams/. A fee of $95 (payable with a credit card or purchase order) will be charged at the time of submission of each abstract (refundable only if abstract is not accepted).  The $95 abstract fee includes the submission of your abstract, the posting of an optional extended abstract, and the uploading and recording of your presentation, which will be archived on the AMS Web site. We will no longer be producing a CD-ROM, allowing us to extend the deadline date for extended abstracts. Authors should indicate their preference for a poster or oral presentation when submitting the abstract; those authors presenting more than one paper should clearly indicate which they prefer for a possible oral presentation.


Authors of accepted presentations will be notified via e-mail by Late-April 2018. All extended abstracts are to be submitted electronically and will be available on-line via the Web. Instructions for formatting extended abstracts will be posted on the AMS Web site.  Manuscripts (up to 3MB) must be submitted electronically by 10 August 2018.  All abstracts, extended abstracts and presentations will be available on the AMS Web site at no cost.
