Call for Papers

The 16th Conference on Cloud Physics, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS Committee on Cloud Physics, will be held at the Monona Terrace in Madison, WI, August 8-12, 2022.  The conference will be held jointly with the AMS 25th Conference on Satellite Meteorology, 17th Conference on Polar Meteorology and Oceanography, and 16th Conference on Atmospheric Radiation as part of the Collective Madison Meeting.


Papers are solicited for sessions that cover a wide range of topics, including but not limited to:

  • Advances in Cloud Parameterizations
  • Advances in Laboratory Experiments Related to Clouds
  • Aerosol-Cloud Indirect Effects
  • Cirrus Clouds
  • Cloud Processing of Aerosols and Gases
  • Clouds and Climate Change
  • Deep Convective Clouds
  • Ice Nucleation and Secondary Ice Production
  • Mesoscale Cloud Organization
  • Mixed-Phase Clouds
  • Optical and Radiative Properties of Clouds
  • Precipitation Physics
  • Remote Sensing of Clouds
  • Shallow Convective Clouds
  • Turbulence and Entrainment

Please submit your abstract electronically via the AMS conference website by 14 April 2022 (see the website for instructions). The abstract submission fee of $95 USD is charged at the time of submission and refundable only if the abstract is not accepted. Authors of accepted presentations will be notified via email by mid-May 2022.


While we are aware there is continued uncertainty associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, at this time we believe this conference will take place entirely in-person. Specific details regarding the conference program and format will be posted by AMS as soon as they are available. We encourage all presenters and attendees to visit the meeting website often to stay up to date on the latest news.


Submissions by students, early-career scientists, and underrepresented groups will be prioritized, and limited funds in the form of registration fee waivers or travel grants are available to support participation and further details will be available when abstract acceptance notifications are sent.
