Meetings and Events

NCAS, via its Centres, Institutes and Affiliated Universities, organises and contributes to a wide range of meetings and events concerned with atmospheric science, throughout the UK.

By holding regular meetings and events, NCAS engages on a regular basis with its key stakeholders: the academic community; operational agencies, namely the Met Office and the Environment Agency; and various Government departments; the Research Councils; the general public; the media; and commercial organisations.

A one-day symposium organised by the Environmental Chemistry Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry. The 2016 ECG Distinguished Guest Lecture will be provided by Professor Alan Robock (Rutgers University). Click here for more information about the event.

The Royal Society of Chemistry sponsored International Symposium on Gas Kinetics and Related Phenomena will return to the United Kingdom in 2016, with the 24th meeting taking place from the 17th - 21st July at the University of York, UK.

The conference traditionally provides an open forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest research on a wide range of topics related to gas-phase chemical kinetics. Breadth of coverage has expanded in recent years to include all aspects of atmospheric and combustion chemistry, including heterogeneous systems involving micro- and nano-particles.

A wide range of experimental and theoretical presentations are welcome, covering topics such as reaction dynamics; elementary processes, atmospheric, interstellar and planetary chemistry; combustion; modelling of complex systems; nano-particles and aerosols and experimental methods, to name but a few.

Date: 22 -27 July 2016

Location: Manchester

The EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) has developed into the largest general science meeting in Europe where scientists meet scientists, policy makers, media specialists, business leaders and the wider community. The home of ESOF 2016 is Manchester, UK - the city where Marx met Engels and Rolls met Royce. Similarly ESOF 2016 will be a meeting of minds, bringing together many of the world’s foremost scientific thinkers, innovators and scholars.

2016 is a special year for science in Manchester, coinciding with the 250th anniversary of the birth of John Dalton – the father of atomic theory. ESOF will be the culmination of an 18 month celebration of science in the city.

At this point, the Programme Committee is seeking session proposals to populate the science programme. Playing on Manchester’s unique history as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, the overarching theme for the event has been announced as ‘science as revolution’. As such ESOF 2016 will be an opportunity to discuss the socio-cultural and economic implications and impacts of scientific revolutions from regional, national, European and global perspectives.

The call for proposals is now open until 1st June 2015. Submissions for science-based seminars, workshops and debates on the latest research and policy issues are warmly welcomed. This is an open invitation to individuals and organisations alike and it is hoped that the call will inspire the foremost thinkers and researchers from across the global scientific community to take a unique look to share with us how science and technology has the potential to transform all our lives.

The Royal Meteorological Society and National Centre for Atmospheric Science are jointly hosting a 3-day conference at the University of Manchester on 6-8 July 2016. The theme of the conference is High Impact Weather and Climate and, through an integrated approach, aims to bring together academics, practitioners and industry to exchange knowledge and ideas in meteorology, climatology and related fields. The conference will focus on strategic issues relating to High Impact Weather and Climate and will include a mixture of thought provoking plenary sessions, workshops, and oral and poster sessions aiming to stimulate and foster new ideas around observing, predicting and responding to high impact weather in a changing climate.
