International Conference on Regional Climate - CORDEX 2013

4-7 November 2013, Brussels

The World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), the European Commission (EC) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are proud to hold this international conference on regional climate science


The first day of the meeting will feature two important pre-conference events:

A High-Level Session with the participation of the European Commissioners for Research & Innovation Máire Geoghegan-Quinn and for Climate Action Connie Hedegaard together with Rajendra K. Pachauri, Chair of the IPCC where the key findings from the IPCC Working Group I Contribution to the Fifth Assessment Report Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis will be presented by Thomas Stocker and Qin Dahe, Co-Chairs of IPCC Working Group I.

This will be followed by a Stakeholder Dialogue where high level panellists will discuss how science-based regional climate information can best serve the needs of regional decision-makers. This will be featured by two keynote presentations conveyed by:

- Chris Field, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group II
- Michel Jarraud, Secretary-General of the WMO


The second segment of the conference over the following three days is organised around daily themes. Each day will consist of plenary presentations followed by parallel and poster sessions. The poster sessions will have their own dedicated time for viewing thus avoiding overlap with plenary and parallel sessions.

- Evaluation of CORDEX Regional Downscaling Present Climate and Future Change
- Methodologies for Regional Downscaling
