Sparse Days Meeting 2015 in Saint-Girons III, France

Sparse Days Meeting 2015 in Saint-Girons III, France
June 28th-July 2nd, 2015

 

The annual CERFACS Sparse Days in 2015 was much enhanced by scheduling it within the CIMI semester (http://cimi-semester-hpc.fr) working in collaboration with our colleagues in the CERFACS-IRIT common lab. There were over 100 attendees, half of whom were from outside France and a quarter from the United States. The meeting was held in St Girons, Ariege entitled « Sparse Days in St Girons III » in recognition of two previous conferences that we organized in St Girons in 1994 and 2003.

The meeting was held from Sunday 28th June until Thursday 2nd July and was memorable both for the excellence of the 40 talks and 2 posters as well as the fantastic hospitality of our hosts in St Girons and Ariege. Such was the success of the meeting that we do not feel inclined to wait as long as ten years to repeat the event and venue so watch this space around 2020 for St Girons IV!

Copies of the presentations at the meeting are available from the website.

CMIP6 debriefing workshop – May 2021: a stocktaking and foresight exercise that highlighted the major and long-term investment of the CNRM-CERFACS group in the latest climate model intercomparison international exercise

CERFACS |  9 June 2021

The participation of the CNRM-CERFACS group in the international coupled global climate model intercomparison exercise CMIP6 was debriefed on 10 and 11 May. Since the mid-1990s, the various phases of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP), supported by the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), have enabled climate science to make significant progress, feeding into the IPCC reports, supporting regional climate modelling activities and downstream climate services. On the balance sheet, the participation of CNRM-CERFACS in the extremely demanding CMIP6 exercise has resulted in a large-scale, high-quality contribution in terms of climate simulations, thanks in particular to the strong commitment of researchers and engineers, the quality of support services and national and international collaborations. The activities mainly took place over the period 2013-2020. Initially, the production environment ("workflow") was set up and the coupled climate models were assembled by capitalising on the development of components (atmosphere, ocean and continental surfaces) carried out over the long term. The actual production of simulations was spread over 2018-2020. During the debriefing, perspectives (scientific objectives, model development, organisation) were drawn up with a view to a new participation of CNRM and CERFACS in CMIPRead more
