  WMO AEM Programme CIC meetings
Welcome and thank you for visiting the homepage
of the WMO Aeronautical Meteorology Scientific Conference 2017!

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) through its technical commissions for Aeronautical Meteorology (CAeM), for Atmospheric Science (CAS) and for Basic Systems (CBS), and the French aviation meteorological service provider, Météo-France, are organizing the Aeronautical Meteorology Scientific Conference 2017 (AMSC-2017) at the Centre International de Conférences of Météo-France in Toulouse, France from 6 to 10 November 2017.

The theme of the AMSC-2017 is:

"Aviation, weather and climate: Scientific research and development
for future aeronautical meteorological services
in a changing atmospheric environment."

The objective of this event is to provide a forum for representatives of the research community, the service providers, and the users of aeronautical meteorological information and services to discuss the needs for science and research in support of the current and future aviation transport. The future global air traffic management (ATM) as foreseen in the ICAO Global Air Navigation Plan and its Aviation System Block Upgrades methodology, will require a new generation of weather information and services and their full integration in the system-wide information management. The Conference will provide an overview on the current state-of-the-art and foreseen advances in aeronautical meteorology science and technology, and the expectations for faster transfer of these advances into operations. The Conference will formulate a set of recommendations to inform better planning the scientific research activities over the next 15 years consistent with the user needs and expectations.

This event will embrace and strengthen community partnerships that already exist at a national and regional level and will establish new partnerships fostering regional and global collaboration. It will consist of several thematic sessions of scientific presentations and case studies followed by panel discussions. A poster session is envisaged to provide opportunity in particular for young scientists to present their work and ideas.

It is expected that this unique event will contribute to a common vision for scientific research and development activities over the next 15 years aligned with the evolving needs and expectations of international civil aviation and will stimulate special research focus on addressing identified top priority areas of high impact weather affecting safety and efficiency of the aviation. In addition, the event is intended to raise the awareness of the potential impacts of climate change and variability on aviation operations now and into the future.
