The NOAA's General Modeling Meeting and Fair intends to engage the interests of all NOAA Line Offices to help move NOAA towards a more unified approach to modeling, as envisioned by NOAA's Research Council, facilitating exchange of best practices across all of NOAA's modeling enterprise, and a culture evolution. The main theme of this year's meeting is "interdisciplinary modeling and partnerships". Overarching goals of this event are to enhance modeling communication and networking, and inform future NOAA Unified Modeling Committee activities.

The General Meeting will include keynote presentations and discussions addressing NOAA Lines Offices cross-disciplinary modeling activities, needs and opportunities. The Fair will enable NOAA organizations and their partners to showcase their modeling capabilities, focusing on cross-disciplinary aspects, network with experts and get model/model data users' feedback. Modeling tutorials will be offered during the event to help foster the cross-disciplinary use of existing models and adoption of tools that support such modeling.

All in NOAA and from outside of NOAA in the external community who have an interest in NOAA models and model output applications are invited to attend! If you have work that is relevant to the NOAA modeling enterprise, NOAA model development and applications, submit an abstract for the Fair to share your work.

For general inquiries please send an e-mail to the Organizing Committee.
