Invitation to attend Energy & Meteorology 2011
On behalf of the Steering and Programme Organising Committee I would like to invite you to participate in the topical Inaugural International Conference Energy & Meteorology (ICEM) to be held at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia from 8 to 11 November 2011 (Pre-Conference Seminar "Energy & Meteorology: Fundamentals and Challenges" and Welcome Reception on 7 November 2011).
Energy & Meteorology 2011 provides a great opportunity to network with scientists, engineers, economists, policy makers and other specialists working at the nexus between weather, climate and energy. In this burgeoning inter-sectoral industry, Energy & Meteorology 2011 will provide a premium forum in which delegates will:
|Showcase research findings relevant for operational activities, long-term investment planning and policy making in the energy industry
|Advance ways to manage weather and climate risk by the energy industry, especially in the face of climate variability and change
|Enhance coordination between experts in weather & climate research and the energy industry to leverage experience and resources
|Discuss an international framework for the exchange of information between the weather & climate community and the energy industry
As the international community struggles to develop policies and frameworks to effectively tackle climate change, a much stronger connection between Energy & Meteorology will allow the development of forward-looking, cost-effective and sustainable weather and climate risk management strategies for the Energy industry.
I hope you will actively contribute to this event and I look forward to seeing you at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia from 8 – 11 November 2011!
