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!
