VI Convection-Permitting Climate Modeling Workshop

7-9 September 2022, C. A. Buenos Aires, Argentina


Workshop will based on scientific contributions from the community in fort of short oral presentations or A0-size posters.

The workshop aims to foster discussion and interaction among attendees. In this sense, a series of keynotes and discussion over key topics related to convection-permitting climate modeling activities.
