CMOS 57th Congress
May 28 - June 1
The Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (CMOS) 57th Congress will be held from May 28 to June 1, 2023 in a hybrid format with opportunities for both in‑person and virtual participation. The venue for the in‑person component will be the Sheraton Hotel in St. John’s, NL.
The theme of the Congress is “Connecting on the Rock: From the Marine Environment to the Blue Economy”, recognizing that this is the first time in several years that the CMOS community will meet face‑to‑face. This is also the first time we will embrace a new hybrid format for the Congress and invite both virtual and in‑person participation. We hope that this Congress will remind us of the connection we share with each other and the connection between science and society, particularly with respect to a better understanding of extreme events and fostering a Blue Economy, “a concept that seeks to promote economic growth, social inclusion and the preservation of livelihoods while at the same time ensuring environmental sustainability of the oceans and coastal areas”, as defined by the World Bank.
The Call for Sessions is now open!
Proposals for scientific sessions are being invited for all areas of CMOS interest, especially relating to the following areas:
- All aspects of extreme events, past, present and future
- Connections between science and the Blue Economy, or science in support of the Blue Economy
- Applied science, including the development and evaluation of user services
- Scientific activities enabling discovery, awareness, and accessibility of environmental information
- Advances in observational science, including new and updated data sets, methodologies, field campaigns and instrumentation
- Advances in our understanding of observed variability and change, including process knowledge and the ability to represent those processes in models
- Advances in predicting and projecting future variation and change on all times scales
