2010 EULAG Model Users' Workshop
13-16 September, 2010. Poland
Modeling Atmospheric Circulations with Sound-proof Equations
Official Workshop Flyer in PDF format
Second Announcement in PDF format
Following the successful 1st International EULAG Workshop held in Bad Tölz, Germany, in
2008, we are pleased to announce the second international workshop which will take place in
Poland. The workshop is organized and sponsored by the Institute of Meteorology and Water
Management (IMGW) with the organizational support of the University of Warsaw.
The recent years brought a significant development of the EULAG code aimed at diverse
research applications. Concomitantly, new ideas have emerged in the atmospheric community
on the theoretical and numerical formulation of sound-proof equations.
The primary topic of the workshop will focus on the review of the
current status of inelastic models and their applications. On this
topic, we invite contributions from the larger geophysical,
computational fluid dynamics community on all aspects of inelastic
atmospheric and oceanographic modeling.
The meeting will bring together EULAG users and developers of related numerical methods.
The secondary theme looks at the latest new developments and applications relevant to EULAG.
We invite presentations showing diverse research applications of EULAG,
with the aim of exchanging experiences and promoting collaborations
between EULAG users.
In addition to scientific sessions the meeting will also feature
a session discussing an updated master code and prospective future standards for EULAG, and
tutorials concerning the basic and new features of the numerical code.
The editors of Acta Geophysica,
an SCI-source Springer?s journal on geophysical problems, plan a special issue devoted exclusively to the workshop.
Call for abstracts:
One page abstracts on topics related to either EULAG or the general topic of "Modeling Atmospheric Circulations with Sound-proof Equations" are invited.
Please submit abstracts by e-mail to (email@example.com).
The deadline for abstract submission is Friday, 19th of March 2010.
Notifications of acceptance will be e-mailed by the 26th of March 2010.
There are no registration fees
Sopot is located on the outskirts of the Hanseatic city of
Gdansk. Sopot is a sea resort on the Baltic sea, surrounded
by forest, full of historical architecture and proud of the
longest wooden pier in Europe(
www.sopot.pl). We will be
meeting in the modern lecture hall of the Institute of Oceanology
of Polish Academy of Sciences (address: Sopot, Powstancow Warszawy 55,
www.iopan.gda.pl), located just meters from the sandy beach
Fly to Gdansk "Lech Walesa" international airport (GDN,www.airport.gdansk.pl),
then you may take a taxi directly to Sopot (City
Plus Neptun Taxi has a good reputation, approximate cost is 90,- zloty
on Sundays, 4 zloty is approximately 1 euro).
Alternatively, there is a
public bus (number 110) to t he Gdansk-Wrzeszcz train station (Wrzeszcz
PKP), from which you need to take the urban train (SKM) to Sopot railway
station. It takes 26 minutes to ge t by bus from the airport to Wrzeszcz
PKP, the final bus stop. Buses ride on Sundays about every 40 minutes
(the time table:,
Sunday is "niedziela" in Polish, and working day is "dzien powszedni"). At
Wrzeszcz PKP you need to take the SKM train in the direction to Gdynia and
get off at Sopot Glowny (Sopot main station) which takes about 14 minutes,
the trains ride on Sundays every 15 minutes (the time table for September
is not available on the internet yet, we will provide this information
later). From the station you can either walk or take a taxi. The price of
a bus and train ticket is around 3 zloty. There is also a bus (number
210) from the airport to the Gdansk main railway station, from which
you can take the SKM train to Sopot, but the journey will take about 30
Alternatively, you may fly to Warsaw and take a train
from Warsaw main station (Warszawa Centralna) directly to Sopot Glowny
We have pre-booked rooms in:
Haffner hotel, very close to the workshop venue, and in the smaller
Villa Sedan hotel, located less than 10 minutes walk from the workshop venue.
The room rates per night are 330 zloty for a single room in Haffner
and between 260 and 360 zloty in Villa Sedan, depending on the room.
Internet access is included. To book, use the reservation form of the
Haffner Hotel, attached to this message, or follow the Villa Sedan web
page and ask for the EULAG workshop special rates. Limited number of rooms
is available, so we urge the participants to book early. The deadline for
booking the reserved rooms is 30 of April, after which time the rooms
will be released to the general public.
Alternative accommodations can be found at www.sopot.pl.
In close proximity to the venue there are:
Between 1 - 2 kilometers, there are not very expensive Hotel Europa Hotel Europa
and inexpensive Zatoka.
See more options here
Please, note that September is high season in Sopot, therefore we recommend early booking.
Deadlines and key dates:
19 March 2010: abstract submission
30 April 2010: release of reserved hotel rooms
13 to 16 September 2010: workshop
We cordially invite everyone interested to participate in the workshop. We would appreciate if
you could pass this invitation on to other colleagues especially those who might be interested in
learning more about EULAG or who have interest in reviewing applicability of inelastic
models. E-mails indicating that you consider participating in the workshop are most welcome
and would help us with the organization.
