8:30 - 5:00 MDT (Mountain Daylight Time USA or UTC - 6)

Mini tutorials on Friday, June 23

8:30 - 10:00 MPAS (with a focus on regional application)

Call for Papers (abstract submission is closed)

The primary objectives for the Users' Workshop are to provide updates for WRF and MPAS modeling systems, to discuss model development and issues, and to present evaluations and applications of the two models. This year we especially seek contributions on development and application using the MPAS model:

1) MPAS model and MPAS/DA development updates.
2) High-resolution global and regional applications using MPAS.
3) New Physics development for high-resolution models.
4) MPAS/WRF model comparisons.

Authors may request either a poster or an oral presentation; however, we encourage authors to consider submissions for a poster presentation, due to time constraints for oral sessions. Note that the poster session will be entirely in-person.
