The workshop on “Stochastic Modelling in GFD, data assimilation, and non-equilibrium phenomena” to take place at Imperial College London in the period 2-6 November 2015. The workshop proposes to gather the combination of expertise needed to address compound and interdisciplinary questions raised by climate science, in the context of stochastic modelling in geophysical fluid dynamics, data assimilation and non-equilibrium phenomena. The scope of the meeting is illustrated by the following spectrum of topics to be covered by speakers who are recognised as world–leading in their field:

  • Analysis of nonlinear PDEs in geophysical fluid dynamics including their stochastic counterparts.
  • Bayesian learning, inference methods and data assimilation for high-dimensional models
  • Numerical analysis and scientific computing for multi-scale, high and variable resolution weather and climate models on exascale computer architectures
  • Statistical mechanics of geophysical flows, instabilities, and extreme events


Researchers interested to participate are warmly welcome. Please register below. The registration fee is normally £20. A reduced fee of £10 is accepted from PhD students and Postdoctoral fellows. Registration deadline: 6th November 2015
