From September 18 to 21, 2018, the 13th General Assembly of the CLM Community (https://www.clm-community.eu/) took place at Campus South. Nearly 60 international participants learned over these four days about the latest results and developments of the COSMO-CLM and ICON model systems in 23 plenary lectures and 21 posters. The premises in building 10.81 ("altes Ingenieursgebäude") also offered the opportunity to engage in parallel sessions in in-depth discussions in the individual working groups of the CLM community.
The conference proceedings holding all abstracts can be downloaded at the website of the KIT library.
One of the highlights was certainly the Climate Lecture held in the same week by the KIT Climate and Environment Center. The speaker was Prof. Thomas Stocker (ETH) with insights into the procedures of the IPCC. We thank the KIT Center for organizing the Climate Lecture in the week of the assembly.
In addition to the scientific content, the "ice breaker" on Tuesday and the conference dinner in the Hoepfnerburg on Thursday provided ample space for an exchange on a more personal level.
Herewith, the organizing team would like to sincerely thank the participants of the conference, the CLM working group leaders, the scientific advisory board, the catering service, the janitors of building 10.81, the student assistants and all others involved in organizing the assembly!
