Aviation, weather and climate: Scientific research and development for future aeronautical meteorological services in a changing atmospheric environment

Organized under the auspices of the Commission for Aeronautical Meteorology (CAeM), the Commission for Atmospheric Sciences (CAS) and the Commission for Basic Systems (CBS)

Host: Météo-France at the Centre International de Conférences in Toulouse, France


To provide an overview of the current state-of-the-art and foreseen advances in meteorological science and technology needed to underpin the changing global aviation industry, in line with the ICAO Global Air Navigation Plan (GANP) and its Aviation System Block Upgrades (ASBU) methodology. It is expected that this unique event will stimulate special research focus on high impact weather affecting safety and efficiency of the aviation and will foster rapid transition from research to operations. In addition, the event is intended to raise the awareness of the potential impacts of climate change and variability on aviation operations now and into the future.

The sessions themes include:

  • Opening address and keynotes
  • Session 1: Science and technology underpinning aernotautical meteorological observations, forecasts, advisories and warnings
  • Session 2: Integration, use cases, fitness for purpose and service delivery
  • Session 3: Impacts of climate change and variability on aviation and associated science requirements

A poster session will also take place.


Includes scientists and researchers working in aeronautical meteorology observations, forecasts and warnings; service providers (e.g., National Meteorological Services and other designated providers); users of aeronautical meteorology services; relevant international organizations; national and regional air traffic management modernization programmes and the manufacturing industry. Registration for the conference is online
