Welcome to the web site of the 16th International Conference on Clouds and Precipitation, ICCP-2012.

The conference is organized every 4 years by the International Commission on Clouds and Precipitation (http://www.iccp-iamas.org), which is part of the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS, http://www.iamas.org). The goal of the conference is to provide a venue for the presentation of scientific research in the area of clouds and precipitation and to encourage the exchange of ideas within the international community.

The conference registration will be open on Sunday, July 29th, 2012, 15:00 (3 pm). Registration on Sunday will be in the entrance area of the Lecture Hall (Universitätsstrasse 3, see the sign "Mensa am Park" on the building).
The ice-breaker welcome party, taking place in Leipzig's historical underground vault Moritzbastei, starts Sunday, July 29th, 2012, at 18:00 (6 pm).
On Monday morning (July 30th 2012) the registration opens at 7:30 (2nd floor) and lectures will start at 8:30 (HS 8 + 9, 2nd floor).
Oral and poster presentations will be given from Monday morning to Friday afternoon.
Posters have to be in portrait orientation (we recommend A0 in size). Every poster can be on display for 2 full days. Presenters who will present their poster in the sessions on Monday or Tuesday are asked to put up their poster on Monday morning, but no later than 13:30, and take them down on Tuesday evening. Posters that will still be up Tuesday after 18:00 will be removed by the organizers. Presenters who will present their poster in the sessions on Wednesday or Thursday are asked to put up their poster on Wednesday morning, but no later than 13:30.
Oral presentations will have a total length of 15 min, each, which should roughly be divided into 12 min of presentation and 3 min of discussion.
Oral presentations should be provided as powerpoint (ppt, .pptx) or as .pdf file. These files need to be uploaded in a room (Media Check) close to the lecture halls (HS 16), where it can also be checked if they display correctly. We kindly ask you to do this upload at least two hours before your lecture.

WMO Cloud Modeling Workshop

It has been quite a long tradition to have a cloud modeling workshop prior to the ICCP conference. This will also be done in 2012, with the workshop taking place in Warsaw, Poland, July 23-27, 2012. The workshop webpage is located at: http://www.atmos.washington.edu/~andreasm/workshop2012/index.html.

A short abstract (maximum of 250 words, deadline December 20th, 2011) will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee to decide upon relevance and scientific merit of the topic. Upon acceptance of the short abstract, an extended abstract will be asked for to be included in the Conference Proceedings. A submission fee of 50 EUR is solicited upon submission of the short abstract. This fee will be considered towards the total registration fee for the conference, but only one fee will be credited per each registered participant, in the event that one registrant submits more than one paper. If the abstract is not accepted, this fee will be refunded.
