Upcoming MDPI Conferences (1)
16–31 July 2021 The 4th International Electronic Conference on Atmospheric Sciences
You are cordially invited to participate in the 4th International Electronic Conference on Atmospheric Sciences. In this meeting, we hope to build on the success of this conference series. We acknowledge that sharing our work face-to-face with our colleagues is preferred, but the continuing COVID-19 crisis has made this impossible. Technology is continuously improving the virtual experience and thus we will be taking advantage of the latest developments in order to create a quality online experience. Additionally, this will allow us to save for future conference budgets as well as increase our level of interaction. This online conference represents a new initiative that provides researchers of atmospheric science the opportunity to present their research and exchange ideas with their colleagues. Feedback from participants of the previous editions indicated that they were pleased with this format and would like to see the meeting grow.
For the 4th International Electronic Conference on Atmospheric Sciences, the range of topics will be more general; however, we are open to subject areas of thematic importance. During the last few decades, great strides have been made in all general areas of atmospheric science. We have seen the proliferation of remote sensing technologies and techniques for their use in research and forecasting. We have seen advances in the understanding of synoptic and dynamic meteorology, which have improved weather forecasting. Advances in the capabilities of atmospheric modeling as well as increases in computing power have enhanced our understanding of atmospheric behaviors on all time and space scales. Additionally, there have been discoveries related to the behavior of smaller-scale systems, especially those that interact with human activity, health, and economics. These have inspired techniques through which people can be warned when these events might affect them. The increased understanding of interannual and interdecadal variability in climate has also led to the development of long-range forecasting and projection. In conclusion, this conference will be organized around the following sessions and related themes, which correspond to the journal Atmosphere.
- Air Quality;
- Air Quality and Human Health;
- Atmospheric Techniques, Instrumentation, and Modelling;
- Biosphere/Hydrosphere/Land–Atmosphere Interactions;
- Upper Atmosphere;
- Planetary Atmospheres.
- Atmospheric Physics: remote sensing; satellite and RADAR meteorology; water cycles; nowcasting; mesoscale models.
- Atmospheric Chemistry: air quality; atmospheric chemistry; upper atmospheric chemistry.
- Synoptic and Dynamic Meteorology: forecasting techniques; cyclone and anticyclone development; the jet stream and its behavior; blocking anticyclones; operational meteorology; forecast skills; forecast models.
- Regional Climate and Interannual Variability: El Nino; teleconnections; long-range prediction and projection; climate modeling; climate change; downscaling techniques.
- Tropical Meteorology: tropical storms; atmosphere–ocean interactions; modeling convection; the general circulation.
Accepted papers will be gathered in the journal Proceedings. Selected extended versions will be published in Atmosphere Special Issue "Advances in Atmospheric Sciences" after peer review with a discount of 20% on the article processing charge.

Yonsei University, Korea
I am very pleased to invite you to attend the Quadrennial Ozone Symposium (QOS) in Seoul, South Korea, on October 3 (Sunday) - 9 (Saturday), 2021. Despite its tiny fraction, ozone is a crucial gas in the Earth Atmosphere. The ozone layer in the stratosphere protects life on Earth by filtering out damaging ultraviolet radiation from the sun. In the troposphere, ozone is an important greenhouse gas and a strong pollutant at ground level. Since the last QOS that took place in Edinburgh in 2016, a variety of new developments have taken place on all facets of atmospheric ozone, including its observation and impact on human health and ecosystems. The Symposium’s program addresses all these aspects. Through the foreseen keynote talks, presentations at the sessions and discussions at poster sessions and side events, QOS 2021 is of high interest for all scientists throughout the world interested in atmospheric ozone and more generally in the study of the Earth’s atmosphere.
25–29 October 2021 The 17th European Space Weather Week
The ESWW is the main annual event in the European Space Weather calendar. It is the European forum for Space Weather as proven by the high attendance to the past editions. ESWW17 will again adopt the central aim of bringing together the diverse groups in Europe working on different aspects of Space Weather: scientists, engineers, satellite operators, power grid technicians, communication and navigation specialists, people working in aviation, space weather service providers, etc. ESWW is an excellent place to meet people, to exchange knowledge and ideas, to discuss the latest on solar activity, how space weather influences the earth environment and our technologies and how to deal with space weather.
