The National Weather Service Climate Services Division, and the Southeast Regional Climate Center at the University of North Carolina , will host the 6th Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW) in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, on March 4-7, 2008.

The CPAS workshop brings together a diverse group of climate applications researchers, climate product producers, and users to share developments in research and applications related to the use of climate predictions in societal decision-making. The meeting goals:

(1) to identify new climate prediction applications research,
(2) to "build community" by promoting interactions between integrated climate-sensitive research and service communities,
(3) to assess impacts of climate forecasts on environmental-societal interactions,
(4) to provide feedback to producers of climate products on user requirements.

Important Note: The workshop will not address technical challenges of making climate predictions, climate modeling, or other technical topics related to the science of climate predictions.
