IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION FOR THE PARTICIPANTS: YOU ARE KINDLY URGED TO VISIT THE OPERATIONS UNIT from 8:30 - 9:30 on Monday morning, October 24 as both the bank and the ICTP operations unit have reduced services (pls see days and timings in this message). For this purpose, two ICTP Shuttle buses will bring participants to and from the Adriatico to the E. Fermi building on regular 10 min. intervals. On-Campus Shuttle Service link:

[open on Mondays, Tuesdays & Fridays ONLY, 8:30 - 12:00 & 1:30 - 2:30]; UNICREDIT Bank, Mondays & Fridays ONLY, 8:30 - 1:20 & 2:30 - 4:00. - Meal coupons (participants whose expenses are covered by the ICTP): balance will be issued by either Guesthouse Receptions one day after the on-line registration is completed according to the following timetables:

The topic is clearly relevant to scientists from developing countries, especially monsoon-effected countries for which Teleconnections are an important source for predictability which provide a necessary input for management of water resources. The topic is also of great scientific interest to many climate scientists. An intermediate complexity climate model will be introduced to study Teleconnections. This model can be used even with limited computing recourses, making it a very relevant tool for scientists from developing countries. Topics include: - Report present-day Teleconnections in Atmosphere and Oceans at all time- scales. - Decadal-to-multidecadal variations in Teleconnections. - Role of Stratosphere in Teleconnections. - Role of Ocean-Atmosphere coupling in Teleconnections. - How may present-day teleconnections change in the future climate? - Role of Teleconnections in predictability - Methods for identification of Teleconnections - Scale interactions in Teleconnections Main Organizers: - In-sik Kang (SNU, Korea) - Franco Molteni (ECMWF) - Riccardo Farneti (ICTP) - Fred Kucharski (ICTP)
