During the HMG/CSSI meeting in April 2013, ALADIN and HIRLAM consortia decided to join their effort and produce a common newsletter, twice a year.

|N°9, due in July 2017||Please, do use the proposed templates when preparing the contributions ! Deadline for contributions is 15 June 2017|
|N°8, published on 31/01/2017||I am happy to provide you with the 8th edition of the combined Newsletter of the HIRLAM and ALADIN consortia.
This edition is mainly dedicated to a “grand Tour of ALADIN and HIRLAM”, with contributions describing the main achievements at our meteorological services in 2016.
Besides these scientific and technical articles, you will find in this Newsletter an “summary report of a “recent workshop on a relevant subject to our community where a few of us have been involved” and an overview of the 46 LAM operational configurations running at the ALADIN and HIRLAM NMSs.

|N°7, published on 01/09/2016||I am happy to provide you with the seventh edition of the combined Newsletter of the HIRLAM and ALADIN consortia.
This 7th edition is dedicated to the 26th ALADIN Workshop & HIRLAM All Staff Meeting 2016 that took place on 4-8 April 2016 in Lisbon (Portugal), with additional several articles : a special focus on the recent Doctors and on some articles recently published. In Lisbon, ALADIN celebrated its 25th Anniversary, thus it is the opportunity to think back and share some ALADIN stories.
I hope you enjoy reading the seventh ALADIN-HIRLAM Newsletter and thank the authors for their contributions.
|N°6, published on 18/02/2016||I am happy to provide you with the sixth edition of the combined Newsletter of the HIRLAM and ALADIN consortia.

Besides these scientific and technical articles, you will find in this Newsletter an Interview and an overview of operational configurations. The ALADIN and HIRLAM Programme Managers also give some updates on the last important news at the consortia level. The new ALADIN and HIRLAM organisational charts are also provided, after the signing of the 5th ALADIN MoU and the HIRLAM-C MoU.
Information about new regular group video meetings has also been included in the list of events planned for 2016. The “Publications”page will be back in the seventh edition of the Newsletter.
I hope you enjoy reading the sixth ALADIN-HIRLAM Newsletter and thank the authors for their contributions.
|N°5, published on 31-08-2015||I am glad to provide you with the fifth edition of the combined Newsletter of the HIRLAM and ALADIN consortia. This edition is mainly dedicated to the “25th ALADIN Workshop & HIRLAM All Staff Meeting 2015” that took place on 13-16 April 2015 in Elsinore (Denmark), with additional several articles based on other work.
90 people from 23 countries gave more than 50 presentations and presented about 35 posters. Some working groups and many side meetings also took place during the week. The ALADIN Local Team Managers held their 18th meeting (the first one ever where all ALADIN partners were represented). The ALADIN CSSI and the HIRLAM Management Group had their annual coordination meeting on Friday 17, at the Danish Met Institute premises in Copenhagen.
Please consult the dedicated webpage on the aladin website for the agenda, the list of participants, the pdf files of the presentations and posters, the minutes of the discussions and working groups, some photos.
The videos of the presentations are also available, on a protected part of the aladin website : please use the "log in" buttom, at the top left under the horizontal menu on the aladin home page. Once identified, you have access to the "Partners only" part of the aladin website, including the videos. If you need the user/password to log in, just ask me !
A new part about “Publications” has tentatively been added in this newsletter, with the aim to announce or comment papers published in NWP specialised international journals. As this is the first time such a list is included in the Newsletter, the information used for it is likely still incomplete; hopefully, it will be better the next time.
I thank the authors for their contributions and hope you enjoy reading the fifth ALADIN-HIRLAM Newsletter.
|N°4, published on 27-02-2015||The forth edition of the combined Newsletter of the HIRLAM and ALADIN consortia is dedicated to a “Tour d’ALADIN & d’HIRLAM”, with contributions describing main achievements at our meteorological institutes in 2014. Finally a list of events that are planned for 2015 is added.
At the consortium level, 2014 saw the first joint meeting of the ALADIN General Assembly and the HIRLAM Council (Reading, 2nd of December) where a joint declaration was unanimously adopted by the Directors. It stresses the ALADIN/HIRLAM commitment to work together with the aim of forming one single consortium by the end of the 2016-2020 MoUs.
At this turning point for our consortia, we lost the one who started the merge between the ALADIN and the HIRLAM consortia, Jean-François Geleyn (see Piet Termonia’s tribute). Jean-François created ALADIN in 1991. He acted as ALADIN Program Manager, the main executive officer of the ALADIN Consortium, years before this position was officially defined in the ALADIN Memorandum of Understanding. Until 2010, he led the life of the ALADIN consortium.
On 8 January 2015, the ALADIN community lost its icon and beacon.
I thank the authors for their contributions and hope you enjoy the forth ALADIN-HIRLAM Newsletter ... and bear with me as it is the first combined Newsletter I did on my own. After 7 years as HIRLAM scientific secretary, Tilly said goodbye to us last December to join a new position at CGI in Rotterdam.
|N°3, published on 26-09-2014||The third edition of the combined Newsletter of the HIRLAM and ALADIN consortium is dedicated to the joint ALADIN/ HIRLAM Workshop/All Staff Meeting (ASM) that took place on 7-11 April 2014 in Bucharest, hosted by the National Meteorological Administration of Romania. Thanks to the contributors and enjoy reading !|
|N°2, published on 22-04-2014||We are happy to provide you with the second edition of the combined Newsletter of the HIRLAM and ALADIN consortium. This edition contains of a number of contributions focussing on deeply convective events, and one on erroneously simulated fog at sea in Harmonie. Furthermore you can find national contributions describing main achievements at several meteorological institutes, as well as an extended summary of a PhD thesis by Vanja Blažica focussing on divergence in limited area models. Finally a list of events that are planned for 2014 is added.
We hope you enjoy the second ALADIN-HIRLAM Newsletter! For additional information please visit the ALADIN and HIRLAM websites, or just ask the authors.
|N°1, published on 27-09-2013||This is the first edition of the combined Newsletter of the ALADIN and HIRLAM consortia. We decided to join forces because the researchers from both consortia are working closer and closer together. Furthermore, the number of contributions is continuously decreasing because we publish increasingly in peer reviewed literature.
This Newsletter is mainly devoted to presentations made by ALADIN and HIRLAM staff in the joint ALADIN/ HIRLAM Workshop/All Staff Meeting (ASM) that took place on 15-19 April 2013 in Reykjavik, hosted by the Icelandic Meteorological Organisation ...
