The joint 28th ALADIN Wk & HIRLAM ASM 2018 will be held on the premises of Météo-France in Toulouse during the third week of April 2018.

  • 4 full days (16-19 April) for the opening session, the thematic sessions, the posters session, some Working Group discussions, the LTM meeting, an official dinner and a public conference,
  • 20 April 2018 : HMG/CSSI meeting (whole day), for HMG/CSSI members only. Some side meetings will also take place during that week, as well as the usual ALADIN LTM meeting. This joint Wk/ASM obtained the label "EuroScience Open Forum 2018 - TOULOUSE, EUROPEAN CITY OF SCIENCE".

A first draft agenda is proposed, with a list of participants and of posters.

Registration is still possible but the draft agenda is already very dense and there is no guarantee that any additional proposed presentation could fit into the agenda.

Model Dev., 11, 257-281, https://doi.org/10.5194/gmd-11-257-2018, 2018.

The purpose of this paper is (i) to define the ALADIN System in relation to the global counterparts IFS and ARPEGE, (ii) to explain the notion of the CMCs, (iii) to document their most recent versions, and (iv) to illustrate the process of the validation and the porting of these configurations to the operational forecast suites of the partner institutes of the ALADIN consortium.

Regular 22nd General Assembly and 3rd joint ALADIN GA and HIRLAM Council

The ALADIN GA and the HIRLAM Council met in the Polish NMS premises in Krakow (Poland) on November 21-22, 2017 : the 22nd ALADIN GA, then the LACE Council and the HIRLAM Council in parallel, then the 3rd joint ALADIN GA - HIRLAM C meeting.

  • Besides the usual items on their agendas, the assemblies approved the Rolling Work Plan 2018 (and its completely renewed format), and committed the resources of their NMS to realised it : the HAC/PAC was asked to further discuss its scope and to follow its realisation.
  • The convergence roadmap (towards a single ALADIN/HIRLAM consortium after 2020) was debated and guidelines for the next steps were given to the PMs and the HAC/PAC.
  • Due to lack of time, the "Tour d’ALADIN" could not be presented : the slides are on-line : these 2017 highlights sent by the LTMs will be detailed in the ALADIN-HIRLAM Newsletter n°10, to be published end of January 2018.
  • The ALADIN budget for 2018 was approved, with a new position (20%F.T.E for a DA coordinator) : the position is opened.
  • A new matrix of the ALADIN consortium was approved after changes in some positions.
