The joint 27th ALADIN Wk & HIRLAM ASM 2017 will be held on the premises of the Finnish Meteorological Institute in Helsinki (see How to find FMI) during the first week of April 2017 :

  • 3-6 April :joint Wk& ASM,
  • 7 April : HMG/CSSI meeting.

Some side meetings will also take place during that week, as well as the usual ALADIN LTM meeting.

For accommodation, please consult the instructions for booking hotels (this material was prepared by FMI planner Heidi Aaltonen, heidi.aaltonen"at"

it is still possible to register to the Wk/ASM, including your proposal for poster before 24 March 2017. No additional presentations can be added to the agenda.
