 About ESOF Toulouse 2018

The biennial European event, EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) will take place in Toulouse, "European City of Science" from 9 to 14 July 2018. "Sharing science: towards new horizons" will be the motto of this ESOF 2018 edition, a 6-in-1 event including various sections “Science”, “Science policy”, “Science to Business”, “Careers” and “Media & Science Communication” and a “Science in the City” programme dedicated to the general public. A series of themes covering all fields of science and their relations with society are covered by this multidisciplinary event through conferences, exhibitions and satellite events.


Notes :

[1La qualité des prévisions météorologiques ne cesse de s’améliorer, notamment grâce aux nouvelles observations disponibles, à l’augmentation de la puissance de calcul et à une meilleure représentation des processus en jeu dans les systèmes de simulation numérique.
Malgré ces progrès, l’incertitude reste un facteur inhérent au processus de prévision météorologique. Depuis quelques années ce caractère incertain est désormais communiqué : les prévisions sont assorties d’un indice de confiance ou, dans certains cas, plusieurs scénarios possibles sont évoqués. Quelles sont les causes de ces incertitudes ? Comment expliquer la contradiction apparente qui existe entre les tentatives actuelles de prévisions à échéance de plusieurs mois ou saisons, voire davantage, et l’impossibilité de prévoir précisément le temps au-delà de quelques jours ? Quelle information utile les utilisateurs peuvent-ils retirer d’une prévision incertaine ? Voici quelques questions que nous aborderons durant cette conférence.
