Alleen Engels - The purpose of the workshop is to discuss progress, challenges and future directions of the representation of atmospheric convection in weather and climate models. The 4.5-day workshop will discuss all aspects of our ability to observe, understand, model and parametrize the key aspects of cumulus convection.

Day 1 will be devoted to current challenges. Day 2 will focus on the organization of convection, while Day 3 will look at convective transitions, such as the diurnal cycle or that from trade-wind to equatorial convection. Day 4 will discuss stochastic approaches and implications of reaching the parametrization grey zone. Day 5 will focus on strategies for future parameterisation development.
