We also plan to have special sessions on the International ACRE (Atmospheric Circulation Reconstructions over the Earth) and SOCRATES (The Southern Ocean Clouds, Radiation, Aerosol Transport Experiment Study) initiatives.
Contributions will be accepted in the form of abstracts to be presented in the conference as oral presentations or posters. The abstract must be submitted on-line from December 2014 to March 2015
