General Description 
This conference will bring together atmospheric scientists, oceanographers and paleoclimatologists with interests in interannual to multidecadal climate variability and its predictability and scientists who study the socio-economic impacts of climate variability. The focus will be on the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), which is a poorly understood yet dominant pattern of atmospheric circulation variability.
