Registration

Registration is now closed

The 2011 International Symposium on “Weather Radar and Hydrology” (WRaH) will be held in the UK at the University of Exeter from 18-21 April 2011.  Registration costs have been kept to a minimum to encourage wide participation.  In particular the low cost for Full Registration (Option A, including accommodation and meals, is designed to attract a vibrant community atmosphere over the five days). 

En suite accommodation, based on single occupancy of a double, will be provided on campus at the recently built, and well equipped, Holland Hall.  The Symposium Programme encompasses internationally renowned keynote speakers, oral and poster presentations, and a series of events.

The evening Ice-Breaker event is being generously hosted by the Met Office at their Headquarters on the outskirts of Exeter. It will include a tour of the Operational Forecasting Suite and of the new development dual-polarisation weather radar.

On the Tuesday afternoon there is a field trip, with guest speakers, to the pretty village of Lynmouth on the north Devon coast. This was the scene of devastating floods in August 1952 that impacted on subsequent flood defence policy in the UK: how weather radar now helps mitigate against such disasters will be discussed.

On the Wednesday evening there will be a Gala Dinner held on the University of Exeter campus.

Symposium papers (of 6 page length) will be peer-reviewed and published as part of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) “Red Book” series of Symposium Proceedings.  This book will be posted out to you following the conference and for this reason please ensure you include this address as your correspondence address.

All of the above is included within the cost for full symposium registration.

Accommodation included within the Conference Package is en suite at the University of Exeter based on single occupancy of rooms.  The rooms are within the beautiful grounds of the University of Exeter approximately 10 minutes walk from the Conference facilities. 

The University of Exeter is set within 350 acres of woodland, lakes and parks, and the comprehensive range of sports and leisure and facilities available.  If you would like to extend your stay beyond the dates of the Conference at the University of Exeter please book the extra nights directly through the University of Exeter website at http://vmkineticsweb01.ex.ac.uk/shortbreaks/BnB/Step1.aspx

Option C gives you the option to register and attend individual parts of the symposium.
