The scope of the 28th Conference on Weather Analysis and Forecasting and the 24th Conference on Numerical Weather Prediction Conferences is not constrained solely to the 2017 Annual Meeting theme, and we solicit papers and posters from the research and operational weather forecasting community on the following topics:

    Weather Analysis and Forecasting
        Weather phenomena
            Winter weather
            Tropical weather
            Severe storms
            Mesoscale meteorology
            High impact local weather
        Forecasting techniques
            Aviation forecasting
            Hydrologic forecasting
            Fire weather analysis and forecasting
            Impact of new data types and observational platforms
        Forecasting tools
            New applications
            Satellite applications
            Quantitative precipitation forecasts
            Testbed, proving ground, and research-to-operations activities
            Observational and NWP tools to facilitate decision support services, including social media
        Societal impacts of weather
            Impacts of extreme weather events on society, economy, and public health
            Linkages between weather analysis, forecasting, NWP, impact-based decision support services derived from these topics, and continued preparation of NOAA’s “Weather-Ready Nation”
        Results from the OLYMPEX field campaign
        Results from other recent field campaigns: WFIP, PECAN, SHOUT, VORTEX-SE, TCI-ONR, and others.
    Numerical Weather Prediction
        Data assimilation techniques
        Model development and application
            Forecast verification methods and performance
            Updates on global and mesoscale models
            Improving model performance and efficiency
            New or improved parameterizations
            Local application of regional models
            Regional climate downscaling approaches or short-range climate prediction
        New ensemble generation or probabilistic-based forecasting techniques
        The National Earth System Prediction Capability Agenda for Subseasonal to Seasonal Prediction (S2S)

We also solicit papers for the Ronald W. Przybylinski Memorial Session on Elevated Convection. Mr. Przybylinski was employed for 35 years in the National Weather Service, serving as the first Science and Operations Officer at the St. Louis office from 1991 through his death in March 2015. He received the NWA Operational Achievement award in 1989, the NWA Fujita Award for research in 2003, the Charles L. Mitchell award from the AMS in 2012 for outstanding service by a weather forecaster, and the NOAA Distinguished Career Award in 2013. Ron was committed to discovering more about the atmosphere through research, and applying newfound knowledge to improve the forecast process. This session will focus on new advances in predicting elevated convection, with particular emphasis placed on results from two recently concluded field campaigns, the Plains Elevated Convection at Night (PECAN) and Program for Research on Elevated Convection with Intense Precipitation (PRECIP).  However, contributions are not limited to Midwestern convection.

Authors are welcome to submit papers on the full range of topics solicited above, in addition to other cross-cutting applications that blend WAF/NWP topics with other areas of research or applied science.
