Sponsors and Organizers

The Fourth Symposium on Prediction of the Madden-Julian Oscillation is organized by the AMS Committee on Tropical Meteorology and is sponsored by the American Meteorological Society.

Call for Papers

The theme for the 2016 AMS Annual Meeting, “Earth System Science in Service to Society”, weaves the many parts of AMS into a common core. Emphasizing the academic and research strength of AMS, the theme also connects that research to the benefits that society gains from our science. AMS merges the physical, chemical, and biological study of the Earth with human-centered “domains of action”: (1) Observing, (2) Analysis and research leading to understanding, (3) Modeling and prediction, and (4) Social sciences – how people deal with Earth. “Service to Society” explicitly evokes the integrated and complementary government and commercial enterprise that the AMS has done so much to foster over the last decade.  The 2016 meeting integrates AMS’ proud, nearly 100-year history of making a positive difference in the lives of our citizens by continually communicating the advances of its science research to the public and policy makers. 

The symposium will include sessions focusing on all aspects of the MJO, including:

  • Societal impacts of the MJO, including the agricultural and energy sectors
  • Tropical–extratropical interactions with the MJO
  • MJO modulation of tropical cyclones
  • Methods for identification and prediction of the MJO
  • Analysis of observations from the DYNAMO/CINDY field campaign
  • Representation of the MJO in numerical models
  • Theoretical studies of the MJO’s dynamics
  • Climate change and the MJO
  • Air–sea interactions in the MJO

Student Award Opportunities

The MJO Symposium Organizers are pleased to offer need-based travel grants for students. They will also conduct a competition for the most outstanding student papers from both posters and oral presentations. Students must enter the competition when they submit their abstract and they must be presenting their own work as first author.
