Advances in Extremes in Water Science - 13 July, 2020 - Virtual meeting Workshop

While it will not be possible to hold the Summer School on "Extremes in Water Science" in 2020, we would like to give a taste of the Summer School through a half-day online workshop in which we will be able to hear about what is exciting in extreme event research from the three lecturers of the School, Simon Papalexiou, Ilaria Prosdocimi, and Richard Vogel. They will be providing some vision in the field and opportunities of interactions, while we wait for July 2021.

If you would like to participate, we only ask you to register at this link  by filling out the dedicated form. Registered participants will receive by email a link to the online event, held using Microsoft Teams videoconferencing system.  

Below is the program of the Workshop and attached the event flyer. We look forward to this opportunity to know one another better.
