IPC14 India Virtual Workshop took place on May 12th, 2023
On behalf of the Organizing Committee of IPC14 India virtual workshop, we extend our appreciation to all the participants. It was an honor to have such a distinguished group of experts from various organizations come together and discuss precipitation science and applications. There were a total 168 participants from 13 countries in academia, industry and governmental and non-profit research institutes.
The IPC14 India pre-conference virtual workshop is part of the 14th International Precipitation Conference. It focused on the IPC14 theme "Emerging directions in precipitation science and applications: going beyond" with a specific emphasis on the Indian region and associated societal impacts of precipitation-related hazards. The workshop brought together scientists and practitioners from leading research organizations in India, to provide a platform to discuss past and present efforts as well as challenges faced by each. The goal is to define together research directions in precipitation science and applications, and plan future initiatives with an emphasis on encouraging collaborations between different communities.
