We are pleased to announce the 2017 International Workshop on ENSO complexity at the IBS Center for Climate Physics at Pusan National University, Busan, South Korea.

The workshop will be held from October 16th- 20th, 2017.

The main goal of the workshop will be to write a review paper on ENSO complexity, which will be submitted to a peer-reviewed journal. To achieve this goal, the first two days (October 16th-17th) of the meeting will be dedicated to science presentations on a variety of subjects, ranging from ENSO theory, time-scale interactions, ENSO flavors, inter basin connections, ENSO nonlinearity, past and future sensitivity, observational analysis, and ENSO metrics.

From October 18th-20th, the workshop participants will then split up into a number of writing teams, each focusing on one section of the review paper. The detailed logistics of this activity will be announced after the registration deadline.

For registration (deadline May 15th), please submit your name, affiliation, an abstract of your presentation (for the first day) and your preferred writing team among the following

1) ENSO Time-scale interactions 

    a) Observational Evidence
Theory, Concepts, and Modeling
2) ENSO flavors
    a) Observational Evidence
Theory, Concepts, and Modeling
3) ENSO nonlinearity
    a) Observational Evidence
Theory, Concepts, and Modeling
4) Indian and Atlantic Ocean effects on ENSO
    a) Observational Evidence
Theory, Concepts,
and Modeling
5) past and future sensitivity of ENSO
