The conference is divided into 3 main sessions, all of which will be introduced by invited talks given by leading experts in the field. Session 4 is open to contributions from all other fields of research related to extremes, climate and environment.

1. Statistical models of extremes
– extreme value theory, models incorporating non-stationarity/covariates
– spatial, regional and multivariate models of extremes
– applications of extreme value theory for estimating probabilities of precipitation extremes and floods

2. Floods and precipitation extremes in Central Europe – recent advances
– synoptic causes of precipitation extremes
– relationships between precipitation extremes and floods
– simulation of precipitation extremes in NWP models, case studies

3. Effects of climate variability and change on precipitation extremes and floods
– analysis of long-term variability of precipitation extremes and floods
– precipitation extremes at different time scales in climate models (biases and changes)
– climate change scenarios for precipitation and their applications in flood and drought assessment studies

4. Open session on extremes, climate and environment

Abstracts (200-300 words) should be submitted using web application ( not later than May 15, 2013. Please select to which session you wish to submit your presentation.
