We are looking forward to celebrating the BSC staff annual meeting this year.

As in the previous edition, the event will be online and shorter.

The event will begin on December 15th at 10:30 am. We will send you a link nearer the time so you can connect.

Even more than normal, we hope that as many BSC staff as possible will be able to attend and participate.

You can participate by telling us:

What you would like to know about?

Let us know which subjects you find interesting to be incorporated into the BSC directors’ presentations.
Deadline exceeded

What would you like to listen to?

What you would like to share?

We would like to know more about your work, so we have booked one hour of the Annual Meeting to listen to 6 BSC employees that will explain what they do. We encourage you to be one of them.

What I would like to explain

Coming soon

 BSC Talks

We have booked time for 6 employees to explain in 6 minutes what you do at BSC.

The event will be VIRTUAL but the BSC Talks will be presented from the studio where the event is taking place.

We would like you to make short, attractive presentations (6 minutes) so all the BSC staff know what you do.

You could be one of those to go up the stage, and we will help you to prepare it.

What will you need to do?

  1. Let us know about what you would like to explain.
    • Send us a short video (landscape) of 45 seconds’ maximum explaining what you would like to present at
    • State your name, department, research group and a provisional title for your talk.
    • Deadline: November 29th.
  2. All the BSC staff will vote for the 6 most interesting proposals.
    • All videos will be available at the web page and the voting process will be open. Each employee will be able to vote up to 3 proposals.
  3. If your proposal is one of the chosen ones:
    • A training session will be organized for the 6 most voted.
  4. Prepare a 6 minutes’ presentation.
  5. The best presentation of December 15th will be awarded!

Directors’ presentation of 2022

We would like to know what subjects you are interested in so as to incorporate them in the directors’ presentation of the center. Fill in this form with your questions.

Speaker: Matteo De Felice,Climate Modelling laboratory, ENEA, Italy

Abstract: Climate Models are sophisticate tools able to simulate the interactions among various components of the Earth system (atmosphere, oceans, bio-sphere, etc.). Those tools are nowadays used for many purposes: to improve the knowledge of our planet, to analyse the projections for the future climate and to forecast the climate at multiple time-scales for a wide range of applications. In the last decade the use of climate ensembles (and multi-model ensembles) has become very common, the dimensionality of climate datasets has increased drastically (thanks also to a general increment of temporal and spatial resolutions of models). Unfortunately, this rise of the dimensionality of datasets did not coincide with the development of techniques designed to cope effectively with this massive amount of information. 
Bio: Matteo De Felice is staff scientist at the Climate Modelling laboratory at ENEA, Italy. He received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science & Engineering at the Università “Roma Tre” in 2011. His research is focused on the extraction and use of information from climate forecasts for the application in the energy sector.
