--------------------
The Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN) announces a call for Sea Ice
Outlook (SIO) contributions to the August report (based on May, June, and July
data). The firm submission deadline is 11:59 p.m. (AKDT) on Monday, 10
August 2015.

The Sea Ice Outlook (SIO) provides an open process for those interested
in Arctic sea ice to share predictions and ideas about the monthly
September minimum sea ice extent. The monthly reports contain a variety
of perspectives from advanced numerical models to qualitative
perspectives from citizen scientists. All past contributors as well as
new participants are encouraged to submit Outlooks this year. A
post-season report will provide an in-depth analysis of factors driving
sea ice extent this summer as well as explore the scientific methods for
predicting seasonal ice extent. 

For the August Outlook report, pan-Arctic and regional outlooks will be
accepted and spatial forecasts and maps are particularly encouraged. A
short executive summary and summary of methods are required this year. 

Contributors should review the submission guidelines for detailed
instructions and templates including:

- Core requirements for pan-Arctic contributions,
- Additional (optional) items for pan-Arctic contributions,
- Regional Outlooks, and
- Figures and data.

Please note:
- Individuals submitting "public" contributions should self-identify as
such in their submission.

Detailed submission guidelines for contributions are available at:
http://www.arcus.org/sipn/sea-ice-outlook/2015/august/call.

All submissions should be sent to: sio2015 at arcus.org.

Submission deadline: 11:59 p.m. (AKDT) on Monday, 10 August 2015 (firm).
Contributions received after the deadline will be posted to the website
but not incorporated into the Outlook report or discussion.

In addition to the contributions for the monthly reports, "informal
contributions" that do not otherwise fit into the monthly report format
will be accepted throughout the season. These informal contributions
could include information on sea ice parameters other than extent and/or
for other time periods than what is included in the regular monthly
reports.
 
For more information about informal contributions, see:
http://www.arcus.org/sipn/sea-ice-outlook/2015/informal-contributions.
