*Dear colleagues,We would like to remind you that the registration deadline
(31 March 2018) for the Polar Prediction Workshop 2018 is approaching
quickly. The 5th Polar Prediction Workshop will be held in Montreal,
Canada, on 7-8-9 May 2018. To register and/or submit an abstract, please
use this form <https://ppw2018.com/registration/>. More information on the
logistics of the event can be found here <https://ppw2018.com/>.The
workshop will focus on :- polar predictability from subseasonnal to
interannual timescales- sea ice prediction- operational and research
efforts- end user needs and the capacity of the scientific community to
address themIn addition, reviews for the Sea Ice Outlook project and other
initiatives related to polar predictions will be discussed. We also propose
a new activity for 2018:  An important outcome of the Workshop will be a
consensus forecast statement synthesizing predictions of (i) September mean
Arctic sea ice extent, and (ii) sea ice conditions during the Arctic
shipping season for key regions plus the Northwest Passage and Northern Sea
Route shipping corridors. Participants are invited to contribute to any or
all of these forecasts using a form that will be circulated to registrants
and posted online, and are encouraged to highlight these predictions in
their presentations.Operational forecasters and forecast users are warmly
invited to participate.Deadline for abstract submission: March 31, 2018.
