The 4th International Workshop on Modeling the Ocean (IWMO2012) will be held at the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) Yokohama Institute for the period from 21 to 24 May 2012, hosted by JAMSTEC. Yokohama is a beautiful seaport city of Japan near the capital city of Japan, Tokyo.

The IWMO evolves from the POM users group meetings, but it is open to the ocean modeling community at large. The IWMO2012 solicits abstracts for presentations at the workshop on all aspects of ocean and coupled air-wave-sea, ice, current-sediment, and climate modeling: processes, analysis and prediction. The earth system is inter-connected on a broad range of temporal and spatial scales, and we welcome coastal, regional, basin-scale and global studies, as well as interdisciplinary topics. As in the past workshops, we particularly encourage participations from young scientists - graduate students and postdocs, and will again host the Outstanding Young Scientist Awards (OYSA) competition. Papers presented at the workshop will be eligible for submissions to the IWMO-4 Special Issue to be published by Ocean Dynamics (2010 Impact Factor: 1.677).
