Call For Papers

The Fifteenth International Conference on Atmospheric Electricity (ICAE 2014) will be held in Norman, Oklahoma, USA, 15-20 June 2014.  Under the auspices of the IUGG/IAMAS International Commission on Atmospheric Electricity, the ICAE brings together scientists from all over the world to discuss the latest research on atmospheric electricity.  The previous four conferences have been in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2011,, Beijing, China (2007), Versailles, France (2003), and Huntsville, Alabama, USA (1999).

Co-hosts for ICAE 2014 will be the NOAA/National Severe Storms Laboratory and the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences of the University of Oklahoma.  Both are housed in the National Weather Center in Norman, Oklahoma.  Oklahoma provides visitors many opportunities to sample the heritage of both its Native American and cowboy roots.

Papers are solicited on any topic related to atmospheric or near-space electricity, but papers are particularly solicited on the following topics:

Fair-Weather Electrical Properties of the Atmosphere
Atmospheric Ions, Clusters, and Nanoparticles
Non-Thunderstorm Electrified Clouds
Global Electrical Circuit
Cloud Electrification Processes
