WCRP SPARC is sponsoring a 3-day training school on “Climate Data Science & Artificial Intelligence in the Global South” from October 29 to 31 at the University of Rwanda – College of Science and Technology. The training school is scheduled to follow the WCRP Open Science Conference in Kigali from October 22 to 28, which will attract climate researchers from around the world.

The training school is organized by Dr Mohamadou A. Diallo, Prof. Amadou T. Gaye, Prof. Michaela I. Hegglin and Prof. Ted Shepherd as part of the SPARC Outreach Panel in collaboration with the University of Rwanda. We are targeting Early-Career Scientists (i.e. BSc, MSc and PhD students, as well

Participation in the training school is free of charge. Coffee breaks, lunches and accommodation are also included, as well as a social evening. Financial assistance is available for those who need to cover the cost of flight changes for at least a limited number of ECSs.

The deadline for applications is October 15, 2023. For applications, please send an email to Mohamadou A. Diallo ( at Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany and include information on your background, university, country of origin as well as how you think this training school will help you in your current or future projects.
