UChicago DoGS, STATMOS, and RDCEP present:




Applications are open until the end of the day April 23rd, and applicants will be informed of our decision by May 15th.


Rossbypalooza costs $300. Update, 2/9/16: Thanks to the generous support of the National Science Foundation, Rossbypalooza is now free for all participants. This includes tuition, housing in Hyde Park, breakfast, and lunch. We have funding available for travel reimbursement, especially for groups underrepresented in climate science and statistics (e.g., women, people of color, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ scientists/statisticians) and for statisticans in the STATMOS network. Please indicate your membership of any of these groups, as well as your desire for travel reimbursement, in the application form.


Rossbypalooza will be held on the University of Chicago campus in Chicago's historic Hyde Park neighborhood. Midway Airport is connected directly to Hyde Park by the 55 bus line. For those flying into O'Hare, take the Blue line to downtown Chicago, and then transfer to the 6 bus, which goes to Hyde Park.

All events will be held at the Henry Hinds Laboratory for Geophysical Sciences on the University Campus. Lectures will be held in the ground-floor Goldsmith Room.


All students will be housed in double rooms on the University of Chicago campus in Hyde Park. If you have any questions or special housing needs, please contact us directly at rossbypalooza@gmail.com.


Breakfast will be provided in the university cafeteria each morning, and lunch will be catered in the Goldsmith Room. A welcome dinner will be provided on Sunday the 24th, and a celebratory dinner will be held on the last night, Friday the 29th. On all other nights, students are responsible for their own dinner. Hyde Park has many wonderful restaurants, including Seoul Corea, the Nile, Yusho, Maravilla's, Snail Thai, Rajun Cajun, Noodles, Etc. and the one and only Medici's. For late-nighters, there's a 24-hour diner, Clarke's.
