The 15th International Conference on Clouds and Precipitation organized by the International Commission on Clouds and Precipitation (ICCP) and sponsored by the International Association for Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), will be held 7-11 July 2008 at the Melia Hotel in Cancún, Mexico.

Papers are solicited on theoretical, observational and numerical modeling studies of cloud and precipitation physics, cloud chemistry and cloud dynamics. The preliminary program includes sessions on:

1. Stratus Clouds
2. Convective Clouds
3. Severe Storms
4. Cirrus Clouds
5. Mixed phase Clouds
6. Pollution-Precipitation Interactions
7. Radiative Properties of Clouds
8. Effects of Clouds on Climate
9. Measurements of IN and CCN

10. Instrumentation Development and Applications of Cloud Physics
11. Others

Several special session on recent field projects (e.g. RICO, CR-AVE, TC4,...) are being planned.

Abstracts should be submitted online by 1 December 2007, indicating a preference for session. Authors of accepted abstracts will be notified via e-mail by 15 January 2008.

All extended abstracts are to be submitted electronically and will be available online. Instructions for formatting extended manuscripts for the preprint CD-ROM will be posted on this site. Manuscripts (up to 3 MB) must be submitted electronically by 1 March 2008. A submission fee of $100 USD is solicited at that time and will be considered towards the total registration fee for the conference. Please note that the submitted paper will not be inserted in the Proceedings if the fee is not received. This fee is requested for each paper submitted, but only one fee will be credited per each registered participant, in the event that one registrant submits more than one paper.

Hotel and registration information are available on the Conference web site.
