18th International Conference on Clouds and Precipitation (ICCP2020)

Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology/Ministry of Earth Sciences (Govt. of India), Pune, India is hosting the 18th International Conference on Clouds and Precipitation (ICCP2020). ICCP will be held for the first time in Asia.

The ICCP conferences are organized every 4 years by the International Commission on Clouds and Precipitation (ICCP) together with a host institution. ICCP is a commission of the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS), an association of IUGG (International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics). ICCP conferences have a long history and information on earlier ICCP conferences are available at

Conference Venue:
JW Marriot Hotel (

S.B. Road, Pune, Maharashtra, India 411 053
Conference dates 3-7 August 2020
