Following the November 2015 Cloud Working Week hosted by SMHI in Norköping for the ALADIN-HIRLAM consortium, a Cloud Working Week was organized by Meteo-France in January 2017 in Toulouse. It took place at the Météopole Centre International de Conférences from Monday 16th January to Wednesday 18th January

Find below the program and the presentations :
