Year 2013 is a special year for the Mathematics of Planet Earth (known as MPE2013 http://mpe2013.org/). MPE2013 is dedicated for challenges facing our planet that is the setting for dynamic processes of all sorts, including atmospheric processes that determine our weather and climate. The challenges facing our planet and our civilization are multidisciplinary and multifaceted, and the mathematical sciences play a central role in the scientific effort to understand and to deal with these challenges. Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences (RIMS) of Kyoto University is one of the partners of MPE2013, and this conference is a part of the RIMS Project Research in 2013, "Fluid Dynamics of Large-Scale Flows".
