We regret that we must cancel EWOC 2009 meeting. Unfortunately, there were not sufficient number of participants registered for the conference within the deadlines to cover necessary expenses as well as to provide full program justifying the participant's travel expenses.

We apologize especially to those registered for the meeting, the registration fee will be fully refunded by the American Meteorological Society. Judith Ziemnik ( will be taking care of refunding your registration fee.

We are sorry that not so many of those submitting the abstracts for the conference have registered finally.

Thank you for your understanding and I apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused.

On behalf of local organizers,

Tomas Halenka
