The Chinese Meteorological Society, the Korean Meteorological Society, and the Meteorological Society of Japan have been organizing joint conference on meteorology since 2005. After the sixth conference held in China in 2013, the three societies agreed to expand the conference and encourage participations from Asian countries, with a new conference title of the Asian Conference on Meteorology (ACM). The conference has been held for every two years, hosted by the three societies taking turn. The first conference was held in Kyoto, Japan in October 2015, and the second was held in Busan, Korea in October 2017. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the physical conference was paused by four years since 2017, and now, the third conference will be held virtually in November 2022.
The purpose of the joint conference is to enhance the development of atmospheric science, promote international academic exchange, organize regional activities in the field of meteorology, and create an academic exchange platform for meteorological societies of Asian countries.
