These sessions will give WGI AR5 authors and scientists not involved in WGI AR5 the opportunity to (1) showcase the results of the WGI AR5 assessment, (2) provide more recent science results published after March 15, 2013, the cut-off date for WGI AR5, and (3) take a look at future scientific challenges.

Furthermore, a press conference will take place on Wednesday 30 April 2014 at 12:15-13:15. A recording of the press conference can be found here.
