The week in Switzerland started on the Sunday afternoon with an introductory talk by Christopher Bretherton. Unfortunately we missed the largest part of this talk due to a cancelled flight in the morning. Luckily the rest of the talks during the summer school were just as interesting. There were a couple of different sessions, the topics they covered were: high-resolution observations, high-resolution models: processes and projections, extreme events, and exploitation of emerging hardware architectures. The presentation of my poster was scheduled in the session on high-resolution modelling and turned out to be very well visited (Presentation title: What controls the cloud size distribution of continental shallow cumulus cloud populations?).

In general were all the participants really interested in each others’ work and it was very nice to hear about so many different topics. On two afternoons there were workshops organized. They consisted of hands-on exercises on the topics of the lectures and were very helpful in getting familiar with the presented subjects. Overall, the summer school was instructive and useful, and I’m very happy that I got the chance to participate.
