The organizing committee (Richard Seager, John Chiang, Jeffrey Shaman, Steve Zebiak, and Adam Sobel) expresses its appreciation to the National Science Foundation, as well as to the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, the Earth Institute, and the Departments of Earth and Environmental Science and Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics (all at Columbia University), for their generous sponsorship of the symposium. They also thank Virginia DiBlasi, Naomi Naik, and Alessandra Giannini for their tremendous help in planning and logistics.
