Modelling of the meteor shower activity became a routine process in
recent years. Predictions of the Leonid outbursts and storms between
1998 and 2002 as well as Leonids in 2009 and Draconinds in 2011 were
confirmed by observations. All these cases show that timing of the
meteor activity is usually successful but the rate of the meteors
remains rather unpredictable. The goal of this session is to bring
together theoreticians, who model the meteor shower activity, and
observers to discuss recent observational results, their implications
for the models and future prospects on this field. Talks on
observational techniques are also welcomed.
