1st ANNOUNCEMENT - 20 years of Progress in Radar Altimetry
Dear Colleagues, please mark in your agenda:
The "20 years of Progress in Radar Altimetry" Symposium will take place from Monday 24 to Saturday 29 September 2012, in Venice-Lido, Italy.
Following on from the "15 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry" Symposium in 2006, deemed a very successful landmark by the participants and the readership of the Proceedings, we are now reaching the twenty year anniversary of the launch of ERS-1 and TOPEX/POSEIDON. To mark this occasion the European Space Agency, in collaboration with the French Space Agency, CNES, is organising an exceptional Symposium on "20 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry". This event will be sponsored by other partner agencies and organizations supporting the development of altimetry. Along with this symposium, several related events will take place on the same week, including the annual meeting of the Ocean Surface Topography Science Team (OSTST) and the International Doris Service (IDS) workshop, as well as other thematic workshops still to be organised, such as, Sea Level for Climate, Coastal Zone, Space for Hydrology, Argo, etc. These events will be held over 6 days, from 24 to 29 of September 2012, in Venice-Lido, Italy.
Please consider your participation at this exceptional event and reserve the week from 24 to 29 September 2012 in your agenda. For the symposium, a call for papers with detailed information and deadlines will be sent subsequently, along with the details of a dedicated web site to submit your contributions to be reviewed by the Scientific Committee. For OSTST and IDS meetings, additional information and call for contributions will be sent out and linked to the same website.
Looking forward to your participation at this exceptional scientific Symposium on "20 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry".
