CALL FOR ABSTRACTS


for the "25 years of Progress in Radar Altimetry" Symposium,

which will take place from Monday 24 to Saturday 29 September 2018, in Ponta Delgada, São Miguel Island, Azores Archipelago (Portugal).

 


25 Years of Prorgress in Radar Altimetry
Following on from the "15 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry" Symposium in 2006 and the "20 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry" Symposium in 2012, in Venice-Lido, Italy, both deemed very successful landmarks by the participants and the readership of the Proceedings, we are now at the twenty-five 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 "25 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry". This event will also be sponsored by other partner agencies and organisations supporting the development of altimetry. Along with this symposium, several related events will take place on the same week, including the annual meeting of theOcean Surface Topography Science Team (OSTST) and the International Doris Service (IDS) workshop. These events will be held over 6 days, from 24 to 29 of September 2018, in Ponta Delgada, São Miguel Island, Azores Archipelago (Portugal).

Please consider your participation at this exceptional event and reserve the week from 24 to 29 September 2018 in your agenda.

For the Symposium, the abstracts submission opens today. You are kindly invited to submit your abstract(s) not later than 1 March 2018.

Please link to http://www.altimetry2018.org to get familiar with the Themes & Objectives and the type of presentation to request (Oral Keynote, Oral Review, Oral or Poster) and to submit your (max 500 words) abstract(s).

Abstracts will be selected by the Scientific Committee on the basis of their scientific content and relevance to the themes of the symposium. Authors will be notified of the decision and the type of presentation (Oral Keynote, Oral Review, Oral or Poster) by 27 April 2018.

For OSTST and IDS meetings, additional information and call for contributions will be sent out separately.

Looking forward to another great "slow-time" event like the 15 and 20 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry held in Venice in 2006 and 2012,
an exceptional scientific Symposium on "25 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry"!

Looking forward to your participation!
