From Barbara Emery (emery at ucar.edu) and the joint GEM-CEDAR Taskforce.

The deadline has been extended from 15 January to 24 January to submit a joint CEDAR-GEM Workshop description under the theme of 'Exploring Connections in the Geospace System'. Further details are in the previous email of 24 November at http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/Community:Email_24nov10. A wiki login is necessary in order to access the joint workshop description at http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/Special:CEDAR-GEM_Joint_Workshop_Proposal_Form?status=propose which is located under the main page of the 2011 CEDAR-GEM Workshop at http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/2011_Workshop:Main. All who have a CEDAR DB login and most who have attended CEDAR Workshops since 2007 have wiki logins. Please request a wiki login from emery@ucar.edu or from cedar_db@ucar.edu if needed.


(3) Jicamarca International Research Experience Program - JIREP 2011 for 10 weeks in summer - applications due 31 January 2011.


From Jorge Chau (jchau@jro.igp.gob.pe) and Angela Calle (jirep@jro.igp.gob.pe).

The students will work with staff engineers and scientists on projects related to ongoing research or instrumentation development programs. Research may be conducted in neutral atmospheric and ionospheric science as well as radar/radio instrumentation and software development. Given its location, frequency of operation, and array system, most Jicamarca Radio Observatory's research capabilities are unique. Besides the unique research capabilities where students are welcomed to propose and run their own experiments, Jicamarca offers a good opportunity to get hands-on-experience on different aspects of radar systems, from changing the antenna connections, improving RF components of the system, to develop sophisticated acquisition and processing programs. A side benefit of the program is that students will get to know Peru, heir to ancient cultures and rich colonial tradition.

This program is offered to junior/senior undergraduate and/or first and second year graduate students and will cover the travel expenses (to and from Lima) as well as a reasonable stipend. Given that the Observatory is located outside Lima city, transportation will be provided.
