From Barbara Emery (emery@ucar.edu)

Student registrations for the CEDAR Workshop June 28 - July 02 at the Eldorado Hotel in Santa Fe, NM are due on-line Friday May 15. Late fees ($50) will be assessed starting Monday May 18, because a rooming list for the student housing at Fort Marcy Suites is due soon. Even students who are doing their own housing should register early. Registrations for non-students are due Friday June 5, and late fees will be implemented on Monday June 8.

The Student Workshop is on Sunday 28 June, and the CEDAR Workshop ends at 5 PM Thursday 02 July. Register on the CEDAR wiki site at: http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/ Click on 'Workshops', then on '2009 Workshop', then on 'Register', then on '2009 CEDAR Workshop On-Line Registration'. New registrants will be assigned wiki logins (FName or first initial, last name) to then be able to edit the workshop wiki site to upload their presentations or whatever. CEDAR Workshop attendees from 2007 and 2008, and CEDAR DB users already have logins.

The agenda lists the tutorial speakers, the times and locations of individual workshops, and several science highlights. Click on 'Agenda' instead of 'Register'.


(2) EISCAT Workshop 3 to 7 Aug 2009, registrations due 15 May.


From Michael Rietveld (mike@eiscat.uit.no)

Deadlines for abstract and registration for the 14th international EISCAT Workshop are Friday 15 May 2009.

The department of Physics and Technology at the University of Tromso is proud to invite our friends and colleagues to the 14th international EISCAT Workshop. The conference will be held at Rica Ishavshotell in Tromso, Norway, from the 3rd to the 7th of August, 2009.

See http://uit.no/fysikk/eiscat2009ws/

The EISCAT radars, constructed for investigation and research on the aurora, upper atmosphere, ionosphere, magnetosphere and the solar wind, are situated in Northern Scandinavia and on Svalbard (http://www.eiscat.se/). Over the years, these incoherent scatter radars have proven to be an instrumental cornerstone in ground-based, high-latitude space research. Space weather and the issue of climate change have become increasingly important for society and the EISCAT community has provided the possibility to use EISCAT data in such studies by operating the EISCAT Svalbard Radar continuously for most months during the International Polar Year.

Abstracts are solicited from themes including the middle atmosphere, auroral phenomena, ionosphere and thermosphere, solar wind and magnetosphere, structure and dynamics of the polar cap and cusp, meteors, and ionospheric heating. We also welcome abstracts on space weather, space debris and results from multi-instrumental campaigns, including rockets and satellites. There will also be sessions on new and future developments, including new radar plans and techniques (e.g. EISCAT_3D, AMISR and the new Antarctic radar). Oral or poster contributions are welcome.
