(1) Deadlines for CEDAR Workshop (non-student registration, workshop descriptions, student air flights).


From Barbara Emery (emery at ucar.edu).

There are several upcoming deadlines for the annual CEDAR Workshop in Santa Fe, New Mexico, June 24-29 at http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/2012_Workshop:Main

Students attending the CEDAR Workshop who get air fare reimbursement should have their flights to Albuquerque bought three weeks before the meeting. Please email the flight information to Carrie Appel at cappel at ucar.edu by Friday June 1 (tomorrow). Those who are driving, should also let Carrie know.

Non-students should register by Friday June 1 since a late fee of $75 will be imposed starting Monday June 4. The hotel block at the Eldorado for rooms at $139/night plus tax are available until Friday June 8. Students should already have their registrations and their lodging arrangements. All poster slots are booked up (and the deadline is past).

A workshop booklet will be prepared from the individual workshop pages so conveners should have their agendas as well as any updates to their workshop descriptions complete by Monday June 4. After (or before or during) the workshop, pdf files of any presentations can be linked to these pages for archive purposes as described at http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/Help:Uploading_Files

(sorry for cross-posting if you got this already through another channel)

Dear Colleages,

In the near future the EISCAT Scientific Association will face a major instrumental upgrade with the ESFRI Roadmap project "EISCAT_3D: A European Three-Dimensional Imaging Radar for Atmospheric and Geospace Research."

EISCAT, in co-operation with the Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory (SGO), will run a training course for new users of the EISCAT radars, from 27th August to 1st September, 2012 (Monday to Saturday). The training course will be held at Sodankylä, where one of the EISCAT UHF remote sites is located.

The course will cover all essential aspects of the current EISCAT systems, including their science programme. An overview of the existing hardware and software will be provided and future plans will be discussed, with a strong emphasis on EISCAT_3D. Tips on analysing and working with the data will be given and the participants will run an own radar experiment in a hand-on exercise.

The lecturers comprise members of the EISCAT staff and experienced scientists from the user community. As well as providing a good foundation for new EISCAT users, the course will also provide a chance for more established users to be updated on the latest and future developments.

The deadline for registration in the course is 26th June, 2012.

For more information please visit http://www.sgo.fi/Events/RS2012/.

Please forward this message to anyone you might think is interested. Thank you!

All the best from Sodankylä,

Thomas Ulich

(Apologies if you receive this more than once!)

Dear Colleagues,

Please see the attached second announcement for the 4th international HEPPA (High Energy Particle Precipitation in the Atmosphere) meeting, which will be held jointly with SPARC/SOLARIS (Stratospheric Processes and their Role in Climate / SOLAR Influences for SPARC).

We invite you to join us in Boulder, Colorado, USA on 9-12 October, 2012, for a lively and stimulating workshop to discuss the newest advances in understanding the influences of solar radiation and energetic particle precipitation on space weather, the atmosphere, and climate.

The HEPPA/SOLARIS 2012 web page is at http://www2.acd.ucar.edu/heppasolaris. This page will be updated soon with information on program agenda, logistics, and instructions for registration and abstract submission - which are due 17 August.

Please let me know if you have any questions, or if you would like to be removed from this distribution list. Also, please forward this announcement to colleagues who might be interested.

All the best,

Cora Randall
