15th International EISCAT Workshop

Biennial EISCAT International Workshops have been organized since 1983. The 15th International EISCAT Workshop will be held in Qingdao, China, 5th - 9th September 2011, hosted by the China Research Institute of Radiowave Propagation (CRIRP). The year 2011 marks 30 years of EISCAT incoherent scatter radar measurements. We will celebrate this anniversary with a dedicated ceremony.

The workshop sessions will cover new results from areas including space weather, solar-magnetosphere-ionosphere-atmosphere coupling, high-latitude ionosphere, mesosphere and thermosphere, meteors and space debris, ionospheric modification, and especially both traditional and novel applications of the EISCAT and other incoherent scatter radars in the world. In addition to the sessions concerning scientific progress there will be sessions on new radar plans and techniques (e.g. EISCAT_3D, the new Antarctic radar, the 3rd antenna for the EISCAT Svalbard Radar, collaboration with satellites).

Suggested sessions
  1. Overview of the IS Research by EISCAT- 30 Years of Measurements
  2. Space Weather and Solar Wind-Magnetosphere-Ionosphere-Atmosphere Coupling
  3. High-Latitude Ionospheres
  4. Mesosphere and Thermosphere
  5. The EISCAT-3D and the Future
  6. The Global ISR Network
  7. Meteors and Space Debris
  8. New Techniques and Areas of Research
  9. Ionospheric Modification
  10. Poster session

We welcome scientists and students all over the world to attend the workshop presenting the latest research achievements. Oral or poster contributions are both welcome. The invitation letters will be sent together with the acceptance notification of abstract to each contributor for application of visa to China.
