EISCAT_3D Preparatory Phase project has been running for just over a year now, having officially begun on 1st October 2010. It is planned to have annual "All-Hands Meetings," during which all participants of the project come together to discuss progress, exchange ideas, and plan the future. The first of these meetings will take place at the EISCAT Headquarters in Kiruna, Sweden, from 11th to 13th October 2011. The agenda of the meeting, which is pretty much a living document and will be updated according to needs arising before and during the meeting, has been made public today.
As always, make your voice heard by contacting anyone involved in the project or any EISCAT staff. Now it's the time to get involved yourself. Welcome aboard!
