EISCAT International Symposium underway in Lancaster, UK

Since this morning, the EISCAT International Symposium is underway at Lancaster University, Lancaster, UK. The meeting will last all week, 12th to 16th August 2013, and it is followed by the meeting of the EISCAT Science Oversight Committee (SOC) on 17th and 18th August.

The Symposium, formerly known as the EISCAT Workshop, was opened by the new Director of EISCAT, Dr Craig Heinselman, who used the opportunity to introduce himself. In the photo above, he presents a slide on a possible design solution for EISCAT_3D antenna arrays.

It'll be an interesting week here at Lancaster. You can follow the progress here on the blog, on the EISCAT_3D Facebook page, as well as on three different Twitter feeds: @EISCAT_3D, @EISCATUK and @KairaProject.
