This is the second announcement regarding the "15 Years of
Progress in Radar Altimetry" Symposium, issuing the Call for Papers.
Please see the digital version of the Call for Papers flyer at
http://www.esa.int/venice06. The deadline for submitting an abstract for the
Symposium is 26 September. The Scientific Committee will review the abstracts
and recommend them for oral or poster presentation. Note that you are asked
express your wish for the delivery of your presentation, but from a first
estimate of the participation and the time available, not all wishes for oral
presentation will be satisfied as expressed. There will be ample poster
sessions for fruitful discussions on the progress. Regardless of the
presentation format, _all_ contributions shall be submitted as full papers
the proceedings, which we expect to be seminal! Deadline: 7 March 2006.
Please do not submit papers on preliminary results but rather a review of
progress over the past (15?) years. Students are encouraged to submit their
contribution on recent results and to take advantage of the special
An important news since the first announcement in May is that
the Second ARGO
Science Workshop will take place the same week at the same venue. The
Symposium already has a theme on the "Integrated Approach" and specific
results from the wide range of research and operational uses of ARGO data and
plans for the further
exploitation of ARGO will be discussed in the Workshop.
The combination of the Symposium with the OSTST meeting, the ARGO workshop
and the IDS workshop will allow to foster dialogue among the wide community
involved in altimetry and related programmes, engineers, scientists,
and project managers, as well as end-users.
Please consider your participation in this exceptional event,
submit a paper
to the Symposium before 26 September and reserve the week from 13 to 18 March
2006 in your agenda. Stay tuned to the Symposium website for future
information about registering early. For OSTST, ARGO and IDS meetings,
additional information and the call for contributions will be sent out and
linked to this website.
Looking forward to your participation in this unique event.
