The 2nd SMOS Science Conference is jointly organised by ESA, CNES and SMOS-MODE and will take place at ESA-ESAC, near Madrid (Spain) from 25 to 29 May 2015.
The focus of this conference will deviate from previous events in that the emphasis will be on applications of SMOS data, including operational services, the development of novel data products, the synergistic use of SMOS data with other data sources and the potential of SMOS data for the generation of long-term data sets. The workshop will also cover common themes such as the quality of the Level 1 data products and calibration and validation activities.
The 2nd SMOS Science Conference will be preceded by a SMOS Training Course from 18 to 22 May 2015, organised by CESBIO and held as well at the ESA-ESAC premises near Madrid.

The European Space Agency is jointly organising the 7th International Workshop on Science and Applications of SAR Polarimetry and Polarimetric Interferometry, POLinSAR 2015, and the 1st BIOMASS Science workshop. The workshops will be held in ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy on the following dates:
The objectives of the workshops are to provide a forum for exchange on the latest advances and research in SAR polarimetry and to gather a scientific community for ESA's future BIOMASS mission.

This SMOS workshop, organised by CESBIO and ESA will be held in Toulouse, France from 13 to 14 November 2014.
The workshop aims to bring together the EO, SMOS, Earth system science and modelling communities involved in the observation, characterisation and forecasting of land surface processes and their impacts. In particular, the event represents a unique opportunity to facilitate the communications and scientific exchanges among these different communities in order to enhance the coordination of specific scientific efforts and advocate for a common view of major scientific needs and priority areas for the future.
The outcome of this workshop will include recommendations to further advance (1) the development and validation of novel SMOS products and observations (also in synergy with other EO datasets), (2) the development of novel applications and science results that may exploit the full capacity of SMOS in the context of key land processes and their impacts on climate (3) the effective assimilation of SMOS observations and products into advanced model / data assimilation systems/approaches and (4) the formulation of a research agenda that may guide ESA and other institutions to initiate dedicated future activities.

Ocean Salinity Science & Salinity Remote Sensing Workshop will be held at Met Office, Exeter, United Kingdom from 26 to 28 November 2014. The 3 day workshop is an open meeting to review progress and future priorities for measuring ocean salinity.
The focus of this workshop will be: To review progress made in using Ocean Salinity data (SSS and subsurface), to identify scientific challenges and benefits of using satellite SSS data in the wider ocean community in synergy with other data sources (in situ, satellite, model); and thus, to foster the use of the new SSS data from space in the wider ocean and climate science communities.

This conference, jointly organised by ESA, SatCen, and JRC, aims to bring together researchers, engineers, and users in the area of Big Data in the Space sector. The focus is on the whole data lifecycle, ranging from data acquisition by spaceborne and ground-based sensors to data management, analysis and exploitation in the domains of Earth Observation, Space Science, Space Engineering, Space Weather, etc. Special emphasis will be put on highlighting synergies and cross-fertilisation opportunities from domains like Climate Change, Solid Earth Science, Planetary Sciences, Life Science, Astrophysics, High Energy Physics, Social Sciences, etc.
The conference aims to contribute towards a common "Big Data from Space" scientific and programmatic framework; widen competences and expertise of universities, labs and industrial actors; foster networking of experts and users towards better access and sharing of data, tools and resources; leverage innovation, spin-in, spin off of technologies, and business development arising from research and industry progress.
Registration is open
28 - 31 October 2014
The Earth Observation for Ocean-Atmosphere Interactions Science 2014, will be held in ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy, from 28 to 31 October 2014.
This joint ESA-SOLAS-EGU conference aims at bringing together the EO and SOLAS communities, as well as scientific institutions and space agencies involved in the observation, characterisation and forecasting of ocean-atmosphere interactions and their impacts.

The Coastal Altimetry Community, that is the international community of scientists working on development and applications of altimetry in the coastal zone, will convene for the 8th Coastal Altimetry Workshop at the university city of Konstanz, on the German shore of Lake Constance, from 23 to 24 October 2014.
This Workshop aims at being once again a lively forum for a community-led review of the science and applications of coastal altimetry, from data processing through emerging applications to new technologies.
The workshop will be held just before the SARAL/AltiKa Workshop and the Ocean Surface Topography Science Team (OSTST) meeting, both also taking place in Konstanz on the following week, so that delegates can conveniently attend all these related events.
A SAR Altimetry Training Course will also be organised from 21 to 22 October 2014.

The EarthCare Science Workshop will be held in Tokyo, Japan, from 17 to 19 September 2014. The workshop is organised by JAXA in cooperation with ESA. The quantitative representation of clouds, precipitation, aerosol and their radiative properties remains one of the main challenges for climate and weather prediction models. In response to this need, ESA has selected the Earth Cloud Aerosol and Radiation Explorer (EarthCARE) satellite mission for implementation as the third Earth Explorer Core Mission in cooperation with the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
