-------- Update of the 23 Dec 2011 Message --------



   Dear Colleagues,


The
"20 years of Progress in Radar Altimetry" Symposium
will take place from Monday 24 to Saturday 29 September 2012, in Venice-Lido, Italy
.



Please mark in your agenda for the abstract deadline: 15 February


    Following on from the "15 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry"  Symposium in 2006, deemed a very successful landmark by the participants and the readership of the Proceedings, we are now reaching the twenty-year anniversary of the launch of ERS-1 and TOPEX/POSEIDON. To mark this occasion the  European Space Agency, in collaboration with the French Space Agency,  CNES, is organising an exceptional Symposium on "20  Years of Progress in Radar  Altimetry". This event will be sponsored by other partner agencies and organizations supporting the development of altimetry. Along with this symposium, several related events will take place on the same week, including the annual meeting of the Ocean Surface Topography Science Team (OSTST), the International Doris Service (IDS) workshop and the Argo Science Workshop as well as other thematic workshops still to be organised, such as, Sea Level for Climate, Coastal Zone, Space for Hydrology, etc. These events will be held over 6 days, from 24 to 29 of September 2012, in Venice-Lido, Italy.

    Please consider your participation at this exceptional event and reserve the week from 24 to 29 September 2012 in your agenda. For the symposium, a call for papers is available at http://www.altimetry2012.org (Flyer) with detailed information and deadlines (NB: the "call for papers" flyer does not mention adequately the Argo Workshop as it was produced before this event was organised).
The abstract deadline is 15 February. For OSTST Meeting,  IDS Workshop and Argo Workshop, additional information and call for contributions will be sent out by their organisers and linked to this same website:


* Ocean Surface Topography Science Team (OSTST) Annual Meeting

This meeting includes the splinter working sessions of the traditional OSTST event while the keynote presentations will be included in the Symposium programme. Please submit those by
the abstract deadline of 15 February to


http://www.altimetry2012.org (Abstract Submission)


The normal Splinter sessions abstracts will be due by 16 May 2012.
See OSTST2012 web site: http://www.altimetry2012.org (Themes -> OSTST)


* International DORIS Service Workshop


This workshop will bring together representatives from all DORIS groups to share information about the network, data, products, and to coordinate future activities. It will be a platform for exchanges and discussions on the following topics:
   - recent improvement in DORIS data processing for Precise Orbit Determination and Geodesy
   - IDS combined products
   - current scientific uses of IDS data and products
   - IDS and multi-technique combinations in the GGOS perspective


The IDS workshop sessions abstracts will be due by 16 May 2012 

See IDS web site: http://www.altimetry2012.org (Themes -> IDS)

Contributors to the IDS  Workshop are encouraged to also submit keynote, review and science presentations to the Symposium programme, in session "Altimetric contributions to gravity field, marine geoid, bathymetry modeling and orbit determination". Please submit those by the abstract deadline of 15 February to


http://www.altimetry2012.org (Abstract Submission)



* 4th Argo Science Workshop


The theme of the Argo workshop is to celebrate 10 years of progress for Argo and to prepare the next decade and new challenges for Argo.  The 2.5 day workshop will include both oral and poster presentations.  It will include a review of Argo achievements in ocean and climate research (e.g. heat and salt budget, large scale seasonal and inter-annual variability and ocean circulation, mesoscale variability, marginal seas, ocean analysis and forecasting) and float technology and science discussions on the development on the new phase of Argo for the next decade (sustaining Argo and developing extension towards biogeochemistry, deep ocean and polar regions).  
The general objectives of the Workshop are:

  - to stimulate more research using Argo data, especially in combination with altimetry,
  - to entrain young scientists into the Argo community
  - to strengthen communications between the Argo and altimetry groups
  - to further increase the visibility of the Argo Program
  - to broaden the discussion of Argo's future evolution. 


See Argo Science Workshop web site: http://www.altimetry2012.org (Themes -> Argo Science Workshop)


Contributors to the Argo Workshop are encouraged to also submit keynote, review and science presentations concerning Argo to the Symposium programme, in session:  Synergy between Altimetry, other data and models: "the integrated approach". Please submit those by the abstract deadline of 15 February to
