2019 CoRP Science Symposium

University of Maryland, College Park, August 27-29, 2019

CoRP_Symposium_LogoRegister and/or Submit an Abstract

The new Cooperative Institute for Satellite Earth System Studies (CISESS), formerly known as CICS, is hosting this year's NOAA NESDIS Cooperative Research Program (CoRP) Science Symposium at the University of Maryland on August 27 to 29. The CoRP Science Symposium is an opportunity for NESDIS/STAR’s Cooperative Institutes and Science Centers to communicate ongoing remote sensing research and applications.

The Symposium is part of a larger strategy to promote federal and academic partnerships. It targets multidisciplinary research with a focus on graduate students, post-docs, and early-career scientists. Undergraduates are welcome to participate as well. The Symposium also highlights research and application development within NESDIS and its Cooperative Institutes and Cooperative Science Centers, which include CIMSS, CIRA, CISESS (at Maryland & North Carolina) and NOAA-CREST.

We encourage all students and young scientists to submit an abstract for the conference. Everyone who sends us an abstract will get to present (oral or poster) at the Symposium.

The presentations should address the themes of the Cooperative Institutes and the Cooperative Research Program (CoRP) of NESDIS' Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR):
