University of Maryland, College Park, August 27-29, 2019
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):
Satellite Meteorology Research and Applications
Satellite Sensors and Techniques (Calibration and Validation)
Satellite Observing Systems
Algorithm and New Product Development
Data Intensive Science/Cloud Computing
Earth System Science
Environmental Models and Data Assimilation
Regional to Global Modeling Systems
Data Assimilation of Satellite Products
Research to Operations and Applications
Societal and Economic Impact Studies
Other areas of interest for each of the CIs are listed at https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/star/corp_organizations.php
Abstracts are due on Monday, July 29th. We will notify you whether you will be a speaker or presenting a poster on August 10th. Registration closes on August 23.
Awards will be given for:
Presentations: 1st Place, 2nd Place & 3rd Place
Posters: 1st Place, 2nd Place & 3rd Place
