Sixteenth EISCAT-3D User Meeting

                  EISCAT Scientific Association                    EISCAT Scientific Association                                           

The 17th EISCAT_3D User Meeting, 2024/1

  will take place in May 14-15, probably in Uppsala.

16th EISCAT_3D User Meeting 2023/2

  The 16th E3D User Meeting (UM) took place on November 30 and December 1, 2023 (week 48). The UM was hybrid, i.e. physical attendance is at EISCAT/IRF Rymdcampus in Kiruna, and online participation via Zoom.

      participants in the IRF Aula

Subjects of presentations/discussions were first experiments, their data organization, profiles vs voxels, E3D Common Programmes, and Visualization.

Practical Information

The workshop took place at the EISCAT HQ/IRF in Kiruna. The Kiruna rymdcampus can be reached by bus 501 of Länstrafiken Norrbotten.  Online participation is via the Zoom tool licensed by IRF, i.e. there is no exchange of personal data such as names and email addresses with third parties. We did not record the meeting but make presentation slides publicly available also for some time after the meeting, if the presenters provided them and agreed.
