International EISCAT Symposium 2022
Layered Phenomena in the Mesopause Region
The Layered Phenomena
in the Mesopause Region (LPMR) Workshop is
traditionally held biannually to advance our understanding
of ice and dust layers and related phenomena in the
Earth's mesosphere and lower thermosphere. The
International EISCAT Symposium, formerly the EISCAT
workshop, has, over the years, become a major conference on
incoherent scatter radar as well as on atmospheric and
ionospheric science explored by this measurement method. The
20th symposium is jointly with the 15th LPMR Workshop.
A central aim of
this combined meeting is to bring the EISCAT and LPMR
communities together to explore joint scientific interests,
observational techniques and model approaches. The meeting will
comprise both joint sessions and separate EISCAT and LPMR
The meeting will take place on August 15-19, 2022.
The venue is the Sundbyholm castle
near the town of Eskilstuna in central Sweden.
The castle including its park and modern conference
accommodation is located on headland into the lake of Mälaren.
Wikipedia pages on Sundbyholm are in Swedish and German.
The commercial conference facilities are advertised here. Nearby
is also a camping and
Public transport between Eskilstuna and Stockholm or its
airport Arlanda is available by train and bus, and it takes
about 2 to 2.5 hours. Time tables and details of possible
transport arrangements will be published later.
