Download the Conference PPT template

The approved abstracts will be incorporated into and become part of a series of respective white papers. The drafting of these papers will be handled and coordinated by the session co-chairs.

The oral presentations and discussions will be arranged according to the following themes:

  • Wave Retrievals
  • Near Surface Wind Retrievals and detection of Extremes
  • Doppler Shift Retrievals
  • Sea Ice Retrievals
  • Sensor Synergy
  • Methodology and Techniques
  • Future Missions
  • Applications (Oil Spill, Ship Detection, etc)

For each of these themes we will have a sequence of plenary sessions that will last for up to 105 minutes and include:

  • Keynote presentations (~ 1 hour)
  • Extended theme discussions (~ 45 minutes immediately after each keynote presentation)

For the plenaries we kindly ask you to prepare 4-6 slides using the following structure:

  • Key objectives
  • Innovation (new findings and achievements)
  • Remaining knowledge gaps and deficiencies
  • Outlook and recommendation

The slides will be aggregated into the respective keynote presentations. Each author will soon be contacted by the session co-chairs for more details.

Following the sequence of the plenary sessions we will break into parallel theme panels to further discuss innovative methods, gaps and future needs including calibration/validation issues (~ 6 hours). You are welcome to prepare additional material for these panel meetings. Each panel will then be invited to report in plenary on the theme discussion and outcome.
