Abstract submission is now closed.  Registration will open in the near future.

The 21st EISCAT Symposium 2024 and 48th Annual European Meeting on Atmospheric Studies by Optical Methods welcomes those that research atmospheric and space physics.  The sessions involve a variety of topics in these fields, including the use of high powered radar systems and optical instrumentation. Researchers utilizing different instruments and models are also welcome and will find relevant sessions to submit abstracts to.  We look forward to seeing your exciting research at the conference!

Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to announce that the EISCAT Symposium 2024 will occur the week of July 29 to August 2 in Tromsø, Norway.  The 48th Annual European Meeting on Atmospheric Studies by Optical Methods will be held simultaneously.

- Airglow
- Atmospheric Composition, Aerosols, and Clouds (Polar Stratospheric, Noctilucent, etc.)
- Meteors, Sprites, and other Transient Phenomena

Please note that some sessions may be combined depending on abstract submission numbers.

Accommodations:
Due to the demand for hotels in Tromsø during the summer months, it is recommended to book your hotel/accommodations as soon as possible.

2024 is an important year for the incoherent scatter community as it is expected to be the first year of EISCAT 3D operations. We hope to see some initial results from the system presented during the symposium.

The registration fee will include coffee breaks, lunches, a visit to the EISCAT 3D Skibotn site, conference style presentations, and a banquet dinner.

We look forward to seeing you in Tromsø!
