WMO/IOC Satcom Forum meeting
From Tuesday 09 October 2018
To Thursday 11 October 2018
Location Amsterdam, Netherlands

ImageThe World Meteorological Organisation and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, invites you to a meeting of the Satcom Forum, 9th-11th October 2018 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Satcom 2018 is a free event for scientists and engineers working in all areas of environmental science - including meteorology, hydrology, marine and polar science - who make use of satellite communications technology to collect or distribute data. It brings together people from the satcom industry, scientific equipment manufacturers, and scientists using the equipment in the field. It is a great opportunity to learn about what is available, and to share best practice.

They have already lined up a number of industry speakers, including representatives from Eumetsat, Orbcomm, Rock7 (specialist Iridium reseller) and Inmarsat, and hope to have as many of the commercial satellite networks represented as possible.

To register to attend the event, please use the following form:

They are also looking for papers or posters on the use of satellite communications within environmental science. These could include descriptions of existing systems, suggestions for the industry for new products or services, or good or bad experiences and learnings from setting up satellite data collection systems.

To register for a poster or oral paper, please use the following form.

They hope to make decisions about which will be selected by the beginning of August.

Satcom 2018 is held in conjunction with the Meteorological Technology World Expo, at the RAI exhibition centre in Amsterdam. WMO can provide formal invitations to assist with visa applications if required. We regret that we cannot provide funding for travel costs for speakers or attendees.
