We welcome abstract submissions for oral presentations at the workshop, “Concept
Development for an Upper Atmospheric Research Facility at the Arecibo Magnetic
Conjugate Point in Argentina” to take place in April 17 - 19, 2006, at the Arecibo
Observatory, Puerto Rico. The presentations should provide the basis for a final
report which will describe the agreement from those attending the workshop on the
following three main points:
1. There is a *scientific* need for an ionospheric observatory at the Arecibo
Geomagnetic Conjugate Point. We have to show the wealth of scientific
opportunities that such a facility would provide.
2. There is a feasible technical approach to satisfying the scientific need.
The basis is an AMISR 'face', optical instruments, GPS instruments, etc.
3. There is a feasible international collaboration model that could provide leadership for a project to develop the facility.
The presentations will focus on these goals and will be distributed in three different
sections of the workshop agenda
Part I: Science opportunities with a conjugate facility. Submissions are welcome
for presentations which focus on what the community would like to do with a conjugate facility and how such facility would extend their presently on-going research.
Part II: Technical requirements for a conjugate facility. This section of the
meeting includes talks on the instruments that are required at the facility
to satisfy the science requirements discussed in Part I of the meeting.
Part III: Talks on how the project can be organized as an international
partnership. How are universities involved? How are governments and national
institutions involved? What funding sources might be accessible to us?
The 3 parts are not of equal length. A tentative time allocation for these sections
is:
Part I~50% meeting time
Part II~35% meeting time
Part III~15% of the meeting time.
Abstract submission deadline: March 25th, 2006
Submit abstracts by e-mail identifying the presenting author to Diego Janches
