18th EISCAT International Symposium

The 18th EISCAT symposium will be held from 26th to 30th May 2017 at National Institute of Polar Research (NIPR), Tokyo, Japan.

The EISCAT Scientific Association is an international research organization operating three incoherent scatter radar systems and an ionospheric heating facility in northern Scandinavia and Svalbard. The EISCAT radar systems have been widely used to study coupling processes in solar-terrestrial system, in particular, auroral and ionospheric physics and fundamental plasma physics. The EISCAT is funded and operated by research organizations of China, Finland, Japan, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom (collectively, the EISCAT Associates), and also France, Russia, South Korea, and Ukraine (as affiliate members). The EISCAT Associates organize a biennial scientific symposium, usually rotating between the member countries.

The 18th EISCAT symposium will be held in parallel to the 15th MST Workshop, with some joint sessions and shared activities.

Pre-registration and abstract submission functionality will start in December, 2016.
