2011 GSICS Users' Workshop

This year the GSICS Users' Workshop was again collocated with the EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference, which was held in Oslo on 5-9 September 2011.

The GSICS Users' Workshop took place in the Auditorium on the afternoon of Tuesday 6 September, starting 13:00 until 19:00 during a poster session at the conference.

Posters relating to GSICS activities will be grouped for reviewing during the coffee break and after the workshop.
