The Keck Institute for Space Studies (KISS http://www.kiss.caltech.edu/)
is a privately funded "think and do tank" designed to develop new
planetary, Earth, and astrophysics space mission concepts and technology
by bringing together a broad spectrum of scientists and engineers for
sustained scientific and technical interaction.

We (Joao Teixeira and Yuk Yung) are organizing a KISS mini-program on
"Climate Feedbacks and Future Remote Sensing Observations" during the
first two weeks of September 2009 (from September 1st to September 9th).

The plan is to have one week dedicated to cloud-climate feedbacks and the
other week to water vapor - climate feedbacks.

For more details: http://www.kiss.caltech.edu/mini-program/cloud.html. The
plan is to have a relatively small amount of participants with few
presentations and a substantial amount of discussion and interactions.

KISS encourages the participation of graduate students and post-docs. KISS
and NSF have provided some limited travel funding. At this stage we are
accepting informal applications from graduate students and post-docs for
travel funding to attend and participate in this KISS Mini-Program.

Please encourage your interested graduate students and post-docs to send
an email with the following:

- a CV (attached as a pdf)
- travel details with expected expenses (in e-mail)
- one paragraph stating how their current research aligns with the goals
of the mini-program (in e-mail)

to Joao Teixeira (Teixeira at jpl.nasa.gov<mailto:Teixeira at jpl.nasa.gov>) and
Michele Judd (mjudd at kiss.caltech.edu<mailto:mjudd at kiss.caltech.edu>). 
Note that the names of the selected graduate students/post-docs will be
posted on the KISS website along with their submitted paragraphs.
