Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the Session 2 entitled "New radar/radio systems and future MST plans” at the next MST15 Workshop in Tokyo, Japan  during May 27-31, 2017. The workshop will overlap with the EISCAT Workshop. The description of the session and a copy of the call for papers appear below. Note that the deadline for abstract submission is 15 February 2017.

Looking forward to your participation in MST15 and EISCAT Workshops,

Juha Vierinen and Koki Chau

Session M2:
New radar/radio systems and future MST plans 
Session Conveners: Jorge L. Chau and Juha Vierinen
We invite contributions that present newly constructed or planned instrumentation to study the mesosphere, stratosphere, troposphere, and the lower ionosphere. Submissions can describe new large, medium, and small scale projects and they can also describe planned upgrades to capabilities of existing instruments. Examples of possible contribution topics can include: MST radars, incoherent scatter radars, new rocket and satellite missions, meteor radars, boundary layer radars, wind profilers, ST radars, specular meteor radars, MF radars, LIDARs, airglow imagers, aperture synthesis imaging radars, HF radars, and ionospheric heaters. We also encourage submissions on cross-cutting novel instrumentation plans, which can be used also for MST studies as a secondary purpose, e.g., passive radars, LOFAR, LWA, etc.
