Flyer PDF


Data Assimilation is concerned with the reconstruction of the state of a dynamical system from measured data. This is a key ingredient for important applications, for example for Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) or predictions of Climate Change. The International Symposium on Data Assimilation brings together new and well established researchers in the field both in algorithmic developments as well as upcoming measurement devices and techniques. In a framework which consists of keynote lectures by selected international experts in the field, invited talks, tutorials, a seminar day on meteorological satellites and an extended poster session (please register!) we aim to have time for mutual exchange and discussions in a relaxed and stimulating environment at the Conference Area Blue of the headquarters of Deutscher Wetterdienst, Offenbach.
