JPSS Meeting Block Schedule, (XLSX, 18 KB, 8/27/2018)


Dear Colleagues:

You are cordially invited to participate in the 2018 JPSS STAR Annual Conference to be held 27-30 August 2018, in the Auditorium and Conference Center at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction (NCWCP) in College Park, Maryland.

With the launch and commissioning of NOAA-20 now behind us, the theme of the fifth annual conference will be "JPSS Applications". We will explore the many ways that users within NOAA and outside of it utilize data made possible by the hard work of STAR JPSS scientists, as well as ways in which STAR JPSS can work to make the user experience better. Through this conference we plan to accomplish the following objectives:

  • Review NOAA-20 Post-Launch testing and validation maturity progress, and future plans for algorithms, cal/val, science maintenance, and long term monitoring.
  • Engage with users and other stakeholders such as NASA, OSPO, OSGS, JPSS Risk Reduction and Proving Ground, the JPSS Ground and Flight Segments, and industry partners.
  • Enhance interaction between SDR and EDR teams and facilitate science and technical exchanges among the teams.
  • Provide updates for the user applications of JPSS data and ways in which their experiences can be made better and more productive.

Foreign nationals must register and submit the paperwork at least 6 weeks before the conference (deadline: July 13). Foreign nationals who do not register by that deadline will not be allowed to attend. WebEx and conference call will be available for remote participation.


Lihang Zhou
STAR JPSS Program Manager, on behalf of the JPSS STAR Annual Conference Planning Committee
