The Europlanet Networking Activity Workshop on "Uniting Planetary Modelling and Data Analysis: Part 2" is to be held at Elite City Resort Hotel, Kalamata, Greece. The workshop will be held over 22–25 July 2019 and is co-convened by Nick Achilleos (UCL) and Nick Sergis (Academy of Athens).
The large scientific communities involved in the analysis and modelling of ground- and space-based datasets related to planetary environments in our Solar System have, over many decades, developed sophisticated models, algorithms and software for supporting this kind of research. With missions such as Cassini leaving a large legacy dataset for Saturn, Juno expected to do the same for Jupiter, and JUICE in the pre-launch phase of development, now is the time to raise awareness of these resources and in what form their originators have provided or plan to provide them to the wider community.
Following the initial success of the related Europlanet NA workshop which took place last year in Greece, a 'follow-up' workshop is scheduled to take place during July 22 through 25 in 2019.
As before, this workshop aims to unite planetary modellers, providers of data analysis tools/services, and any planetary scientists who wish to find out more about these kind of resources, which could facilitate their research activities.
The format of the workshop will follow the established scheme of a combination of ~30 minute presentations and 'tutorial sessions' on the use of model outputs / data analysis resources. If possible this year, we would like to conduct even more 'tutorial sessions', which could be anywhere up to about 2 hours in duration, according to the wishes of the presenter.
Europlanet can cover reasonable accommodation costs for approximately the first 20 participants who register, for the purpose of attending the meeting itself, during the dates below (invited speakers will automatically have their accommodation costs provided).
