Note: The ROMEX Workshop has been confirmed. Therefore, the following survey has been closed. To register for the ROMEX Workshop, please go to the workshop website:
Dear ROMEX working group,
Please mark your calendars for the ROMEX Workshop on April 17-19, 2024, a hybrid meeting hosted at EUMETSAT in Darmstadt, Germany. After our recent ROMEX experimental design meeting, we agreed a formal meeting to discuss results together in a forum would be beneficial. EUMETSAT graciously offered to provide meeting space, coffee, lunches and one welcoming reception. We are currently planning for no or modest registration fees.
We’ve strategically chosen these dates to precede the CGMS WGII meeting (week of April 22), allowing us to present our findings and follow-up plans to the CGMS the following week.
Your participation either way is key, and we’re eager to gauge the level of interest in either in person or virtual participation. All ROMEX members are strongly recommended to participate. Please help us shape the workshop by taking a quick survey. Your input is valuable!
Here is the link to the workshop survey:
If you have difficulties accessing this survey, you can just write back to me and let me know whether you plan to attend this workshop, in person or remote, and whether you need an official letter of invitation to the meeting. Collections of contributions and short abstracts will occur later as the ROMEX experiments begin, but the planning for this meeting is best to begin now.
On behalf of the ROMEX steering committee
