Welcome


The fourth International Symposium on Data Assimilation (ISDA) will take place on February 23-26, 2015, at the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (AICS), Kobe, Japan. The ISDA 2015 continues a series of well received symposia: the German Symposium on Data Assimilation 2011 and the ISDA 2012 both at the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) in Offenbach, Germany, and the ISDA 2014 at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich, Germany. The symposium will include contributed and invited oral presentations by selected international experts, and two extended poster sessions. The best poster will be selected for the Best Poster Award. This symposium is a part of the RIKEN Symposium Series and is also held as the second AICS International Workshop on Data Assimilation. The fifth annual Japanese Data Assimilation Workshop (DAWS5, language: English) will immediately follow the ISDA 2015 and will take place on February 27, 2015.
