Observation, validation, and theoretical simulation are highly integrated components of atmospheric remote sensing. Active and passive remote sensing techniques and theories for measuring atmospheric and other environmental variables have advanced very rapidly in recent years. To serve the calibration/validation requirements of satellite missions, ground-based and in-situ measurements of the atmospheric components such as cloud and aerosol particles, also, flourish during this time period. At the same time, the fundamental atmospheric physics, such as light scattering and radiative transfer in the atmosphere, has significant progress, which is critical for quantitative understanding of remotely sensed data. To exchange the latest development of the remote sensing studies and to nurture international collaboration on tackling emerging theoretical and observational issues in atmospheric sciences, the 3rd International Symposium on Atmospheric Light Scattering and Remote Sensing (ISALSaRS’13) will be held in Nagoya, Japan during July 29 - August 2, 2013. The symposium welcomes science communities to report their latest results and discuss future directions of atmospheric remote sensing with researchers from the world.
Nagoya, a city with the population of more than 2 million, is located at the center of the main island of Japan (Honshu). The city has a long history dated back 1900 years ago when Atsuta Jingu, which ties closely to the legendary characters in Kojiki (the oldest history book of Japan), was firstly established. Moreover it is the birthplace of three notable feudal warlords: Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Tokugawa Ieyasu. Also, both traditional industries like those in ceramics and textiles and modern manufacturers such as in automobiles (Toyota) have been well developed around its metropolitan area. Nagoya is an excellent example of the natural combination of rich history with magnificent modernization.
ISALSaRS’13 will be held at the E & S Hall of Nagoya University (Higashiyama Campus, which is located in the central part of Nagoya).

(Note: The E & S Hall is around C2-4 in the above map).
A block of rooms has been reserved for ISALSaRS’13 participants at a special rate
(currently about $140-$110) at Sir Winston Hotel.
This is the nearest convenient hotel to the venue,
and it takes approximately 15 minutes by subway (2 stations).

Mielparque Nagoya is also available at a special rate (currently about $100), and it takes approximately 25 minutes by subway. >> [Mielparque Nagoya]
Dormitory rooms inside the campus are also available. The rate is JPY3750 (currently about $50). Each room has AC, bath, toilet, TV, refrigerator, and soap/toothbrush. Payment for the dormitory should be made in Japanese Yen.
There are a lot of hotels in Nagoya, but if you like to choose these facilities, please let us know your preference with participant register form (the number of above rooms is limited).
The registration fee should be paid in CASH at the symposium check-in (Japanese Yen is also acceptable). Credit cards cannot be used for paying the registration fee.
We encourage authors to submit their abstracts early to ensure prompt confirmation and processing. A sample abstract for submission is available below. Authors can submit their abstract in either MS Word *.doc or Acrobat *.pdf formats. All abstracts will be reviewed by the scientific committee of this symposium. Accepted abstracts will be produced into CD and made available to delegates at the symposium.
The title should be as brief as possible; preferably one line.
The main (presenting) author's name should be marked with an asterisk (*), if there are multiple authors. And authors and their corresponding affiliation should be indicated with numbers.
The abstract is limited to one page and subject to specific word limits, typically about 300-500 words.
Please send your abstract to email@example.com by Apr. 26, 2013. And the following information should be added in your e-mail contents such as Name of participant, E-mail Address, Affiliation, Address, Title and Name of attached file, Preferred Session and Presentation Type (oral or poster). Notices of acceptance will be sent out as abstracts are received and reviewed.
