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.The final program has been fixed as the attachment.
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). Detailed route is given by the following websites.
>> Map of Nagoya Univ.(Higashiyama Campus)
(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 $120-$100) 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 $85), and
it takes approximately 25 minutes by subway.
>> [Mielparque Nagoya]
Dormitory rooms inside the campus are also available.
The rate is JPY3750 (currently about $40).
Each room has AC, bath, toilet, TV, refrigerator, and soap/toothbrush.
Payment for the dormitory should be made in Japanese Yen at the symposium check-
in, then the key will be given to you.

There are a lot of hotels in Nagoya, but if you like to choose these facilities, please let us know your preference (the number of above rooms is limited).
There will be an exhibition during the symposium, which is an ideal opportunity to meet and to influence the communities in remote sensing techniques and atmospheric sciences.
The conditions of candidates
1) companies and associations that are related to ISALSaRS'13 2) companies and associations that can observe the terms in the guideline.
Exhibitors should pay the expenses except the exhibit fee such as
1) shipping expenses of exhibits
2) travel expenses of exhibitors
3) posters and pamphlets that exhibitors prepare
4) personnel expenses regarding the exhibition
[Notes] Shipping and setting up the exhibits should be done by exhibitors. Basically, no delivery services are available on July 28th (Sun.). Yamato Transport, however, can make the delivery if you specify the delivery time (after 14:00) and give the cellphone number and name of the person who will receive the goods at the ES Hall.
The address of the venue is
Central Bilding of Graduate School of Engineering (E&S Bldg.) Furo-cho Chikusa-ku, Nagoya 464-8601.
The exhibition space (the entrance hall) is available during the
July 28th (Sun) 14:30-19:30
July 29th (Mon) 8:00-20:00 July 30th and 31st (Tue and Wed) 8:00-18:00
Note that the boards and desk should be kept in the storeroom of the ES Hall everyday after the symposium. We ask exhibitors to set up the exhibits at their convenience during the above period. We appreciate your understanding.
Pre-register and payment system
On-site registration (without presentation) is also acceptable for 3,000 JPY including the abstract book. Please pay in cash at the symposium reception.
|Regular participants||40,000 JPY|
|Accompanied persons||25,000 JPY|
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 firstname.lastname@example.org by May 31, 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.
