Conference on Laser-based weather control (LWC2011)

Date Do, 29.09.2011 - Sa, 01.10.2011
Location World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) in Geneva
Program Let’s build together a new community dedicated to laser-based weather modulation.

The purpose of the conference is to facilitate the contacts and sharing of ideas between researchers from different communities, including specialists of the atmosphere and of the laser physics. This will be achieved by tutorials of 30 minutes followed by 15 minutes of discussion.
More targeted results will be presented as posters. To help establishing contacts, each poster will be briefly presented orally in a few minutes in a plenary session at the beginning of the poster session.
Furthermore, long coffee breaks and lunch breaks are scheduled to allow time for informal discussions.
