This workshop is a collaboration between the annual AMISR summer school (the fourth of its kind) and the EISCAT radar school. This workshop aims at teaching the participants how to request, design and analyze ISR experiments. All participants will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with experienced scientists. The workshop is structured to provide lectures in the morning and hands-on experience in experiment design and analysis in the afternoons. The morning presentations will include an introduction to the theory of incoherent scatter, radar operations, ISR analysis
techniques, and the Madrigal database. The afternoon exercises will involve working closely with school staff in the topic areas of proposal design, experiment execution, and data analysis. Participants will have the opportunity to work with data from globally distributed ISRs.

This workshop is suitable for graduate and advanced undergraduate students, as well as scientists new to the incoherent scatter radar technique. The workshop is jointly sponsored by the EISCAT Scientific Association and the US National Science Foundation.

Attendance is limited to 50 participants in total. Due to the different funding sources, the method of applying for the school will depend on location, as below.
