Dear radiative transfer friend,
We are pleased to announce a new workshop in the series of "ARTS workshops". You don't
need to be an ARTS user or developer to participate, the workshop is open for all with an
interest in atmospheric radiative transfer. There is normally a strong focus on microwave
to infrared radiative transfer, but also other wavelength regions are of interest.
A novelty is that it will be possible to join remotely. Further information is
The place is the same as last time, Kristineberg (about 100 km north of Gothenburg). Time
for the actual workshop: June 9-11 (Tuesday morning to Thursday lunch). We will arrange
transport between Gothenburg and Kristineberg. A bus will departure from Gothenburg around
14:30 June 8, and we are back in Gothenburg around 15:00 June 11. That is, you need to
arrive to Gothenburg not too late Jun 8, and should have possibility to travel back home
The general goal of the workshop is as usual, that the ARTS user community (and also
people working with other RT models) can meet, get to know each other, solve practical
problems, and discuss the further development of the program. As always, we will have a
limited number of talks, to leave time for group work and discussions. The present main
development of ARTS is directed towards the release of ARTS3, planned for later this year,
- Overhauled line-by-line absorption calculations
- Better (and faster) representation of particles
- Scattering calculations across the spectrum
- Documentation and user examples
- Extending OEM retrievals (surface variables, multiple instruments ...)
but the workshop is not restricted to these topics.
If you are interested in participating, then please fill in the
pre-registration form at
in order to allow us plan the program. The deadline for pre-registration is March 15.
Since the available space at Kristineberg is limited, we have to limit the meeting to
roughly 30 persons. If more persons are interested, it will be first come first served.
Kristineberg is a marine research station. The station offers full board and lodging, but
the number of rooms is limited and most workshop participants will need to share double
rooms. If you require a single room indicate this under Comments. Transport to/from
Gothenburg is arranged at start/end of workshop. You only pay for room and food at
Kristineberg. We can not yet give you an exact price, but it should be in the order of 300
euro for the entire time.
We also aim for making it possible to participate by video. The presentation sessions will
be streamed, but it should also be possible to partly follow the group work. We will have
equipment to remotely join one or two groups.
Please note, we really want to make remote participation possible, but we can not leave
any guarantees and this option is so far on best effort basis.
If you plan to follow the workshop by video, send an email to
including this information:
- If you want to follow presentations
- If you would like to give a presentation: title + abstract
- If you will be interested in joining group work
