NOAA Emerging Technologies for Observations Workshop
About NOAA's Emerging Technologies Workshop
The National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration (NOAA) Emerging Technologies for Observations Workshop (ETW), is a two-day, public event showcasing the latest innovations designed to collect, analyze, and/or synthesize environmental data. First held in 2016, the event aims to identify new technology with the potential to advance NOAA’s capabilities to monitor, assess, and predict the environment. The workshop features presentations and technical posters highlighting projects funded by NOAA and external stakeholders, representing academia, private industry, and other federal government agencies. The NOAA ETW is held every 18-24 months.
2019 Speaker and Poster Submissions
NOAA is seeking applications for workshop speakers and technical posters which highlight technologies in one or more of the 2019 topic areas. Technologies must be at Technical Readiness Level 6 (TRL-6) or above. Submissions are encouraged from NOAA affiliated/funded groups and external stakeholders, representing academia, private businesses, and other government agencies.
For those interested in submitting an abstract for consideration, there are two submission tracks, based on how your technology is currently funded. External submissions - for emerging technologies that are not currently funded by NOAA - must be completed as a response to the 2019 NOAA ETW Request for Information (RFI), and are due by November 29, 2018.
2019 Registration Information
Online registration is required for all attendees and will open in mid November 2018 (via a direct link that will appear on this page). Workshop space is limited, and registration for the public is on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you would like to receive an alert as soon as registration opens, you may sign up (below) for an automatic email notification.
The Emerging Technologies Workshop is being co-sponsored by NOAA’s Observing Systems Council (NOSC), the NOAA Research Council (NRC), the NOAA Ocean and Coastal Council (NOCC), and the Weather Water and Climate Board (WWCB), and is being organized by the NOSC’s Observing Systems Committee (OSC) with support from the Technology, Planning and Integration for Observations (TPIO) Division.
