IDS workshop, Ponta Delgada (Azores Archipelago), Portugal, 24-26 September 2018

Important Deadline:
June 15, 2018. End of Early Registration (350 Euros; regular registration is 450 Euros after this date).


We have been advised that the meeting will take place at a busy time, so attendees are advised to make their lodging reservations as soon as possible.



The IDS workshop 2018 will be held in Ponta Delgada (Azores Archipelago), Portugal, on 24 to 26 September 2018, as part of the 25 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry Symposium with the Ocean Surface Topography Science Team (OSTST) 2018.

See the Program Overview of these events.


The abstract submission for the IDS Workshop (and OSTST meeting) is now open through this interface and will end on May 21 (midnight UTC):


Logistical details are available on the meeting website


The IDS workshop will highlight current developments and the status of scientific results that use DORIS data, and will provide a platform for discussion and coordination of future activities.

IDS contributors are invited to submit a presentation (oral or poster) to the IDS workshop for presenting results in relation with topics such as:

  • Network and constellation: status and evolution
  • New DORIS missions (DGXX satellites), applications and products
  • Precise orbit modeling and Precise Orbit Determination
  • Use of DORIS in multi-technique solutions for the Terrestrial Reference Frame. ITRF2014 assessments.
  • Geophysics Applications. Applications in oceanography, atmospheric studies and geophysics


We also welcome papers that describe the progress of the activities pertaining to the DORIS operational combination. POD modelling issues related to radiation pressure, atmospheric drag, geocenter motion model, tropospheric delay and mapping functions, and phase center corrections that affect the quality of the DORIS products and papers that review progress in these areas will be especially welcome. We also welcome papers that synergistically use DORIS data in combination with other geodetic techniques, including multi-technique combinations for the terrestrial reference frame.

DORIS being a dual-frequency radio technique, provides a means to sound the ionosphere, and we welcome papers that use or compare the DORIS measurements with models or to calibrate the performance of satellite radar altimeters or make other uses of these ionospheric data.


The Scientific Committee will draw up a programme and an agenda at a later stage, according to the submitted abstracts.
