IDS Workshop, Venice, Italy, 18-20 October 2021

The IDS workshop 2021 will be held at the Palazzo del Casinò in Venice, Italy, from 18 to 20 October 2021, as part of the altimetry event "Continued, enhanced ocean altimetry and climate monitoring from space", with the Ocean Surface Topography Science Team (OSTST) meeting 2021.


A hybrid in-situ and virtual meeting format is planned.


Call for papers

The abstract submission for the IDS Workshop (and OSTST meeting) is now open through this interface and will end June 12 (midnight UTC):

If you are NOT planning to attend the IDS WS 2021 in person, please choose the "Forum only" (Type Requested) for your submitted abstract.


Logistical details are available on the meeting at the URL: (keydates, registration) 


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 to the IDS workshop for presenting results in relation with topics such as:

  • DORIS network and constellation: status and evolution
  • IDS processing for the ITRF2020
  • Precise orbit modeling and Precise Orbit Determination
  • Reduction of Systematic Errors & Simulations of New Instrument or System Configurations
  • Research activities and new applications using DORIS data, or new methods of processing DORIS data.

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 (e.g., SLR, GNSS, VLBI), 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. As part of a pilot project, DORIS data are now being available in near-real time (NRT). Papers that describe NRT applications of different types are welcome.

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