The 2017 NOAA Satellite Conference

Friday, December 9, 2016

The 2017 NOAA Satellite Conference will take place July 17-20, 2017. This year’s theme will focus on “A New Era for NOAA Environmental Satellites.”

The 2017 NOAA Satellite Conference (NSC) will continue the successful series of NOAA Satellite Conferences (most recently held in April 2015), bringing together users and providers of polar-orbiting and geostationary satellite data as well as data products and applications from the public, private and academic perspectives.

The event provides a forum for satellite data enthusiasts, ranging from scientists to the general public, to gain a firsthand understanding of NOAA’s environmental satellite programs. This year’s theme is “A New Era for NOAA Environmental Satellites.” Participants from across the world will cover topics such as data access, user reception and readiness, and technology and applications of polar-orbiting and geostationary environmental satellite constellations.

The conference will bring together data users and provides from more than three dozen countries. Participants will include representatives from NOAA, NASA, the Department of Defense, Environment Canada, the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) and the hydrometeorological services of countries in North, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Asia – all within one venue.

As NOAA continues to build and launch its next-generation satellite constellations, the conference will feature a variety of information sessions and presentations that will show users how these advanced spacecraft will better meet their needs for environmental data and information. The agenda will include, but is not limited to, discussions and possibilities for improved access and use of NOAA data, the reception and application of GOES-16 and JPSS-1 satellite data, building sustainable partnerships, and framing new pathways for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  

We also invite attendees to showcase the results of your collaborative education and research projects, as well as partnerships among users, scientists, and students at NOAA via multiple poster and presentation opportunities.
