Program at a Glance Short Courses

The 2017 Weather Radar and Hydrology Symposium will consist of Oral Session and Poster Sessions, including nearly 160 presentations selected according to quality by the Scientific Committee. Opening and Plenary Session will be scheduled on 10 April morning.

Separately from but in parallel with the Oral Session, there also will be held in the separated room on 11-12 April concurrently.

Poster presentation will be continuously accessible in the Exhibition Room and discussed in the presence of authors on 11-12 April afternoon from 13:00 to 14:00.
