2nd EOP PCC Workshop announcement

The EOP PCC Office (CBK PAN), in cooperation with GFZ in Potsdam, plans to organize virtual 2nd EOP PCC Workshop. The aim of the meeting is to present status of the campaign and to get feedback from participants and members of the IERS Working Group on the 2nd EOP PCC.

The workshop will consist of a mix of presentations given by members of the EOP PCC Office, campaign participants and members of the Working Group. We encourage EOP PCC participants to give a brief presentation about their prediction methods and outcomes or results of recent investigations related to the topic. Additional open session for other topics is also planned together with closing session with discussion, questions and suggestions from participants and members of the Working Group. Participants will also have the opportunity to publish their works in workshop proceedings. More details will be available soon.
