A workshop aimed at providing students with hands-on experience in designing and running experiments at incoherent scatter radar facilities will be held at the Banff Centre, Banff, Alberta, Canada (http://www.banff.ca/). The workshop is being held in Canada for the first time in celebration of the brand new southward-looking Canadian Resolute Incoherent Scatter Radar (RISR-C). During this workshop, students will have the opportunity to run experiments and use data from multiple incoherent scatter radar observatories, such as Poker Flat (PFISR), Millstone Hill, Resolute Bay (RISR), Sondrestrom, Jicamarca and Arecibo.
