Special Product Generation and Quality Control Session
To identify commonly prioritized quality control and product generation
methodologies and organize their introduction to the NORDRAD network. The
event will begin with a half-day course focussed on how new QC and product
generation algorithms may be introduced to the NORDRAD2 software system. There
will also be interaction regarding quality characterization issues as identified
within the framework of COST 717.

Skyways services Norrköping from
Copenhagen. Swedish railways (SJ) services
Norrköping frequently, as Norrköping is on the main line between
Stockholm and Malmö. There are good daytime connections from Stockholm-Arlanda
by train. There is a special train which connects Arlanda (Terminals 2 and
5) with Stockholm Central Station, called Arlanda Express. Other trains (SJ)
stop at Sky City which is located between Terminals 4 and 5.
Once in Norrköping, SMHI is accessible by the Nr. 3 tram towards "Klockaretorpet".
Ask the conductor to announce the SMHI stop.
In addition to the NORDRAD member countries, we warmly welcome participants
from neighboring countries Denmark (DMI),
Estonia (EMHI), Germany (DWD), Latvia (LHMA) and Lithuania (Meteo.lt) Poland (IMGW), and Russia (Roshydromet). We also warmly
encourage interaction with the BALTEX Working Group on Radar, which includes
additional members from the United Kingdom and The Netherlands.
Topics and schedule
The programme is designed to identify a number of key areas for common
work. Each area shall be dealt with in terms of what algorithms are prioritized
and who is able to develop/implement them. The work will then be organized,
and issues related to product quality, as identified by COST 717, will also
be dealt with.

The guests are kindly requested to arrange their accomodation in time.
The organizing committee recommends the Kneippen (a short walk from SMHI), Södra Hotellet, Quality Hotel President,
or the Scandic chain. Mention SMHI when
you book so that you may make use of our discount.
There will be no papers as such. Instead, there will be moderated sessions
devoted to identifying commonly prioritized issues, and to organizing the
resulting work in a pragmatic manner. Appropriate session moderators will
be appointed by the local organizers. Attendees are, however, asked to bring
along material (digital or plastic transparancies) which can be useful to
illustrate key issues in the discussions.
