The Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) promotes on an international level scientific    research in space, with emphasis on the exchange of results, information and opinions, andprovides a forum, open to all scientists, for the discussion of problems that may affect  scientific space research.                                                                                                                                                          COSPAR organizes a biennial Scientific Assembly, with strong contributions from most      countries engaged in space research. The meeting allows the presentation of the latest    scientific results, the exchange of knowledge and also the discussion of space research   problems.  The COSPAR Scientific Assembly has become the premier forum for presenting the most important results in space research in all disciplines and as the focal point for    truly international space science.                                                                                                                                                  COSPAR publishes ³Advances in Space Research², a peer-refereed journal to disseminate sc  ientificresults.  COSPAR advises, as required, the United Nations and other intergovernmental                                                                                       organizations on space research matters and provides an assessment of the utilization of  space to advance scientific issues.  COSPAR strives to promote the use of space science   for the benefit of mankind and for its adoption by developing countries and new           space-faring nations.Invitation                                                                                                                                                                          You are invited to participate in the 37th COSPAR Scientific Assembly in Montreal, Canada,on 13-20 July 2008.  Information on the COSPAR Scientific Assembly, including venue and   accommodations, is available at http://www.cospar-assembly.org.                                                                                                                     The COSPAR Scientific Commission A on Space Studies of the Earth¹s Surface, Meteorology a nd                                                                                        Climate has organized an exciting program.  Symposium A11 is entitled ³Atmospheric Remoted                                                                                          Sensing: Surface Layer, Troposphere, Stratosphere and Climate², and the Main Scientific   Organizer (MSO) is Dr.                                                                    Edward Llewellyn.  Symposium A21 is entitled ³Ocean Processes and Operational Oceanograph y:                                                                                        Combining Space and In Situ Data With Models², with MSO Dr. Patrick Vincent.  Symposium A 31                                                                                        is entitled ³Space Data Utilization for Earth², with MSO Dr. Nadine Gobron.  Each sympos  ium willcover many important topics, and additional information is described at           http://www.cospar-assembly.org.                                                                                                                                                     You are invited to contribute a presentation or presentations to Symposium A11, A21 and   A31.
