It aims to discuss the adopted approaches and the initial scientific results of the Cosmemos (Cooperative satellite navigation for meteo-marine modelling and services) project in a wider context of international experts.

The meeting will take place on board of the ship Corsica Ferries 'Mega Express Two', being Forship company an official partner of the project. The workshop wants to combine a deep attention to the different scientific issues with an active presence of professionals users, towards which comparing the capability of the project to fit main needs. Main topics discussed will be those of cooperative and Gnss-based observations, data assimilationinto local meteo-marine models and weather ship-routing, looking at the present state of the art and at the most promising directions for future developments.
