Data Assimilation is concerned with the reconstruction of the state of a dynamical system from measured data. This is a key ingredient for important applications, for example for Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) or predictions of Climate Change. With the German Symposium on Data Assimilation we aim to make a visible contribution to the further development of the field and nurture a vivid research environment within Germany and beyond involving several important universities, operational centers and research institutes. In a framework which consists of keynote lectures by selected international experts in the field, invited talks and an extended poster session (please register!) we aim to have time for mutual exchange and discussions in a relaxed and stimulating environment at the Conference Area Blue of the headquarters of Deutscher Wetterdienst, Offenbach.
