The X Workshop Lidar Measurements in Latin America (WLMLA) will be held at Medellín, Colombia, from 19th to 23th November, 2018.

The WLMLA is a biannual meeting, where the Latin American's lidar researchers and students join together to share knowledge among them as well as with researchers worldwide.

The particular goals of the Workshop are to promote communication and cooperation between scientific members of the LIDAR community in Latin America, and to plan future LIDAR research projects to strength the Latin-American Lidar Network (LALINET). The basic school on lidar has become a good chance for students of Latin America over the past workshops. This event is also a great opportunity for lidar and environmental companies to contact potential clients in Latin American lidar working groups.

The host of the X WLMLA, the Lasers and Espectroscopy Group (Universidad Nacional de Colombia Sede Medellín) is inviting to Lidar students and researchers for getting together to discuss over future directions on this topic, and encourages to young scientists to attend and present work, ensuring the strength of the field of laser remote sensing.
