The AMS Committee on Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography and Climatology and the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) held a very successful joint 2013 EUMETSAT Satellite Conference/19th Conference on Satellite Meteorology and Oceanography held at the historic Hofburg Palace in Vienna, Austria, September 16-20, 2013.  This conference hosted over 500 delegates from 45 countries (135 participants from the USA), 352 oral presentations, 230 posters, 4 workshops, 3 social events and a plenary featuring the President of the European Meteorological Society and American Meteorological Society.  At the conference banquet our AMS Committee on Satellite Meteorology, Oceanography and Climatology was proud to recognize 35+ years of exemplary service by Dr. Johannes Schmetz, EUMETSAT's Chief Scientist.
