BRAMS: Belgian RAdio Meteor Stations

On August 30, the day before the start of the IMC 2023 conference, we organized a workshop dedicated to radio and radar observations of meteors. This was in part motivated by bringing experts together to discuss about future observations with the BRAMS network and what can be achieved with the BRAMS data, but also in part as a tribute to the nice meteor radio school which was held during the last IMC organized in Oostmalle, Belgium, in 2005.  Below you can find the program and the presentations given during this workshop.
