IAU Symposium 335: Space Weather of the Heliosphere: Processes and Forecasts

Start Date
End Date
We are pleased to announce that the 2017 IAU Symposium 335 "Space Weather of the Heliosphere: Processes and Forecasts", will be held at the University of Exeter, Devon, UK, from the 17th to the 21st of July 2017. We look forward to welcoming you. Space weather is increasingly recognised as an international challenge faced by several communities. The ability to understand, monitor and forecast the space weather of the Earth and the heliosphere is of paramount importance for our high-technology society and for the current rapid developments in knowledge and exploration within our Solar System. The symposium is planned over 5 days from Monday through Friday (including half-day excursion on the Wednesday afternoon). Key Topics of the scientific program are the following:Solar drivers and activity levels;
Solar wind and heliosphere;
Impact of solar wind, structures and radiation on and within terrestrial and planetary environments (including magnetospheres, ionospheres and atmospheres);
Long-term trends and predictions for space weather;
Challenges and strategy plans for Earth and the heliosphere;
Forecasting models;
Space weather monitoring, instrumentation, data and services. The Symposium aims to further knowledge on space weather by linking various aspects of research in solar, heliospheric and planetary physics, and by putting great emphasis on cross-disciplinary developments, merging different communities, learning from interplanetary comparisons and linking to atmospheric and meteorological research for the first time at the international level. Further details at www.exeter.ac.uk/iaus335
