Monday morning November 17, 2008, a space weather tutorial is foreseen.
It is divided into three parts: the science, effects and applications, conclusions
in a non usual form. It will be given at a master level.
All attendees of the space weather week are welcome, but we hope that especially
students and young engineers attend this special event.|
The invited speakers are Juha-Pekka Luntama (FMI) and Eamonn Daly (ESA/ESTEC). The conclusions will be done in the form of a quiz, a matter to have a light start of the week. The winner goes home with something typical Belgian (no beer!). The price will be given at the conference dinner.
Practical: Monday November 17, 9:30-11:30. The tutorial will take place in the Lippens auditorium, the room where the plenairy sessions take places.
Is this your first European Space Weather Week? Not sure what to attend, how to contribute,
where to go for advice? What are the splinters about? |
The First Attendees Meeting (FAM) is organized for people new in space weather and for those coming for the first time to the space weather week. We present ourselves and the organization. We continue during a joint informal small lunch. At the same time, we get to know you and your interrests in space weather. This can be a first informal easy contact with the space weather community.
Practical: Monday November 17, 12:00-12:45. The FAM will start in the Lippens auditorium, the room where the plenairy sessions take places.
|We encourage everybody to give clear, understandable presentations, oral and in poster form. Both an oral presentation and poster will be selected by the program committee as the winners of 'The Best of the' prize.|
