Eighth European Space Weather Week (Namur, Belgium, Nov. 28 - Dec. 2, 2011)

European Space Weather Week

We are pleased to announce that the Eighth European Space Weather Week will take place at the Palais des Congres, Namur, Belgium between 28th November and 2nd December 2011.

This meeting is being jointly organized by the Solar-Terrestrial Centre of Excellence (STCE), ESA, the SWWT and the COST ES0803 communities. The local organization is done by the STCE. This event will continue to build on the advances made during the first seven European Space Weather Weeks held between 2004 and 2010.

Now in its 8th year, the ESWW has grown into the main annual event in the European Space Weather calendar. This year's event will highlight key innovations in space weather research, applications and services. The meeting will also focus on current challenges and actions necessary in moving towards a sustainable Space Weather Infrastructure in Europe able to meet the requirements of a diverse end-user community.

Recent Space Weather related activities in the framework of the ESA Space Situational Awareness programme and the EC's 7th Framework Programme will be a key topic. Next step will be presented with the opportunity for technical discussion. Community input is welcome and encouraged in particular via the SWWT plenary meeting.

Abstract submission is open.

Oral and poster contributions are welcome to all sessions.
The deadline for submission is 16th September.

Selected oral or poster papers presented at ESWW8 will be invited to be submitted to the Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate (SWSC).
