Space Weather Forecasting Session at the ESWW15

April 19, 2018, from Anastasios Anastasiadis

Dear colleagues,

The European Space Weather Week (ESWW15, this year takes place from 5 – 9 November in Leuven, Belgium.
We warmly invite abstract submissions to our session entitled: “Unveiling Current Challenges in Space Weather Forecasting”.

The ESWW15 meeting details can be found in the conference website where the necessary guide and links to the abstract submission page are also present.

The deadline for abstract submission is May 18, 2018 (included).

Session Abstract:

Predicting the conditions of our space environment is a true challenge, due to the large size of the system and the complex interplay of physical mechanisms. Nowadays, forecasting techniques range from physics-based to data-driven statistical models. Massively expanded data availability and sophisticated means to analyze voluminous and complex information open new possibilities to innovative methodologies. This session is devoted to the broad spectrum of advanced forecasting techniques, including physical models, statistical methods, data assimilation, information theory, and machine learning. The goal of this session is to provide a forum for new and ongoing efforts that connect the dots between space weather research and future operational forecasting applications. We invite abstracts covering observations, models, and their combinations. Methods that use innovative and multidisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome.


Kind regards,
Anastasios Anastasiadis
