SCOSTEP NSP Call for Feedback

May 25, 2018, from Ioannis Daglis

Dear Colleagues,

The SCOSTEP Bureau has established a committee to coordinate the design of SCOSTEP’s Next Scientific Program (NSP), which will cover the period from 2019 to 2022. This committee has prepared a document describing the NSP, which is accessible at:!Akpx0yeihiGHoRrANb2ZkIa_f-Gm

The central scientific topic of the NSP is the predictability of the Sun-Earth system at various time scales.

The NSP committee invites feedback from the scientific community, in the form of white papers, or short comments, or even verbally to one or more of the committee members, which are listed with their email addresses in the NSP document mentioned above. Please send your feedback until July 31, 2018!

To encourage an open and transparent discussion, all white papers will be made publicly viewable at:!Akpx0yeihiGHoRtUB6m2wPKVk8cc

In addition, there will be public opportunities to provide input at discussion sessions to be held at

– the Workshop “Solar Influences on the Magnetosphere, Ionosphere and Atmosphere” in Primorsko (Bulgaria) on 4-8 June

– the SCOSTEP 14th Quadrennial Solar-Terrestrial Physics Symposium in Toronto (Canada) on 9-13 July

– the 42nd COSPAR General Assembly in Pasadena, California (USA) on 14-22 July

The NSP committee will use the feedback received to produce a second draft and issue another call for feedback in autumn. The goal of the committee is to have a final description of the NSP by the end of February 2019.
