European Space Weather Week (ESWW): Session and TDM call for ESWW2024 plus announcement of host city for ESWW2027

The European Space Weather Week (ESWW) conference is an excellent opportunity for people from all over the world to gather and discuss the most recent insights in space weather and in space climate, and to address the emerging challenges and impacts.

Science, data exploitation, observations, service development, operational models, engineering and industrial needs are all important aspects of space weather that are addressed. In line with this, the overarching theme for ESWW2024 in Coimbra (4th – 8th November 2024) is “20 years of expanding horizons, from fundamental science to protecting society”.

The ESWW2024 website can be found here:
As in previous editions, the conference will be held in hybrid format.

One of the strengths of ESWW is that participants can contribute significantly to its content through parallel sessions, plenary sessions and Topical Discussion Meetings (TDM).

Parallel and plenary session submissions are open until Wed 27th March 2024 (inclusive).
Those interested in convening a session at ESWW2024 may submit a proposal in one of the following three formats:

  •  Parallel Space Weather Research (SWR)
  •  Parallel 100% Community-Driven (100CD)
  •  Parallel Application Pipeline (APL)

Proponents of 100CD or APL sessions will have the opportunity to request the Programme Committee (PC) consider the promotion of their session to a plenary of 90 minutes fixed duration.

More detailed information and submission instructions can be found on the website:

A TDM aims at active and engaging participation and interaction between the participants. The participants work and discuss on a predefined theme or problem, ideally heading towards an outcome or target. TDMs at ESWW2024 will be 1 hour in duration and the call for convening TDMs is now open with a submission deadline of 10th April 2024 (inclusive):

The PC strongly encourages those who have not previously proposed a session, to do so. In line with our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we welcome and encourage applications from conveners of all backgrounds, including but not limited to, different career stages, geographical locations, ability, genders, and ethnicities. The website will be updated with additional guidelines for sessions and TDMs in the coming days.

Additional events/meetings may be planned for the period preceding ESWW, more information is available here:

Recently the European Space Weather Week (ESWW) Programme Committee (PC) announced that the 2025 and 2026 editions of the conference will be held in Umeå, Sweden and Firenze, Italy respectively. The ESWW PC is now pleased to announce the selected host city for ESWW in 2027 is Dublin, Ireland. As with Sweden and Italy, Ireland has an active and prominent space weather community, and this will be the first occasion that it will be host the event.
