We have now opened the abstract-submission portal for our upcoming “UK Space Weather & Space Environment Meeting I: Transitioning from the SWIMMR Space-Weather Programme”; please see: https://iop.eventsair.com/ukswse2023/abstract-submission. The meeting will be held 12-15 September 2023 at the Mercure Holland House Hotel & Spa, in Cardiff, Wales, UK. This is the first UK-focussed meeting and is timed as such to coincide with the latter part of the SWIMMR (Space Weather Instrumentation, Measurement, Modelling and Risk) Programme (see: https://www.ralspace.stfc.ac.uk/Pages/SWIMMR.aspx) building off the previous successful SWIMMR Symposia meetings as well as the UK’s hosting of ESWW2021 in Glasgow. This will be the start of an international meeting series with a UK core.
We have categorised the abstract submissions into the following ‘broad themes’, with an “Other” category for any other aspects of the space environment (space weather, space safety, SSA, engineering, forecasting, science, education, outreach, etc…) that you feel does not fall into the six defined titles:
– Policy and Strategy
– Space Weather Science and Forecasting
– Space Sustainability
– Industry and Users
– Space Domain Awareness (SST, SSA, Space Environment)
The abstract-submission deadline is 23:59:59UT on Wednesday 31st May 2023 – but please submit as early as possible and do not wait until the deadline.
Abstracts can be up to 300 words in plain text only, and you can submit more than one abstract if you wish. The submitting author does not have to be the presenting author. There is an expectation that by submitting an abstract, the presenting author will go on to register (when registration opens some time in May 2023) and come to Cardiff to present at the meeting. You can submit your abstract(s) for an oral or a poster preference, but please note that this is just a preference, and the organisers reserve the right to change the presentation type when trying to make-up and balance the overall programme. There is scope for multiple parallel sessions.
Registration details to follow in subsequent communications and at the website (so please check back regularly). The meeting is open to the world, and indeed we encourage international involvements and collaborations.
We look forward to welcoming you to Cardiff in September.
