EWWW 2023: call for sessions + declaration of interest for hosting future ESWW

Each year, during the European Space Weather Week (ESWW) conference, people from all over the world gather to discuss the newest insights and state-of-the-art in space weather and space climate; endeavouring to address the challenges and impacts of space weather. Science, data exploitation, observations, service development, operational models, engineering, instrument and platform developments, data pipelines, industrial challenges, etc., are all relevant and some of the most important aspects of space weather.

The overarching theme for ESWW2023 in Toulouse (20-24 November 2023) is ‘Bringing Space Weather, Space Climate and Engineering Together’, with a number of session topics reflecting this theme. The conference will be held once again in hybrid format and the conference website is available here: ESWW2023

One of the strengths of the conference is that the participants can contribute significantly to its content. Those interested in convening a session at ESWW2023 may submit a proposal for a session in one of the three formats:

For more information on the plans and expectations for these session types please visit the meeting website.

The online submission opens on the 10th of February and the deadline for submission is 12th of April 2023. The submission system will be accessible from the 10th of February at this link.

When submitting a session proposal, the following is required:

There are some further details depending on the type of the session for which the submission applies. Diversity in conveners is encouraged, and the successful conveners will need to have at least one session chair that can attend in person, in Toulouse (can be decided at a later stage). The ESWW Programme Committee (PC) will decide which of the submitted sessions are accepted. The PC strongly encourages those who have not previously submitted to convene a session to do so. Session conveners will be notified by mid-May.

In order to lower our carbon footprint by reducing our travels, several additional events (ISWAT, E-SWAN Space Weather and Space Climate School, Sustainability Workshop) are likely to be held the week and week-end preceding ESWW2023 at or near the same venue in Toulouse. The details of these additional events are being discussed between E-SWAN, the LOC and the associated organisations. More information will be sent out to the ESWW community in the coming weeks.

The European Space Weather Week (ESWW) Programme Committee (PC) is also issuing a call for preliminary declarations of interest by teams planning to submit a proposal to form the LOCs of the ESWW for 1 or more years in the period from 2025 to 2029 (inclusive). It is important that a declaration of interest is submitted in order to have a good chance to be chosen. More information is available here.

The deadline for this initial declaration of interest in forming the LOC for a future ESWW is 31st March 2023.

Prévision du prochain cycle solaire 25

Nous approchons ou avons atteint le minimum d’activité du cycle solaire de 11 ans (dit numéro 24) ayant commencé en 2009. Comment ce cycle 24 se situe-t-il dans l’historique des cycles solaires? Quelle sera l’intensité du cycle suivant (le numéro 25) et quand sonmaximum sera-t-il atteint ? Voici quelques-unes des questions que nous allons aborder dans cet état des lieux sur notre belle étoile, le Soleil, à la suite de la première prévision publiée en avril 2019 par le panel d’experts NASA/NOAA sur le cycle solaire 25.
