Dear Editor,
Please post the following in the next edition of the SPA newsletter.
Thank You,

> Boston University
> This year the Center for Integrated Space Weather Modeling (CISM) 
> Summer School will be held at Boston University, July 18 – July 29, 
> 2011. The two-week school will closely follow the model of the 
> previous successful Summer Schools, which comprehensively immersed 
> students in the subject of space weather, what it is, what it does, 
> and what can be done about it. The CISM summer school supplements 
> standard curricula relating to the physics, “meteorology”, and 
> “climatology” of space with integrated overviews of the 
> solar-terrestrial weather system from the Sun to the earth, its 
> effects and consequences, and the state of the art in modeling it. A 
> unique feature of the school is a series of three-hour computer labs 
> where students use visualizations of computer model results being 
> developed by CISM, along with data to understand the space environment 
> and to make space weather predictions. The team of instructors will be 
> led by Jeffrey Hughes (BU), and include experts from various 
> institutions such as UCAR/HAO, SWPC and AFRL.
> The school is intended primarily for students about to enter graduate 
> school in the space sciences or early in their graduate careers. We 
> encourage supervisors to recommend the school to their prospective or 
> current students. However others with a professional interest in space 
> weather have also attended and benefited from earlier schools. Further 
> details and the application form (available beginning in March of 
> 2011), including a request for financial support, can be found under 
> Summer School on the CISM web site at http://www.bu.edu/CISM/. 
> Applications are due by May 1. CISM is an NSF Science and Technology 
> Center.
