The First International Workshop on Small Satellites for Space Weather Research and Forecasting (Washington DC, Aug 1-4 2017): Second Announcement and Call for Abstracts.

We invite you to take part in the First International Workshop on Smallsats for Space Weather Research and Forecasting (SSWRF). The event will be held at The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC on 1-4 August 2017.


The electronic abstract submission is now open at  sswrf.cua.edu/abstracts.cfm<http://sswrf.cua.edu/abstracts.cfm> . The submission is free.


SSWRF is the first dedicated scientific meeting focusing on specific needs of space weather studies using small space-based platforms.  The workshop encourages a broad scope of contributions related to the application of small satellites to space weather observations, research, analyses, forecasting, and operations, including those utilizing the CubeSat reference design.

The workshop will be organized into the following major themes:

Day 1: Research and Forecasting (Tuesday, August 01 2017)
Day 2: Mission Concepts (Wednesday, August 02 2017)
Day 3: Innovations and Technology (Thursday, August 03 2017)
Day 4: Future Opportunities (Friday, August 04 2017)

Topics of interest:

-       Small satellite observations relevant to space weather of interplanetary, solar, and geospace phenomena.
-       Investigations of space weather effects on small satellites: degraded capabilities, situational awareness, and satellite-debris collisions;
-       Using small satellite data in global space weather simulation and forecasting frameworks;
-       General contributions relevant to small satellite investigations of space weather effects.

Please visit  sswrf.cua.edu<http://sswrf.cua.edu/>  for more details.


Student support applications: 15 April 2017
Abstract submission deadline:  1 May 2017
Online registration: 1 March - 1 June 2017
