MEETING: COSPAR Capacity-Building Workshop – IRI 2017 – NCU, Taoyuan City, Taiwan, Nov 6-17, 2017.

From: Dieter Bilitza <dbilitza at gmu.edu> and Jann-Yenq Liu (Tiger) <tigerjyliu at gmail.com> 

The 2017 International Reference Ionosphere (IRI) Workshop will take place at the National Central University (NCU) in Taoyuan City, Taiwan from November 6 to 17, 2017. The NCU campus is just a short taxi ride from Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport (TPE). The 2-week workshop is supported under the COSPAR Capacity-Building Workshop program and consists of student-oriented lectures and tutorials during the first week followed by the regular IRI science meeting in the second week. The first week activities will introduce graduate students and young researchers to the basics of ionospheric monitoring and modeling and related online resources. The students will work on specific modeling problems in small groups and report their results at the end of the second conference week to the full IRI workshop audience. The second week will be organized as a regular IRI workshop with oral and poster presentations. The special topic of this workshop will be “Improved Real-time Ionospheric Predictions with IRI, COSMIC and other GNSS data”. Papers on general IRI-related topics are also welcome including new data sources and improvements and new additions for IRI. Of special interest are also applications of the IRI model in all areas of technology and science.

A selection of papers from the workshop will make up the core of a special issue of Advances in Space Research on Improved Ionospheric Predictions in Real-Time using IRI, COSMIC and other GNSS data.

Funding will be provided for travel, housing, and meals for a limited number of students from developing countries.  More information about the workshop can be found at https://sites.google.com/view/iri2017workshop-tw including application forms for financial support. The deadline for applications is May 31, 2017.
