7th International HEPPA-SOLARIS Workshop

11-15 June 2018, Roanoke, Virginia, USA
Abstract submission and Invited Presentations

Dear Colleagues,

We welcome you to attend the 7th International HEPPA-SOLARIS 2018 Workshop (
http://www.cpe.vt.edu/heppa.solaris.2018/), which will be held June 11-15,
2018 in Roanoke, Virginia, USA. The workshop will focus on observational
and modeling studies of the influences of solar radiation (SR) and energetic
particle precipitation (EPP) on the atmosphere and climate. The workshop
format includes plenary sessions with both invited and contributed talks,
as well as poster sessions.

Session topics include:

1. Solar and precipitating particle variability

2. Solar photon and particle effects on the stratosphere and above

3. Dynamical processes influencing the coupling of altitude regions

4. Solar and particle effects on the troposphere and climate system
including atmosphere and ocean-atmosphere coupling

5. Tools for assessing solar and precipitating particle influences,
including measurements, models, and techniques

*** Abstract submission for contributed presentations opens 1 March 2018*.


*** Self-nominations of invited presentations are due by 16 March 2018.*

In addition to contributed talks and posters, we solicit ‘self-nominated’
invited talks on HEPPA-SOLARIS related work that is new, timely, creative
and/or controversial. To be considered for an invited talk, please submit
an abstract for a contributed talk, and *also* send a summary of your work
to Dr. Scott Bailey (baileys at vt.edu) before 16 March 2018. We encourage
self-nominations from scientists at all levels, from students to senior

Self-nominations will be reviewed by the HEPPA-SOLARIS Science Organizing
Committee, and all who submit self-nominations will be notified of the
decision by 15 April. If your work is chosen for an invited talk, you will
be sent an official invitation and your contributed abstract will be
converted to an invited abstract.

*** Support for early career scientists*: A limited amount of funding is
available for students and scientists in need of assistance. More
information can be found @ (

The workshop is hosted by the Center for Space Sciences and Engineering at
Virginia Tech and will be held at the Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center.
