** Second call for the 6th VERSIM workshop
20-23 January 2014, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand

Abstract submission and registrations are now open for the 6th VERSIM workshop 
which will take place in January next year in Dunedin, New Zealand. VERSIM 
(VLF/ELF Remote Sensing of the Ionosphere and Magnetosphere) is a joint working 
group of IAGA and URSI, made up of researchers interested in studying the 
behaviour of the magnetosphere and ionosphere by means of ELF (300 Hz - 3 kHz) 
and VLF (3-30 kHz) radio waves, both naturally and artificially generated.

The working group is broadly interested in ELF/VLF waves, whether they are used 
as remote sensing probes or affect other physical processes. The VERSIM working 
group topics typically include magnetosphere and plasmasphere studies, 
wave-particle interactions in the radiation belts, sub-ionospheric sensing of 
the D-region, lightning and sprites.

The 6th VERSIM workshop is sponsored by the International Union of Radio 
Science (URSI) Commission H and G, the International Association of 
Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA), and the University of Otago.
