Call for Papers 2014 URSI National Meeting Session:
"Lightning and its Interaction with the Ionosphere"

From:   Joseph Dwyer (jdwyer at fit.edu)

Joint session organized by Commissions E, G and H: Lightning and its Interaction with the Ionosphere at 2014 URSI National Meeting in Boulder, Colorado, January 8-14, 2014.

This session will cover all aspects of lightning and the coupling between lightning and the ionosphere/thermosphere/mesosphere system. Papers are solicited on experimental and theoretical results in studies of lightning and the energetic coupling of tropospheric thunderstorms to the mesospheric and ionospheric regions. Contributions on lightning physics, lightning detection and measurements, X-rays or Gamma-rays from thunderclouds and lightning, sprites, jets, elves, and related electromagnetic effects are welcome, as are those on related topics, such as the local and global effects of these processes, and other related nonlinear electromagnetic wave/ionosphere interactions.

The DEADLINE for online submission of abstracts is SEPTEMBER 23, 2013.

The web page http://www.nrsmboulder.org contains general information along with abstract submission instructions and guidelines. To submit an abstract, go to http://www.nrsmboulder.org/content/abstract-submissions and follow the link from there. Last year's login accounts remain active on the system.

In addition, we encourage submissions of full papers by students to the annual Student Paper Competition, which are due on the same date. Please see http://www.nrsmboulder.org/content/ernest-k-smith-usnc-ursi-student-prize-paper-competition for more information. The three student finalists in this competition will present their papers at the plenary session, and win cash prizes.

Travel funding is available for many students presenting papers as a first author. Completed applications for the USNC-URSI Student Travel Support program are also due on September 23. Please see http://www.nrsmboulder.org/content/student-travel-support for eligibility and full requirements.

We also request that submitting authors send an email to the session organizers indicating that you intend to submit a paper.

We look forward to seeing you in Boulder!
