14th Spacecraft Charging Technology Conference in Noordwijk, The Netherlands, 4-8 April, 2016.

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the Space Weather Effects on Charging session at the Spacecraft Charging Technology Conference (SCTC).  The SCTC is an international series focusing on the science and technology of electrical charging of spacecraft by the space environment.  The purpose of the conference is to provide opportunities for the presentation, exchange and discussion of research within the overall sphere of spacecraft-plasma interactions, and their impact on spacecraft technology and space plasma science instrumentation.  The charged particle environment in space is very diverse and impacts on spacecraft systems from plasma contacting effects to surface charging, and internal charging.  The detrimental effects of spacecraft charging can impact the performance and survivability of spacecraft.   Conversely, controlled plasma interaction with space systems provides a range of functionality from scientific measurement to propulsion.

Subjects for contributions include:  Spacecraft surface and internal charging, Plasma and electric field instruments, Plasma, ion, and electron emission, Electric propulsion effects, Electro-dynamic and electrostatic tethers, Active plasma experiments, Solar array and high voltage plasma interactions, Environment specification, Spacecraft induced environment anomalies, Electrostatic discharge, Radiation and temperature effects on conductivity, Electrostatic properties of spacecraft materials, Hypervelocity impact plasma, and Planetary environments (including charged dust).

Abstracts are due December 18, 2015.  Abstract submission:  http://www.congrexprojects.com/2016-events/14sctc/abstract-submission

Space Weather Effects on Charging Co-Chairs
