The deadline for the abstract submission to the SCAR OSC 2016 (Kuala 
Lumpur, 22-26 August 2016, http://scar2016.com/) has been extended 29 Feb 
2016, but the new deadline is fast approaching. A list of useful 
information regarding the meeting is listed below:

1) Symposia and Sessions descriptions 

Specific solar-terrestrial physics sessions of interest:

   S15. Solar-terrestrial physics in the polar regions. Conveners (Session 
15): Emilia Correia, Brazil; Maurizio Candidi, Italy; Craig J. Rodger, New 
Zealand; Yasmina M. Martos, UK

   S16. Global navigation satellite system research and applications. 
Conveners (Session 16): Giorgiana de Franceschi, Italy; Paul Prikryl, 
Canada; Nicolas Bergeot, Belgium; Elizabeth Petrie, UK

4) SERAnt (Sun-Earth Relationships and Antarctica) Working Group Meeting 
will be held on Sunday 21 August from 16.00 to 19.00 at the University of 
Malaya, IPS building, 4th floor, room Cube 2.

People interested in sessions 15 and 16 should consider participating in 
the session. Important issues will be discussed, particularly the 
possibility that a new and more ambitious Scientific Research Program 
(SRP) is launched, focussed on the science of ionospheric propagation and 
the effects on it of solar phenomena, to give our discipline more 
visibility within SCAR. This new program would include GRAPE groups (GRAPE 
is the SCAR expert group GNSS Research and Application for Polar 
Environment: http://www.grape.scar.org/). We will discuss ways to improve 
such SRP with wider perspectives by SERAnt groups.

More detail on the proposed new SERAnt action group is now online:
