Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to participate in the GEM-CEDAR Modeling Challenge Sessions at the 2016 Joint CEDAR-GEM Workshop. We will have three sessions, which will be held on June 20 and 21, 2016 in Sweeney B of Santa Fe Community Convention Center, Santa Fe, NM.

Session 1 (13:30-15:30, Monday, 06/20) will focus on overview topics related to model validation:

1.     Review the status of current CEDAR-GEM Model Validation Challenge projects

2.     Challenges related to data availability and how to address these challenges for specific model validation projects

3.     Uncertainty assessment and sensitivity analysis

4.     Event-based metrics, expanding event list: benefits, challenges, guidelines

5.     Role of magnetospheric drivers and ionospheric feedback

Session 2 (16:00-18:00, Monday, 06/20) will focus on current research and future plans for:

1.     Quantification and validation of phenomena in the auroral region

o   Conductivity

o   Particle precipitation

2.     Validation and metrics selection for auroral boundaries specification and predictions

3.     Quantification and validation of storm-driven ionospheric/thermospheric disturbances

o   Poynting flux/Joule heating

o   TEC, NmF2

o   Neutral density/satellite drag

Session 3 (13:30-15:30, Tuesday, 06/21) will kick off and define a new Ionospheric Conductance Challenge with a discussion of which conductance validation goals will be the most timely and helpful to the GEM-CEDAR community. Please join our discussion of conductance observations and models, and help us get our Conductance Modeling Challenge off to a good start as we discuss available datasets, optimal methods of data-model comparison, and event selection.

Please find more information on the sessions at http://cedarweb.vsp.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/2016_Workshop:GEM_CEDAR_Modeling_Challenge and the CEDAR-GEM Modeling Challenge at http://ccmc.gsfc.nasa.gov/challenges/GEM-CEDAR/

We are soliciting short contributed talks for sessions #1 and #2 and active participation in the challenge-defining discussion planned for session #3. If you are interested in presenting your ideas, please contact Ja Soon Shim (jasoon.shim at nasa.gov<mailto:jasoon.shim at nasa.gov>) or Katherine Garcia-Sage (katherine.garcia-sage at nasa.gov<mailto:katherine.garcia-sage at nasa.gov>).

We look forward seeing you at the sessions.

Best regards,
