The AGU Space Weather Journal is announcing a Special Collection “Space Weather Capabilities Assessment: International Forum”. This special issue highlights progress of working teams of the International Forum on Space Weather Capabilities Assessment. The Forum activities have been initiated during the International CCMC - LWS Working Meeting: “Assessing Space Weather Understanding and Applications”, April 3 - 7, 2017, Cape Canaveral, Florida.  The Forum is addressing the need to quantify and to track progress over time in the field of space weather and to establish internationally recognized set of metrics and benchmarks for objective evaluations that are meaningful to end-users of space weather information, model developers, and decision makers. Expected outcomes of Forum activities include developing means to aid in tracking the progress of the LWS program towards its goals. Topics covered by the special collection include: defining metrics for essential space weather quantities; benchmarking the current state of space environment models, applications and forecasting techniques; addressing challenges in data-model comparisons; tracking progress in incorporation of scientific ideas into space weather applications. This special collection will include contributions from the Forum working teams and the community. If you have questions about this special collection please contact the associate editor for the special collection (Dan Welling) or special collection organizers (Masha Kuznetsova, Leila Mays, Yihua Zheng, Ja Soon Shim).  The special collection is now open for submissions.  Submitting authors will find the special selection available upon submitting their manuscript via AGU's GEMS submission website: https://spaceweather-submit.agu.org/cgi-bin/main.plex. The submission deadline is May 18th, 2018.
