*_Course _**_on “The Polar Upper Atmosphere: from Science to Operational 

_*The *International School of Space Science* of the Consorzio 
Interuniversitario per la Fisica Spaziale organizes a Course on *“The 
Polar Upper Atmosphere: from Science to Operational Issues”*, to be held 
in L’Aquila, Italy, *17-21 September 2018*, directed by G. De 
Franceschi, M. Mendillo, C. Mitchell.

The goal of the school is to foster excitement and encourage involvement 
of the next generation of space researchers in studies of the geospace 
environment of Polar Regions.The importance of these regions is rapidly 
growing due to modern society’s dependence on Global Navigation 
Satellite Systems (GNSS) services and products, strongly affected by 
ionospheric variability at high latitudes. Topics will focus on the 
infrastructures for multi-instrument monitoring, data management from 
sub auroral to polar latitudes, the need for specialized models of the 
upper atmosphere, and the development of mitigation algorithms to 
improve GNSS services and products. The school is mainly addressed to 
graduate and post-graduate students with enthusiastic interest on this 
topic. Students-teams will be organized through an “inside team 
building” activity scheduled on the first day of the school.This initial 
activity will formulate, under the supervision of experts, the “first 
iteration” of student-led project proposals. The establishment of the 
student-teams aims to both stimulate the interaction among the new 
generation of scientists from different countries and furnish the 
preliminary tools to build successful project proposals.On the final day 
the students-teams will present their project results and participate in 
their evaluation by the School Program and Organization Committees.

*Applications are due before May 6, 2018.*
