Dear CEDAR colleagues,

This is a final reminder that the deadline for registration for the workshop 'System-Scale Data Analysis to Resolve Thermospheric Joule Heating' is in less than a week, on this Monday (the 23rd).

If you wish to attend, we kindly ask that you preregister on the following site: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/system-scale-data-analysis-to-resolve-thermospheric-joule-heating-tickets-42453674082, since onsite payment is not possible. The registration site also has practical details for attendees, including hotel information, and travel advice for getting to the British Antarctic Survey.  Note that financial support is available for attending postgraduate students.

Event summary:
The aim of this workshop is to give a forum for discussing of the interdisciplinary utility of data-driven analytical techniques, and the best ways to harness the potential of the available large datasets which are driving advances in near-Earth space research.  The specific focus of the workshop is on the intrinsically interdisciplinary problem of resolving Joule heating - the transfer of energy from electrical currents in the ionosphere to the neutral particles of the upper atmosphere.

Presentation schedule:
09:30 - 10:15: Keynote
-- Brian Anderson: On Multi-Scale Assessment of Ionospheric Electromagnetic Energy Input
10:15 - 11:15: Session 1: Seasons and Solar Cycles
-- Sandra Chapman: Reproducible aspects of the climate of space weather over the last five solar cycles
-- Colin Forsyth: Seasonal and temporal variations of field-aligned currents and ground magnetic deflections during substorms
11:15 - 12:00: Posters and refreshments
12:00 - 13:00: Session 2: Scale-Coupling in Space and Time
-- Daniel Whiter: Quantifying the effects of fine scale electric fields on Joule heating
-- Maria-Theresia Walach: Characterising and understanding temporal variability in ionospheric flows using SuperDARN data
13:00 - 14:00: Break for lunch.
14:00 - 15:15: Poster Session, refreshments, discussion topic suggestions
15:15 - 16:45: Session 3: Magnetosphere-Ionosphere Coupling from Low-Earth Orbit
-- Steve Milan: Linear and non-linear dimensionality reduction techniques applied to AMPERE observations of field-aligned currents
-- Karl M. Laundal: An empirical model of horizontal ionospheric currents from magnetic field measurements at low Earth orbit
-- Delores Knipp: Poynting Flux Calculated along DMSP F15 orbits
16:45 - 17:30: Discussion Session
