Dear CEDAR scientists,

I would like to invite you to participate in the mini-GEM sessions titled “3D ionospheric electrodynamics and its impact on the magnetosphere - ionosphere - thermosphere (MIT) coupled system”. They will be held between 12:00 - 5:00pm on December 9 (Sunday before the AGU meeting) at the Hilton Old Town Alexandria in Alexandria, Virginia, ~30mins away from the AGU convention center.

Here is a tentative schedule for our MIT sessions. Please check the updated schedule at the following website.
