Space Weather Workshop: the Meeting of Science, Research, Applications, Operations, and Users, will be held April 24-27, 2013, in Boulder, Colorado.
Space Weather Workshop is an annual conference that brings industry, academia, and government agencies together in a lively dialog about space weather. What began in 1996 as a conference for the space weather user community has evolved into the nation’s leading conference on all issues relating to space weather.
The conference addresses the diverse impacts of space weather on today’s technology. The program highlights space weather impacts in several areas, including communications, navigation, spacecraft operations, aviation, and electric power. The presentations and discussions at the Space Weather Workshop also focus on identifying the highest priority needs for operational services that can guide future research and identifying new high-value capabilities that can be transitioned into operations. The conference fosters communication among researchers, space weather service providers, and users of space weather services.
Researchers have the opportunity to discuss relevant research in many areas of the space environment. Recent progress in large-scale modeling efforts will be featured, while new developments in Sun-to-Earth coupled modeling systems will also be a highlight.
