Upcoming Events

  • The 25th International Conference on Numerical Simulation of Plasmas (ICNSP 2017)
    18-20 September 2017, Leuven, Belgium
    The ICNSP, the International Conference on Numerical Simulation of Plasmas, is bringing together the leading researchers in the field of computational plasma physics to discuss advanced models, methods and algorithms to solve higher dimensional, complex non-linear problems.
  • The International Study of Earth-Affecting Solar Transients (ISEST)
    18-22 September 2017, Jeju, Republic of Korea
    The International Study of Earth-Affecting Solar Transients (ISEST) Workshop is aimed at bringing together scientists from different countries to interact and establish collaborative links that can effectively address the physical mechanisms regarding the origin, propagation, and Earth impact of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and other transient events. The ISEST 2017 Workshop is the latest of a series of workshops organized by the ISEST project, which is one of the four projects of SCOSTEP's VarSITI program (2014-2018). The ultimate goal of the ISEST project is to develop the capability to predict the arrival and geoeffectiveness and other space-weather consequences of solar transients.
  • International Workshop on Solar, Heliospheric & Magnetospheric Radioastronomy
    06-10 November 2017, Meudon, France
    Jean-Louis Steinbeg has been one of the major pioneers in radioastronomy. Co-founder of the Nançay Observatory, he has actively participated to, an inspired a large number of radio instruments on many international space missions. Jean-Louis Steinberg is the founder of the Space Radioastronomy laboratory of the Paris Observatory in 1963. Later on, this laboratory widened its science interests and became the DESPA (1971) and then the current LESIA (2002) which is one of the major space sciences laboratories in France. The aim of this workshop is to cover the science topics which Jean-Louis Steinberg has promoted during his career, focusing on Solar, Heliospheric & Magnetospheric radioastronomy & physics. This will be done by covering both observations from either ground facilities (NDA, RH, LOFAR, Artemis etc ...) or space missions (ISSEE, Ulysses, WIND, CLUSTER, STEREO, CASSINI, JUNO etc ...) and models/theories. A series of invited talks is also foreseen to cover the new developments in the discipline which may come with the future facilities such as Solar Orbiter, Solar Probe Plus, JUICE, JUNO, LOFAR+, SKA etc .... This workshop will also be the opportunity to remember both the extraordinary personal & professional lifes of Jean-Louis Steinberg especially for new generation of scientists. At the occasion of this workshop it is also expected that the Building 16 (historical Space Sciences building) on the Meudon campus will be renamed "Building Jean-Louis Steinberg".
  • European Space Weather Week 14
    27 November - 01 December 2017, Belgium
    The ESWW is the main annual event in the European Space Weather calendar. It is the European forum for Space Weather as proven by the high attendance to the past editions. The agenda will be composed of plenary/parallel sessions, working meetings and dedicated events for service end-users. The ESWW will again adopt the central aim of bringing together the diverse groups in Europe working on different aspects of Space Weather.
    08-09 February 2018, Noordwijk, Netherlands
    The aim of this symposium is to reflect on the results of the Horizon 2000 missions and their contribution to our present understanding of the Universe.
