Opening of session submission: 10th of February 2023 => Create your account and submit your plenary session proposals at this link.
Deadline for submission: 12th of April 2023
We invite and encourage members of the space weather community to submit a plenary session proposal for ESWW2023. This call is open until Wed 12th April 2023 included. The ESWW plenary sessions form a key component of the conference. They are designed to be open to all attendees and so of interest to the wider space weather community. For ESWW2023, the four plenary session topics are based on the overarching conference theme, « Bringing Space Weather, Space Climate, and Engineering Together ».
When submitting your plenary session proposal, please provide the following: the topic of your plenary session; name, affiliation and email address of three conveners; whether you will be including a panel discussion; your proposed plenary session abstract (max 250 words). Diversity in conveners is encouraged, and at least one convener should be able to attend in-person, in Toulouse. In the proposed plenary session abstract, consider including a bulleted list of areas of submissions you wish to encourage; also consider encouraging an overview talk.
Following the deadline for the proposal of plenary sessions, the PC will select four proposals, the conveners will be notified and a call for abstracts (talks, posters and Quick Views) will be announced.
The four plenary session topics for ESWW2023 are:
- “Synergies Between Ground-Based and Space-Based Instrumentation: What, Where, Why, When, and How?”
- “Launch or Flight Ready: Mitigation, Verification and Engineering Limitations – Exploring Constraints on Observations, Measurements, Power, Data Rates, Data Archiving, Modelling, and Engineered Solutions” (past, present, and the future – including off-the-shelf and innovative solutions)
- “Smallsats, Hosted Payloads, and ‘Piggyback Missions’ for Monitoring the Space Environment – Missions from Europe and Beyond: Advances, Benefits, and Funding Mechanisms”
- “Pathways to Sustainable Global Space-Weather and Space-Climate Monitoring” (here, sustainable can be in any and all contexts and can also include blue-sky thinking).
