Space weather is an emerging research area within space science that is rapidly gaining importance and public recognition because of its technological and societal impact. A recent report from the National Research Council estimated the potential economic damage from a large geomagnetic storm at $1-2T with 4-10 years of recovery time [Baker et al., 2008]. Thus, space weather is a national security issue and it is not surprising that governments around the globe are strengthening their space weather policies and capabilities.
Space weather is extremely multidisciplinary as it encompasses space and plasma physics (coupled across a variety of spatial and temporal scales), computational science (as it requires sophisticated computational tools running on high performance computing platforms) and engineering (as its ultimate goal is to protect infrastructure in space and on the ground).
This workshop will bring together international leaders in different areas of space weather with the aim of
The workshop will be organized around the following main themes:
(1) Physics of geomagnetic storms and substorms
(2) Coupling of microscopic and macroscopic scales
(3) Space weather modeling approaches
(4) Applications (spacecraft charging, ground-induced currents, ...)
How far are we from predictive capabilities for space weather?
