Graduate (PhD) students working in space weather related field whose research will benefit from the school program and advanced undergraduates (MS/MTech) students who are desirous of pursuing a research career in space sciences.
The Science for Space Weather workshop will host a space weather school “Introduction to Space Weather: Concepts and Tools” leveraging the Community Coordinated Modeling Center's (CCMC) Space Weather training program known as the Space Weather Research, Education and Development Initiative (Space Weather REDI, http://ccmc.gsfc.nasa.gov/support/SWREDI/swredi.php). This training program will be held the full day on Sunday on 24 January 2016 and will be followed by interactive programs and demo sessions throughout the week of the workshop from 25-29 January 2016. During the workshop students will also get a chance to listen to talks by leading space weather scientists from around the world and interact with them.
The school will be a mix of introductory tutorials, demos and hands-on Labs. While the inaugural one-day introductory program and training is geared towards students who seek to gain a broad overview of space weather domains, concepts and tools/resources, scientists and researchers who plan on attending the Science for Space Weather workshop will also benefit from this program. A social dinner is planned where students can meet with the lecturers, get to know each other and have discussions. In addition, demonstrations of specific tools, information on resources and how to best utilize CCMC’s models and web-based resources for science and space weather purposes will be conducted during the week. CCMC team members attending the workshop will be available during the entire week (24-29 January 2016) for advising and additional demos and discussions.
The school is being led and organized by CCMC’s specialized space weather scientists and invited space weather experts from different organizations. Regional support is being provided by the Center of Excellence in Space Sciences India (CESSI, IISER Kolkata). The school is co-sponsored by CAU, CESSI, COSPAR, ILWS and SCOSTEP.
