Fourteenth European Space Weather Week
Nov 27 - Dec 1, 2017, Ostend, Belgium

Topical Discussion Meetings

A key part of the European Space Weather Weeks are the Topical Discussion Meetings. These meetings provide the opportunity for interested participants to address key issues in a style that complements the sessions but differs considerebly. Topical Discussion Meetings are open to all ESWW14 participants.

A Topical Discussion Meeting aims at active participation or interaction between the participants. The participants work and discuss on a predefined theme or problem heading towards an outcome or target.
A working meeting is a 1h 15min informal afternoon meeting with NO abstract submission form and therefore NO poster contributions.
