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.

During a TDM, a near real-time report will be made. Shortly after a TDM, this near real-time made report made will be made available for all ESWW14 participants on the TDM webpage.
If ESWW14 participants were not able to attend a TDM, they can still check what happened and grab a TDM convener for a discussion.
