Topical Discussion Meetings

List of submitted 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.

A Topical Discussion Meeting is a discussion or round table. The conveners introduce their meeting in 15 min followed by a 50 min discussion. The conveners appoint a secretary who makes the report/minutes near real-time. For the secretaries convenience, the PC offers a template - see link below.
The title and the abstract of a Topical Discussion Meeting are published online. Since a TDM is a forum for discussion, conveners don’t need to fix a speaker list or program.

Shortly after the TDM, the near real-time made report made will be made available for all ESWW14 participants on the TDM webpage.
Please email the minutes to the LOC asap.

Technical assistance
The ESWW LOC takes care of the logistics: a projection screen, a laptop for presentations and audio. The ESWW LOC will give the technical support to get the meeting started. Except, in the room 'Delvaux', a person for technical assistance is always present.
