Fifteenth European Space Weather Week
November 5 - 9, 2018, Leuven, Belgium

Topical Discussion Meetings

A Topical Discussion Meeting aims at active participation or interaction between the participants. The discussion doesn't have to stop when the TDM ends: simply grab a TDM convener for a discussion.

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.
