Topical Discussion Meetings
It is a habit at the European Space Weather Week (ESWW) conference, that participants contribute largely to its content.
Topical Discussion Meetings are an important part of the program and are organised by a round table format
with plenty of room for discussion.
Discussions on the newest insights in space weather, on the challenges and threats
that space weather imposes, discussions on science, data exploitation, observations, service development,
operational models, engineering, industrial challenges, ... all are relevant and eligible for a Topical Discussion Meeting.
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.
Discussion - slido
Submit questions or comments for the discussion in advance by clicking slido in the scheme below.
To start the discussions
it is now possible to submit questions beforehand. The tool used is slido.
For each TDM there is a link to a specific slido event. Adding a question is as simple as clicking the
link of the TDM of your choice, type a question, optionally give your name, and send the question.
You can vote for an already given question to increase the attention to that question.
The discussion doesn't have to stop when the TDM ends: simply grab a TDM convener for discussion. Knocking down the convener however is not allowed.
TDM conveners will be asked to make a report on their TDM. These reports will be made available on this webpage as soon as
we received them. Check the ESWW2018 TDM page
for the reports
of last year.
For TDM conveners
