Ninth European Space Weather Week
November 5 - 9, 2012, Brussels, Belgium

We are pleased to announce that the Ninth European Space Weather Week will take place at the Académie Royale de Belgique, Brussels, Belgium between 5 and 9 November 2012.

This meeting is being jointly organised by the Belgian Solar-Terrestrial Center of Excellence (STCE), the COST ES0803 communities, ESA and the Space Weather Working Team. The local organisation is done by the STCE. This event will build on the advances made during previous European Space Weather Weeks and preceding ESA Space Weather Applications Workshops.

Now in its 9th year, the ESWW has grown into the main annual event in the European Space Weather calendar. This year's event will highlight key innovations in space weather research, applications and services. The meeting will also focus on current challenges and actions necessary in moving towards a sustainable Space Weather Infrastructure able to meet the requirements of a diverse end-user community. The final session of the week will present the final results of the COST Action ES0803 "Developing Space Weather Products and Services in Europe".
The meeting will centre on 7 open sessions addressing a number of topical themes. Furthermore, it is expected that the main sessions will again be complemented by a diverse range of splinter and business meetings covering topical themes.
