Operational space weather prediction remains in its infancy. Accordingly, there is considerable scope to integrate best practices from other disciplines (e.g. terrestrial weather forecasting, ground- and space-based observations) into operational space weather systems, and examples of the successful application of such best practices are vitally important in illustrating how things should be done. Furthermore, organisations such as the World Meteorological Organization and the International Space Environment Service play an important role in developing and implementing guidelines for best practice in operational space weather activities. We welcome contributions covering all aspects of this topic. We particularly welcome "use cases" showing how good practice has been followed in developing new operational space weather prediction services (e.g., WSA Enlil predictions), and also presentations highlighting results from ESA/EC projects focused on applying models or analysis tools for operational implementation. We also welcome assessments from end users on how well operational services meet their requirements, as well as how this feedback can be used to drive further operational improvements. We also seek contributions covering other relevant areas, such as: - robustness, reliability and testing of near-real time observation processing and space weather prediction modelling; - use of near real time verification to assess system performance and to act as a benchmark against which future improvements can be measured; - system resilience (e.g., backup data streams, 24/7 operations.
