STP-12 will be held in the week prior to the COSPAR Scientific Assembly in Bremen.
This is the twelfth in the series of Solar-Terrestrial Physics Symposia organized by SCOSTEP (Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics). They are held on an approximately quadrennial basis. The main goal of SCOSTEP is to organize scientific programs in the solar-terrestrial environment. The current program is Climate and Weather in the Sun-Earth System (CAWSES), which has the overall goals of fostering a scientific approach to understanding the short term (Space Weather) and long term (Space Climate) variability of the integrated solar-terrestrial environment, and for its societal applications and CAWSES-II: Toward Solar Maximum runs from 2009 to 2013.
The main thrust of CAWSES is to treat the entire solar-terrestrial domain as one system, rather than treating each region independently. CAWSES-I covered the descending phase of the solar cycle from 2004 to 2008, whereas CAWSES-II covers the rising phase of the solar cycle.
The following scientific sessions of STP12 are grouped according to the major themes of CAWSES:
STP-12 provides an excellent opportunity to discuss the scientific accomplishments of the CAWSES programs. It will allow the community to present on the many outcomes from CAWSES-I as well as discuss initial results from CAWSES-II. Each morning the symposium will offer tutorial lectures/keynotes that will be of interest to all participants and will provide more specific sessions in the afternoon. All those who are involved and/or interested in CAWSES are welcomed to Berlin.
