As part of this year's International Astronautical Congress sessions dedicated to space weather and related issues will be organized that should also be highly relevant to ISWI activities. I would greatly appreciate if you would consider submitting an abstract to session E3.2. "Policy and economic aspects of space weather", which is part of the "23rd Symposium on Space Policy, Regulations and Economics".
With best regards,
Space weather slowly emerges as a policy item. While it has long been only a scientific question, its economic relevance is steadily growing due to its effects on commercial space activities in particular in the field of telecommunications. In addition, space weather is expected to become an element of new Space Situational Awareness projects so that international coordination should be foreseen. This session reflects on such questions of impact and coordination.
Chairs: Werner Balogh (UNOOSA), David Kendall (Canadian Space Agency),
Rapporteur: Wolfgang Rathgeber (European Space Policy Institute)
The Call for papers can be found at http://www.iafastro.com/docs/2010/IAC2010_CallForPapers.pdf. Abstracts dealing with issues such as international coordination of space weather-related activities will be very welcome. The deadline for abstract submission is 5 March 2010. Please do not hesitate to contact me (werner.balogh[at]unoosa.org) should you have any question related to this particular session.
For your information please note that in addition there will also be a more technical session D5.3. "Space Weather Prediction and Effects on Space Missions" as part of the "Symposium on Safety, Quality and Knowledge Management in Space Activities".
