Dear Colleagues,

This is a reminder that at this year’s International Astronautical Congress to be held in Prague, Czech Republic from 27th September to 1st October 2010, there will be session dedicated to policy and economic aspects of space weather. I would like to invite you to consider submitting an abstract to session "E3.2. Policy and economic aspects of space weather" which will be held as part of the 23rd Symposium on Space Policy, Regulations and Economics.

Session Description:

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, but also on ground-based infrastructures. In addition, space weather is expected to become an element of new Space

Situational Awareness projects so that international coordination should be foreseen.

ISWI-related papers are particularly welcome!

The Call for papers can be found at
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 ( if you have any questions related to this particular session.

With best regards,
Werner Balogh
