Dear ISWI Participant:
Many of you attended earlier this year this workshop in Fukuoka, Japan:
"2015 UN/Japan Workshop on Space Weather".
If you would like to host a space weather workshop in your own country some day, the first step is to publicize the Fukuoka workshop through newspaper articles, magazine articles, web articles, and so on. This is to have your local and national authorities become aware of such important UN events -- it is all part of a time-consuming education process for officials not familiar with such international events. So please write such articles this summer/winter, and make yourself the author (only author). Submit to a suitable place for publication.
And then: Please send them to me. I will circulate them through this newsletter, for all to see. They become models for others to follow.

It has not yet been sent to the UN General Assembly, so minor changes are still possible.

 Remote Sensing of the Inner Heliosphere and Space Weather Applications Workshop, Morelia, Mexico, 20-24 October 2015.
We announce the "Third Remote Sensing of the Inner Heliosphere and Space Weather Applications Workshop" to be hosted by Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) and held in Morelia, Michoac?, Mexico, 20-24 October 2015. The workshop aims to gather experts from the various fields of remote-sensing observations of the inner heliosphere, including white-light, EUV, and radio observation, together with modellers in order to tackle key outstanding science and space-weather operational issues, establish closer working relations, and devise the best ways to move the field forward as a whole. In addition, the science learned from remote-sensing observations is critical to improving our capabilities of space-weather forecasting. The workshop aims to look at ways in which we can more easily and efficiently share and access the various types of data between individual groups and sub-communities and to officially launch the IPS Common Data Format v1.0 (IPSCDFv1.0) now in use. It also aims to allow investigations into ways in which we model the inner heliosphere looking at the advantages and disadvantages of the available modelling, updates on present and future remote-sensing capabilities, and investigating further the ways in which these data sets all complement each other and are necessary to gain knowledge and understanding of the fundamental physical processes that occur within the inner heliosphere. These are critical processes that are key to both Heliophysics science as well as to pace-weather operations and forecasting.
It is anticipated that the Workshop will focus on topics such as (but not limited to) the following:
Venue Unidad Michoac?, Instituto de Geofisica, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) campus Morelia, Morelia, Michoac?, Mexico.
J. Americo Gonzalez-Esparza (SCIESMEX, UNAM, Mexico), Mario M. Bisi (STFC RAL Space, UK) Bernard V. Jackson (UCSD, USA) David Webb (BC, USA)
Further information about registration, scientific program, financial support, etc., will be posted soon at the following site. http://www.sciesmex.unam.mx/workshop2015

 "ISWI instrument distribution"
Mitko, who runs the ISWI Website, has informed this newsletter that he has updated the "ISWI instrument distribution" section of this website. Hence, please have a look at it.
In particular, he wishes to highlight the expansion activities of the CALLISTO Project (of Christian Monstein) -- it has gone up by 18 sites according to Mitko. Mitko says that Christian is a hard worker -- and I emphatically agree with that comment. Christian is a truly dedicated contributor to ISWI in terms of installations and of capacity building. My hat is off to him.
If you are expanding your ISWI array, please be sure to inform the ISWI Newsletter and the ISWI website so that we can publicize your efforts.
