Dear ISWI Participant:
Please note the announcement for "SCOSTEP/ISWI International School on Space Science" that will be held in November in India. If you supervise students, please encourage the best and brightest of them to attend this school. These schools are always an inspiration to those who can participate in these schools -- I say this from experience.

 2016 International Sunanda and Santimay Basu Early Career Award
I would like to invite you to submit nominations for the 2016 International
Sunanda and Santimay Basu Early Career Award.
The deadline for nominations is April 15, 2016.
Established in 2008, the Sunanda and Santimay Basu Early Career Award in Sun-Earth Systems Science is given annually to one early career scientist (within seven years of the award of Ph.D. or highest equivalent terminal degree) from a developing nation in recognition of outstanding contributions to research in Sun-Earth systems science that further the understanding of both plasma physical processes and their applications for the benefit of society.
Eligible nominees (1) have been awarded the degree of Ph.D. (or highest equivalent terminal degree) have completed their degree requirements during the seven-year time period prior to the award presentation year (1 January 2009 - 31 December 2015); and (2) currently live and work in developing nations. Consideration is to be given to nominees who have overcome obstacles in attaining their research objectives.
The award includes:

 6th IAGA/ICMA/SCOSTEP Workshop on Vertical Coupling in the Atmosphere-Ionosphere System, Taipei Taiwan, July 25–29, 2016
We would like to invite you to the 6th IAGA/ICMA/SCOSTEP Workshop on Vertical Coupling in the Atmosphere-Ionosphere System, to be held in Taipei Taiwan from July 25–29, 2016.
We encourage abstracts related to all aspects of atmosphere - ionosphere coupling, including lower atmospheric wave and tidal sources, wave and tidal propagation through the middle and upper atmosphere, as well as mechanisms and variability in the mesosphere, thermosphere, and ionosphere system due to their effects. Abstracts related to the ongoing VarSITI ROSMIC project, as well as potential manifestations of ENSO signatures in the middle and upper atmosphere, as well as the ionosphere are particularly encouraged.
Registration and abstract submission are due by June 1, 2016. A limited amount of travel support is available, with applications due by May 10, 2016. For more information and registration, please visit the workshop website at: http://www.ss.ncu.edu.tw/~vcais6/

 SCOSTEP/ISWI International School on Space Science,
November 7–10, 2016, Sangli, Maharashtra, India
The SCOSTEP/ISWI International School on Space Science will be held at the Smt. Kasturbai Walchand College of Science & Arts, Sangli, India during November 7 to 17, 2016. The school will be an excellent learning and enrichment opportunity for graduate students. The school is aimed at students who are perusing PhD in solar terrestrial physics and space science. Some masters students who have already some exposures in solar/space physics may also apply. Some financial assistance will be provided to students and scientists attending the school. Indian students will be reimbursed with train fare from their home institution. Total number of students to be selected 40 (from India) + 20 international. All selected students will be provided with local hospitality. The School is primarily sponsored by the Scientific Committee on Solar]Terrestrial Physics (SCOSTEP) and the International Space Weather Initiative (ISWI). There are also co]sponsors from many institutions in India and Japan.
Further details on the School schedule and on-line application are available at http://www.iiap.res.in/meet/school_meet/index.php
