 African Geophysical Society (AGS) Conference on Space Weather 2019
Cairo, EGYPT, 25÷28 March 2019
We are pleased to invite you to the conference 'African Geophysical Society (AGS) Conference on Space Weather 2019', to be held in Cairo, EGYPT, from 25÷28 March 2019.
Space weather is a global challenge that requires improved and sustained international coordination to respond to severe space weather events. There is a need for advanced space weather models, forecast tools and data-sharing, which is the main concern of AGS2019 sessions. AGS2019 sessions will discuss the global forecast, nowcast and space weather warning capabilities needed to improve predictions and preparedness for space weather events.
In the context of that topic, AGS2019 will highlight the need of more international cooperation and effort toward establishing a global space weather warning network.
In addition to the enrichment of scientific knowledge and research capability committed to the young African researchers , ASG2019 would be an effective tool to raise the awareness on impacts of space weather phenomenon among African policymakers, designers and engineers.
• Solar active phenomena;
• Space Weather prediction and forecasting;
• Ionospheric Irregularities and Geomagnetic Disturbances;
