 Geospace Revisited: a Cluster/MAARBLE/Van Allen Probes Conference
Rhodes (Greece), 15-20 September 2014
Conference website: http://geospacerev.space.noa.gr/
This conference aims at revisiting long-standing issues of geospace dynamic phenomena. New data from space missions like Cluster, THEMIS and the more recent Van Allen Probes, along with measurements from ground-based magnetometer arrays around the globe, processed with new methods and combined with theory and simulations are expected to shed light on the complex interplay of particles, fields and waves in geospace, and in particular the inner magnetosphere (radiation belts and ring current). Geospace Revisited will be held at the Rodos Palace Hotel (http://www.rodos-palace.gr/) on 15-20 September 2014. More details in this attached pdf

 The Office for Outer Space Affairs, as the Executive Secretariat of the International Committee on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (ICG), together with the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP, Italy), the Institute of Scientific Research of Boston College (B.C., USA) and the University of Rwanda (UR) will jointly organize and support "African School on Space Science: Related Applications and Awareness for sustainable development of the region" to be held in Kigali, Rwanda, from 30 June to 11 July 2014.
The course will count on prestigious lecturers to be provided by expert space scientists and will cover topics relative to the physical phenomena of the solar-magnetospherespheric coupling that give rise to Space Weather and its impact on the near-Earth space environment and the technology driven activities.

 "The Space Weather Innovation Competition 2013" was held from May-September 2013 in Malaysia under the 2013 National Innovation Movement Program. This competition was organized by the National Space Agency (ANGKASA) and UKM through Institute of Space Science with the collaboration of the Ministry of Education (MoE). The aim of the competition was to promote awareness and better understanding of space weather among high school students in Malaysia, in addition to cultivating students' interest in research through the usage of the SuperSID ionospheric monitor.
