ISWI Newsletter - Vol.5 No.16
06 February 2013

Dear ISWI Participant:

There are three items today:

(1) Attached is the final report from the UN on the space weather data symposium that was held in Graz, Austria, last year. The report is in English. All other language versions can be requested by email to Dr Hans Haubold at UNOOSA ( .

(2) Attached is the brochure for "IconSpace2013" in Malaysia. This is the last call for papers. The brochure shows the various dead lines.

(3) Attached is a newspaper item from yesterday's Daily Yomiuri. It is a sample of space-weather-related news that appears in Japanese newspapers from time to time. NICT is a Japanese government agency involved in various space weather activities.

If you see a space weather article in your local press, please send it my way for distribution on this newsletter.

Faithfully and cordially yours,
George Maeda
