ISWI Newsletter - Vol.3 No.90
14 October 2011

Dear ISWI Participant:

There are several attachments today.

1st Yesterday, I sent out the Program for UN/Nigeria Workshop on ISWI (Abuja, Nigeria). Please discard it. I attach updated (and final) program -- courtesy of ISOC of this workshop. Please attend the final session (Session 15) as it will be an important general discussion on the ISWI agenda for the coming years. This is the time to present your views and to influence the agenda.

2nd Sessions 6 and 7 are set aside as conference time for various ISWI Instrument Teams -- please see the pdf mentioned above (the first pdf). Attached is the agenda for the MAGDAS Session. (The MAGDAS network now consists of 57 real time magnetometers deployed all over the world.) The agenda for other instrument arrays are not attached because they did not send their information to the ISOC in time for this newsletter release.

3rd This is a really wonderful summer camp report. I hope it will provide the stimulation for more space weather summer camps in the future. I quote the report briefly:

"The Joint Space Weather Summer Camp of UA Huntsville, the German Aerospace Center, the University of Rostock, and the University of Greifswald finished successfully at the University of Alabama Huntsville on 13 August 2011. Over the course of four weeks, from 17th July to 13th August 2011, ten UA Huntsville and ten German undergraduate and graduate students lived together in a non-stationary Summer Camp to get an introduction to mostly all aspects of space weather at various Space Weather monitoring and research facilities in Germany and US."

Huge thanks to N. Jakowski and P. Poete for this contribution to the ISWI Newsletter.

Always faithfully in the service of ISWI,
