Sixth European Space Weather Week
16-20 November, 2009 - Brugge, Belgium

The sixth European Space Weather Week will take place in Brugge, Belgium, from Monday 16th November to Friday 20th November 2009.

This meeting is being jointly organised by the Solar-Terrestrial Centre of Excellence (STCE), ESA, the SWWT and the COST ES0803 communities. The local organisation is done by the STCE. This event will build on the advances made during previous European Space Weather Weeks and preceding ESA Space Weather Applications Workshops.

The ESWW will again adopt the central aim of bringing together diverse communities working on all elements of space weather with a strong focus on user involvement. This year’s meeting will discuss recent advances in both scientific and applications based domains and how these advances relate to user needs. It will also provide an opportunity to discuss the Space Weather community’s contribution to possible future ESA action in the area of Space Situational Awareness. New data, tools and techniques will also be discussed and demonstrated during the workshop with a view to aiding the transition between new scientific results and user-oriented space weather services.

This year's event will include a second space weather fair, where users and service providers will have the opportunity to interact in an informal working environment. The meeting will also include a number of hands-on splinter sessions and will explore community development through several dedicated business meetings.
