|posted: Dec 11, 2008|
|The fifth edition of the European Space Weather Week took place in Brussels, Nov 17-21, 2008. The Space Weather week brings together the different space weather actors in Europe: scientists, commercial entities and end-users. The keywords of this year: the ESA Space Situational Awareness action, GNSS, offshore drilling, magnetic surveying and geomagnetism, space weather models, data-tools-services, solar weather.
Besides the large number of participants (230), the success of the conference was reflected by the numerous (in)formal side meetings. The European Space Weather Week offered a convenient platform to discuss past and future collaborations. Also some special events were organized. The Space Weather Tutorial focused on students and people new to the space weather community. The Space Weather Fair turned into a vivid workshop showing hands-on tools and concrete user-friendly space weather products.
