Solar and Space Weather Workshop in Aberystwyth

The Fifth LOFAR Solar and Space Weather KSP Workshop will be hosted by Aberystwyth University and held in Aberystwyth, Wales, UK, during 28-30 June 2011.

The workshop commences at 09:30h on 28th June and finishes at 12:30h on 30th June. It will focus on the progress of Solar and Space Weather KSP LOFAR; commissioning work, results to date, future commissioning work and how it is to be achieved. It is anticipated that some demonstration and/or tutorial sessions will be possible on how we use LOFAR to make solar and interplanetary scintillation observations, and data analysis progress at this time.

Please register your intention to attend by e-mailing Drs. Mario Bisi (Mario [dot] Bisi [at] aber [dot] ac [dot] uk) and Richard Fallows (raf [at] aber [dot] ac [dot] uk) no later than Wednesday, 15th June 2011 at 23:59h.

This workshop will focus on the commissioning work for this KSP and not on the science; the science has been well-discussed at previous workshops and we assume it is now well-known to most KSP members. Please indicate in your E-Mail if you wish to give a talk and include title, author list, and a brief abstract, but please note the following requests:
  • The science should be limited to a brief summary of the techniques and preferably no more than one slide of results.
  • The main part of the talk should focus on:
    • How you wish to use LOFAR to achieve your science aims.
    • The data product(s) you require or will develop through the use of LOFAR for Solar and Space Weather work.
    • Thoughts on how these may be created/implemented if they are not standards which have been determined already.
The Workshop web pages can be found at These pages include information on travel and accommodation (under "Workshop Information").

Registration deadline extended to 15th June 2011.
