Call for Papers: Special Issue of SWSC on Security of Space Assets

With reference to the 8th European Space Weather Week held in Namur, Belgium, from 28th November to 2nd December 2011, we are pleased to invite all contributions, oral and poster, presented in Session 2 "Building the European SSA Space Weather Framework," to be submitted to the special issue: "First results from the EU-FP7 projects on Security of space assets from space weather events" in the Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate.

Deadline for submissions is 30 March 2012. However, if you need some additional time to complete your submission, please do not hesitate to contact the SWSC editorial office at swsc -at- edpsciences.org.

The type of contributions should fit the style of SWSC, which accepts regular research articles, short communications, invited reviews, technical and observational reports, strategic and educational articles and concise project reports. All manuscripts are peer reviewed according to the quality standards of international scientific journals. It is therefore required that all manuscripts submitted for publication in SWSC contain enough new insight; present the results against a properly referenced background of existing work; present adequate evidence that supports the conclusions; write clearly, concisely and comprehensively and include all necessary and appropriate figures and tables but not more.

Accepted papers are published in electronic form only and publication is free of charge.

The Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate (SWSC) is an international, peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary open access journal, which publishes papers on all aspects of space weather and space climate. Guidelines for submission of papers are on the Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate web site under the menu item "Author information" (Instructions for authors).

From: Paola Chiarini, and Mats Ljungqvist, ESWW8 Session 2 conveners as well as Jean Lilensten and Anna Belehaki, EiC for SWSC.
