Call for Papers: HEPPA-SOLARIS 2012

The 4th International HEPPA Workshop (High-Energy Particle Precipitation in the Atmosphere) will take place in conjunction with the SOLARIS (Solar Influences on SPARC, Stratospheric Processes and their Role in Climate), from 9th to 12th October 2012, at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, Colorado, USA.

From the organisers: "Please join us for a four-day workshop focused on observational and modeling studies of the influences of solar radiation and energetic particle precipitation (EPP) on the atmosphere and climate. The meeting will last four full days, beginning Tuesday morning, 9 October. Broad topics to be covered include the causes and phenomenology of solar radiation and energetic particle variability, mechanisms by which radiative and particle forcing affect atmospheric chemistry and dynamics, contributions of solar and EPP forcing to climate variability and space weather, and the current state of the art and outlook for relevant observations and models."

"Format: Because of the interdisciplinary nature of this workshop, there will be several plenary sessions during which invited tutorials and overview talks will be geared toward the general audience. All contributed presentations will be given in the form of posters, for which individual, sequential sessions will be scheduled. All contributors will be given the opportunity to present a one-slide summary of their posters in the oral plenary sessions. Lively discussions will be encouraged, with abundant time for collegial interactions during poster sessions. The last day of the meeting will be reserved for the HEPPA and SOLARIS model/measurement inter-comparison working groups, which are open to all interested participants."

Please refer to the meeting web pages for more information.

Registration and abstract deadline is 17th August 2012.
