The 4th PSTEP International Symposium (PSTEP-4)
and the 2nd ISEE Symposium “Toward the Solar-Terrestrial Environmental Prediction as Science and Social Infrastructure”
(3rd announcement )

It is our great pleasure to announce that the 4th PSTEP International Symposium (PSTEP-4) and the 2nd ISEE Symposium will be held at Nagoya University on January 28 to 30, 2020.

Project for Solar-Terrestrial Environment Prediction (PSTEP) launched in 2015 in order to improve the synergy between the basic research of solar-terrestrial environment and the forecast operation of space weather and space climate is closing on March 2020. The International Symposium PSTEP-4 and the 2nd ISEE Symposium will be organized to summarize the results of PSTEP and to promote the international research of solar-terrestrial environment prediction. The symposium will consist of invited talks and contributed (oral and poster) presentations for the following topics:

– Operational forecast of space weather
– Prediction of geo-space dynamics
– Prediction of solar storms
– Prediction of the solar cycle and the solar influence on climate

We welcome the participation and presentation of everyone who is interested in any fields related to PSTEP.

Date: January 28 (Tuesday) to 30 (Thursday), 2020
