European Space Weather Week 2022 in Zagreb

European Space Weather Week (ESWW) is the main annual event in the European Space Weather calendar. It is an international meeting organised annually within the European Region in collaboration with prominent members of the European space weather community, such as European Space Agency (ESA). It began as a forum for the European Space Weather community and has since grown into an international event with global attendance.

This year ESWW will be co-organised by the Belgian Solar-Terrestrial Centre of Excellence and Hvar Observatory October 24-28, 2022 in Zagreb, Croatia. ESWW2022 will again adopt the central aim of bringing together the diverse groups in Europe working on different aspects of Space Weather and Space Climate: such as scientists, engineers, satellite operators, power grid technicians, communication and navigation specialists, people working in aviation, space weather service providers, STEM practitioners. The ESWW is highly interdisciplinary by nature and actively promotes investigation of new technologies and approaches. In addition, ESWW is an excellent place to meet people, to exchange knowledge and ideas, to discuss the latest on solar activity, how space weather influences the earth environment and our technologies, and how to deal with space weather. The overarching theme for ESWW2022 is ‘The importance of comprehensive space weather monitoring’, with a number of session topics, as well as the special ESWW2022 design reflecting this theme (the call-for-sessions and call-for-design are both currently open).
