Talks related to the workshop "The equatorial ionospheric response to coupling from the atmosphere and the magnetosphere and its longitudinal dependence" are welcome. (See the workshop description at http://cedarweb.hao.ucar.edu/wiki/index.php/2012_Workshop:African_ionosphere _and_ISR_radar_plans).

In particular, we seek talks and participation to discussion on the following 3 topics:

  1. New results from Jicamarca, C/NOFS and other equatorial ionospheric sensors --
 ground and space-based
  1. New results in equatorial electrodynamics, thermosphere and irregularities
  2. In addition, we seek brief inputs about science projects that will take

advantage of the planned sensors such as the incoherent scatter radar in Ethiopia, the COSMIC-2 low inclination constellation, and cubesat missions. These inputs can be as short as 1 or 2 slides.

Regarding the six COSMIC-2 satellites scheduled for launch in 2015 into a low inclination (24o) orbit, note that they will carry four sensors: an Ion Velocity Meter, a Planar Langmuir Probe, a multi frequency radio beacon and a GPS Occultation Sensor.

If you intend to give a presentation, please send your suggested title to the 4 organizers before June 18.
