(1) International CAWSES-II Symposium (Nov.18-22, 2013 at Nagoya, Japan) Abstract Submission Deadline: June 30, 2013.


From Kazuo Shiokawa <shiokawa at stelab.nagoya-u.ac.jp>.

The abstract submission deadline is approaching in one month for the International CAWSES-II Symposium which will be held on November 18-22, 2013, at Nagoya, Japan. Please submit your abstract in your earliest convenience from http://www.stelab.nagoya-u.ac.jp/cawses2013/.

This International CAWSES-II Symposium hosted by SCOSTEP (Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics) will provide an excellent opportunity to discuss the scientific accomplishments of CAWSES-II and look forward to SCOSTEP's future programs at a moment toward the end of its five-year period.

(2) First announcement of the 12th International Conference on Substorms (ICS-12) (Nov.10-14, 2014 at Ise-Shima, Japan).


From Kazuo Shiokawa <shiokawa at stelab.nagoya-u.ac.jp>.

Venue: Ise-Shima Royal Hotel, Shima, Japan http://www.daiwaresort.jp/en/ise/index.html/ Date: November 10-14, 2014

Over the half century since the first finding of the auroral substorm by Akasofu (1964), auroral and magnetospheric substorm has been one of the main topic for the scientists in space physics. Not only giving the spectacular auroral view, substorm contains various fundamental processes of plasma acceleration and dissipation in the magnetosphere and the ionosphere. Recent satellite missions of THEMIS and Van Allen Probes as well as several modeling efforts are giving more insights into the relationship between the mid-tail plasma sheet and the inner magnetosphere and the relationship between substorms and storms. Extended ground imager, radar, and magnetometer arrays provide more complex dynamical features of the magnetosphere during subtorms.

During ICS-12 we are going to highlight the most recent results in substorm research. Topical sessions may cover substorm processes in the tail, interaction between the tail and the inner magnetosphere and ionosphere, substorm currents and its dynamics, and the role of substorm in geospace energetics, as well as the role of MHD and kinetic instabilities in substorms. Other substorm-related researches are also welcomed, such as storm-substorm relationship, ULF/ELF/VLF waves, and non-Earth substorm-like features. Ample opportunity will be given for discussions on the new results.
