(1) Special issue of Advances in Space Research with IRI-related papers - due February 20, 2014.


Dieter Bilitza and Bodo Reinisch (dbilitza at gmu.edu, Bodo.Reinisch at digisonde.com).

Papers are invited for a special issue of the Journal of Advances in Space Research that will focus on ionospheric modelling studies related to the International Reference Ionosphere (IRI). The core set of papers will be from the 2013 IRI Workshop in Olsztyn, Poland that had as its main topic the use of GNSS data for the improvement and evaluation of IRI. Papers on all topics related to ionospheric modelling in the context of the IRI project are welcome including comparisons with new data sources, and global, regional, and local improvements and applications of the IRI model. Of special interest are papers on assimilating and updating the IRI model with real-time measurements from the ground and from space. The issue editors are Bodo Reinisch and Dieter Bilitza. The submission site is http://ees.elsevier.com/jasr/ (Advances in Space Research). Please select "IRI and GNSS" in the special issue drop-down. The hard deadline for submission is February 20, 2014. Papers will be published electronically as soon as they are accepted. The printed issue will be assembled within a reasonable time with late papers being printed in regular issues of ASR.


(2) 2014 CCMC Student Research Contest Announcement.


From Ja Soon Shim <jasoon.shim at nasa.gov> and Rebekah M. Evans Frolov <rebekah.e.frolov at nasa.gov>.

The Community Coordinated Modeling Center and the National Science Foundation are pleased to announce the third annual CCMC Student Research Contest.

Undergraduate and graduate students who are using (or have recently used) CCMC tools and services in a research project or as a part of coursework are invited to enter the contest. Any students who participated in the first or second contest and are still involved in space research - we encourage you to submit a report on your new work.

Winners will be invited to present their work at the 2014 CEDAR, GEM, and SHINE workshops. New this year - the winner of the new Space Weather category will be invited to attend the Space Weather Workshop in Boulder, CO (http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/sww/).

For more information, please visit: http://ccmc.gsfc.nasa.gov/support/contest-2014/

Please contact <rebekah.e.frolov at nasa.gov> with any questions you may have, and forward this email to your colleagues!

Thanks,

Rebekah M. Evans Frolov <rebekah.e.frolov at nasa.gov>


(3) Jicamarca International Research Experience Program - JIREP 2014 - applications due January 24, 2014.


From <sandra.mendieta at jro.igp.gob.pe> and <jirep@jro.igp.gob.pe>.

The students will work with staff engineers and scientists on projects related to ongoing research or instrumentation development programs. Research may be conducted in neutral atmospheric and ionospheric science as well as radar/radio instrumentation and software development. Given its location, frequency of operation, and array system, most JRO's research capabilities are unique. Besides the unique research capabilities where students are welcomed to propose and run their own experiments, JRO offers a good opportunity to get hands-on-experience on different aspects of radar systems, from changing the antenna connections, improving RF components of the system, to develop sophisticated acquisition and processing programs.

A side benefit of the program is that students will get to know Peru, heir to ancient cultures and rich colonial tradition. This program is offered to junior/senior undergraduate and/or first and second year graduate students and will cover the travel expenses (to and from Lima), as well as a reasonable stipend. Given that the Observatory is located outside Lima city, transportation will be provided.

  • Application deadline: January 24, 2014
  • Decision: February 20, 2014
  • Starting date: Anytime between May 12 until June 20, 2014
  • Duration: 10 weeks

More information and application/recommendation forms can be found at http://jro.igp.gob.pe/jirep/ or by contacting us at jirep@jro.igp.gob.pe

(4) Tenth Latin American Conference on Space Geophysics (X COLAGE), Cuzco, Peru, September 8-12, 2014.


From <sandra.mendieta at jro.igp.gob.pe>.

First announcement

The tenth Latin American Conference on Space Geophysics (X COLAGE) will be held in Cuzco, Peru on September 8-12, 2014. This conference, organized by the ALAGE (Latin American Association of Space Geophysics), gathers scientists and students interested in the following areas of research: middle and high-altitude atmosphere; the ionosphere; the magnetosphere; the interplanetary medium; cosmic rays; the planets, satellites, minor planets and other bodies; the sun and solar-terrestrial interactions.

X COLAGE will be followed by the International School on Space Science, which is sponsored by the Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics (SCOSTEP) and the International Space Weather Initiative (ISWI). This school will take place in Lima, Peru on September 15-24, 2014. The school will be an excellent learning and enrichment opportunity for students that also attend the X COLAGE.

Further information about registration, scientific program, financial support, etc., will be posted soon at the following site. http://jro.igp.gob.pe/x_colage

We look forward to your participation in these events.
