From Mike Wiltberger (wiltbemj@ucar.edu).

Dear Colleagues,

As part of the 2013-2022 NRC Decadal Strategy for Solar and Space (www.nas.edu/ssb), a Boulder, CO area Town Hall Meeting will be held at the NCAR/HAO Center Green Auditorium (http://www.hao.ucar.edu/hao/location.php) on Friday October 1 from 4-5 PM.

The Boulder community members of the National Research Council Decadal Strategy for Solar and Space Physics invite your participation at this meeting to learn more about the recently initiated Decadal Survey and for us to gather community advice and ideas for this vital activity in setting our Nation’s priorities for Solar and Space Physics in the next decade.

We are particularly interested in communicating information about the importance and value that will be placed on the community input in the form of “concept papers,” (e.g., mission, observation, theory, or modeling activity) that identifies and motivates one or more new or existing science or societal objectives and promises to advance the scientific objectives, contribute to fundamental understanding of the Sun-Earth/planetary system, and/or facilitate the connection between science and societal needs (e.g., improvements in space weather prediction). Details on how to submit a paper and other information about the Decadal Survey are on the NRC website: www.nas.edu/ssb (click on “A Decadal Strategy for Solar and Space Physics”). Concept paper responses are due by November 12, 2010.

We look forward to meeting with you, and please spread the word about this meeting to your solar and space physics colleagues.

Organizers:

Sarah Gibson (NCAR HAO), sgibson@ucar.edu

Michael Wiltberger (NCAR HAO), wiltbemj@ucar.edu

From Harlan Spence <Harlan.Spence at unh.edu>.

The New England Community members of the National Research Council (NRC) Decadal Strategy for Solar and Space Physics and organizers of the New England Space Science Consortium (NESSC) invite your participation at a community meeting to learn more about the recently initiated Decadal Survey. We will gather community advice and solicit ideas for this vital activity in setting our Nation's priorities for Solar and Space Science in the next decade.

We are particularly interested in communicating information about the importance and value that will be placed on the community input in the form of "concept papers," (e.g., mission, observation, theory, or modeling activity) that identifies and motivates one or more new or existing science or societal objectives and promises to advance the scientific objectives, contribute to fundamental understanding of the Sun-Earth/planetary system, and/or facilitate the connection between science and societal needs (e.g., improvements in space weather prediction).
