(1) CEDAR Prize nominations due Friday 21 February to Josh Semeter.


From Josh Semeter <jls at bu.edu> and Barbara Emery <emery at ucar.edu>.

Nominations for the CEDAR Prize lecture are due Friday February 21 via a .docx or text sent email to Josh Semeter <jls at bu.edu>. A nomination consists of three items:

  • Name
  • Paper Citation(s) centered on at least one peer-reviewed publication within the previous four years
  • A brief statement of why the research is important.

The CEDAR Prize lecture was instituted in 1989 and honors an outstanding science contribution to CEDAR. The recipient of the award presents an invited 45 minute talk at the annual CEDAR meeting in June. The nomination is based on a research paper reported in a peer-reviewed publication within the previous four years. A list of nomination criteria and past CEDAR Prize winners is at

(CSSC members are asked to make a nomination using a form on the CSSC wiki.)


(2) Solicitations for CEDAR Workshops due Friday 14 March.


From Sharon Vadas (vasha at cora.nwra.com) and Barbara Emery <emery at ucar.edu>.

The CEDAR Science Steering Committee solicits workshop session proposals for the June 24-28 meeting in Boulder, CO DUE FRIDAY MARCH 14 via the workshop proposal form on-line.

These sessions should support the goals of the NSF CEDAR program. New in 2014 is a box to propose for a "Grand Challenge Workshop". The CSSC will determine a couple of workshops that qualify as a "Grand Challenge" and tutorial speakers may be identified in conjunction with these workshops.

Sessions should address the science priorities in the field of aeronomy and space physics for the upcoming decade described by the recent Decadal Survey for Solar and Space Physics from the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) (see http://sites.nationalacademies.org/ssb/currentprojects/ssb_056864 and the NAS Report in Brief and also the 2013-2022 Decadal Briefing to the CSSC) . Sessions should identify a particular science challenge and outline an approach to meet it. Successful sessions will address 1) how the associated questions will be addressed, 2) what resources exist, are planned, or are needed, and 3) how progress should be measured. The justification for the sessions should also relate to the on-line final (June 2011) version of the CEDAR strategic plan with the addendum from November 2013.

Please see further details in the Guidelines for Workshop Conveners.

Workshop contributors should be apprised of the session goals and encouraged to contribute directly to the effort. Workshop reports will be required within 60 days of the end of the workshop and will be archived on their individual workshop pages on the CEDAR wiki for the 2014 CEDAR Workshop.
