We welcome you to the first online European Space Weather Symposium 2020 (ESWS2020) – a fully online meeting. 

This event is being introduced due to the adverse effects of COVID-19 on our ability to safely meet in person in 2020.  The event will run in the gap that was originally taken up with ESWW2020 in Glasgow, which has now been postponed to 2021 and is otherwise known as ESWW2021.  This ESWS2020 will also serve as a starting point for the introduction of a robust online element to future ESWW events so that the meeting becomes more accessible to a wider set of colleagues from all around the globe.

The ESWS2020 online event will run live for three hours on each of the five days from Monday 2nd November 2020 to Friday 6th November 2020. These sessions have been timed to run from 13:00UT to 16:00UT to try and best facilitate access for all time zones and, if the times just aren’t compatible for you, we are going to be recording each session and doing our best to make it available through this website within hours of the live event for anyone to access in the future.

A key point to note is that you must register before you can submit an abstract to the online meeting.  We are charging just a small nominal fee (approximately equivalent to other meetings’ abstract-submission fees) which will help to cover the costs associated to running the online meeting and any excess will be used to enhance ESWW2021.  This is a not-for-profit meeting.

We look forward to welcoming you, virtually, to our ESWS2020 event over the Zoom platform for which registrations will open on 16th July 2020 and close on Friday 26th September 2020; a full list of deadlines can be found from the link to the right.
