PROGRAMME OF ROUND TABLE (NEW!)

"Solar-terrestrial missions in the solar cycle 24: plans and reality"

  1. Future missions.
    • Short presentations (5 minutes): mission news or recent program update
      Speakers: Yu.Kotov, V.Kuznetsov, L.Zelenyi, A.Zhukov, D.Baker (TBC), A.Petrukovich, M.Panasyuk and other participants who can bring new information IN A BULLET SHAPE for the discussion.
    • Possible topics of cooperation or synergy between missions (general discussion).
  2. Research motivations and goals for the future (general discussion and brain storm).
    After an extremely successful decade (1995-2004) for solar-terrestrial science, and facing recent changes in priorities of space agencies, what are the new goals for the next solar cycle? Where is the proper balance between "space weather" and and "space physics" ?
  3. Adjourn
Please contact the moderator of the discussion Dr. A. A. Petrukovich if you want to make a contribution (apetruko@iki.rssi.ru).
