Sponsors and Organizers

The 13th Conference on Space Weather is organized by the AMS Committee on Space Weather and is sponsored by the American Meteorological Society.

Call for Papers

The theme for the 2016 AMS Annual Meeting, “Earth System Science in Service to Society,” weaves the many parts of AMS into a common core. Emphasizing the academic and research strength of AMS, the theme also connects that research to the benefits that society gains from our science. AMS merges the physical, chemical, and biological study of the Earth with human-centered “domains of action”: (1) Observing, (2) Analysis and research leading to understanding, (3) Modeling and prediction, and (4) Social sciences – how people deal with Earth. Following this theme, the Conference on Space Weather will solicit papers the following topics:

  • Success stories and lessons learned in Research to Operations (R2O)
  • Impacts of space weather
  • Social science & space weather
  • Advances in space weather observations, modeling, and prediction
  • General contributions
