2011 ISWI-Europe Summer School in Space Science

August 21-27, 2011, Astronomical Institute of the SAS, Tatranská Lomnica, Slovakia


Background Information

The ISWI is a follow-up activity to the successful IHY 2007 (that conducted many programs not only to popularise space science all over the world but also to create favorable conditions for joint research and training in some sort of global framework), but focusing exclusively on space weather. European scientists are successfully participating in the ISWI and many research level scientific instruments have been installed in many parts of Europe in the framework of the IHY and ISWI. In oder to make maximum use of these and other similar initiatives and establish strong space research groups in Europe, a high level training of young students and researchers is very crucial. The present summer school is a continuation of the African Regional ISWI School, which was conducted during October 28-November 4, 2010 in Ethiopia and its major objectives include teaching the fundamental knowledge and skills in

  • Fundamental and Space Physics
  • Computational Space Physics
  • Modern data analysis and Interpretation Methods
  • Scientific Instrumentation for Space Exploration
  • Programming using Open source.
