   SECOND AND FINAL ANNOUNCEMENT OF COSPAR SYMPOSIUM D0.5

          SPACE WEATHER: PHYSICS AND APPLICATIONS

The 32nd COSPAR Scientific Assembly will be held in Nagoya, Japan 
over the period July 12-19, 1998. Within this Assembly are a number
of Symposia. This is the first announcement for Symposium D0.5 on the 
topic of "Space Weather: Physics and Applications" which is scheduled 
to occupy four half days on July 17 and 18 during the meeting. This 
Symposium is co-sponsored by IAGA and SCOSTEP. The description of the 
Symposium and the names and contact information regarding the Program 
Committee are as follows:

DESCRIPTION OF SYMPOSIUM D0.5

It has become increasingly apparent that some technological systems, 
in space or on the ground, are susceptible to the consequences of the 
interaction of the solar wind with the earth's magnetosphere.  For 
that reason, the need to be able to predict large "events" such as 
magnetic storms has excited the interest of the scientists around the 
world.  To predict such events demands an understanding of their 
source involving processes on the Sun, in the heliosphere, and in the 
magnetosphere-ionosphere system.  This Symposium lasts four 4 half 
days.  It will consist of both invited and contributed papers on the 
physics and phenomenology of the disturbances which can disrupt 
technological systems, and on techniques developed to predict those 
disturbances, as well as descriptions of technological systems that 
are vulnerable to "space weather" disturbances.  Papers involving 
data analysis, computer modeling, theory, or any combination of these 
are appropriate for this Symposium.

A. Klimas (U.S.A.), M. Lester (United Kingdom), K. Marubashi (Japan),  
R. Pirjola (Finland), G. Reeves (U.S.A.), R. Schwenn (Germany),


THE ABSTRACT DEADLINE IS January 9, 1998. Abstracts may be submitted
electronically or in typed form. Information about submission of 
abstracts can be obtained from the World Wide Web at

http://www.copernicus.org/COSPAR/COSPAR.html

Instructions for submission of abstracts are as follows:

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARING ABSTRACTS

Abstracts should be in English and prepared as indicated below 
Typed abstracts should be in camera-ready form. If they are not 
prepared according to the instructions or if they fail to meet the 
publishing standards, they will not be included in the Book of 
Abstracts. A copy of each abstract should be sent directly to the 
Main Scientific Organizer of the appropriate session, while the 
original should be sent to:

Copernicus Gesellschaft
32nd COSPAR Scientific Assembly
Max-Planck-Str. 13
D-37191 Katlenburg-Lindau
Germany
Tel: (49)-5556-91376
Fax: (49)-5556-4709
Internet: COSPAR@COPERNICUS.ORG
Those authors who have provided their full contact address on their 
abstracts will receive a letter informing them whether their papers 
have been accepted. If the answer is affirmative, they will also 
receive the date and time of their contribution and will be asked to 
inform their co-authors accordingly. This information will be 
circulated in May 1998. Letters of solicitation for solicited/ 
contributed papers may be obtained from the appropriate Main 
Scientific Organizer.

ABSTRACT FORMAT FOR TYPED ABSTRACTS SUBMITTED BY MAIL

12.0 cm (width) x 10.5 cm (height)

TECHNIQUES FOR THE PREPARATION OF ABSTRACTS

A. Aman (1), B. Bman (1, 2) and C. Cman (2)
(1) Institute for Optics, University Katlenburg, (2) LASER Ltd., 
Northeim. bman@katlenburg.edu /Fax: +49-5556-4709

Follow these instructions in preparing your abstract in hard-copy, 
camera-ready format. Abstracts that do not meet this format or that 
are without submittal information will not be processed! Use a laser 
printer or a good typewriter with a plastic carbon ribbon. Since 
there will be a 69% size reduction, do not use a type size smaller 
than 10 pica points. Type all lines flush left! (1) Type title of 
contribution in capital letters and in bold (optional). (2) Leave one 
blank line after the title block. (3) Type author(s) followed 
directly by abbreviation (number/symbol) of corresponding 
affiliation. Underline the name of the author who will present the 
paper; this need not be the first author. (4) Type corresponding 
affiliations in next line. (5) Add e-mail or fax for correspondence. 
(6) Leave one blank line after the author-and-affiliation block. (7) 
Type text of abstract flush left. Mathematical symbols should be 
typed in or drawn neatly in dark ink. Metric (SI) symbols should be 
used. Abstract size block should be drawn only on typing backup 
sheet. (8) Be sure to complete all submittal information. (9) Contact 
WWW or Copernicus for the abstract LaTeX macro package. (10) Mail the 
original to Copernicus and a copy to the appropriate MSO. 
Alternatively, use e-mail and send the original plus your submittal 
information as an ASCII, PS or LaTeX file directly to Copernicus. 
(11) Prepare your slides with your name, a sequence number and a 
thumb mark, and hand them to the projectionist before your session 
starts. (12) The size of the poster boards is 1.0 m (width) x 1.5 m 
(height).

Submittal Information (Type the following information under your 
abstract)
1. Name, full address and telephone, telex, fax & e-mail number for 
correspondence

2. Reference of Meeting/Symposium for which your contribution is 
intended

3. Name of Main Scientific Organizer to whom a copy of your abstract 
has been sent

4. Projection or other equipment such as video projectors, if 
required, in addition to standard (*)

5. Preference for oral or poster presentation

ASSEMBLY PUBLICATIONS

Abstracts of papers to be presented at the 32nd COSPAR Scientific 
Assembly will, if accepted and submitted to the Copernicus 
Gesellschaft by the deadline, be included free of charge in the Book 
of Abstracts and referenced in the Program Booklet. Both issues will 
be distributed free of charge to registered participants.

Printed instructions for abstract preparation are also found in the
August 1997 issue of the COSPAR Information Bulletin, together with
information about accomodations and financial support (which can also 

be found at the WWW address noted above). Please contact the Main
Scientific Organizer for any other questions you might have regarding 

this Symposium.
