1. Advanced Study Institute on Space Weather (ESA support)
*********************************************************
From E. Daly                   E-mail: edaly@estec.esa.nl

The European Space Agency (ESA) is willing to sponsor
partially the  attendance of up to three young engineers or
scientists from ESA  member states to attend the Advanced
Study Institute in June (see
http://sat2.space.noa.gr/~daglis/asi2000.html). The partial
support will  take the form of a contribution to the travel and
subsistence up to a  ceiling of 1000 Euros. Applicants should
send a brief letter of request  and CV to Dr. Eamonn Daly
(edaly@estec.esa.nl), ESA/ESTEC by 31  January.

2. Space Weather Week (Meeting Scheduled for May 1-5, 2000)
*********************************************************
From: Barbara Poppe            E-mail: poppe@sec.noaa.gov

Space Environment Center will host the second annual Space
Weather  Week during the week of May 1, 2000 in Boulder,
Colorado.  Space  Weather Week will include the Research-to-
Operations Workshop (co- organized by Air Force Research
Laboratory and NSF Division of  Atmospheric Science), the
SEC Users Conference (co-sponsored by  Aerospace Corp.,
SUNBURST, and the U.S. Coast  Guard).  The  meeting will
provide an opportunity for modelers to describe  tools that  will
soon be available for space weather services, and will  provide
an  opportunity for the space weather operations centers and
users  of space  weather services to describe their current
capabilities and their   priorities for improving services.  By
combining the Users Conference,  the  Research-to-Operations
Workshop, and the Vendors Meeting, these  overlapping
communities will be able to assess the needs for enhanced
operational  services and to assess the capabilities and
limitations of our  scientific  and operational tools.  Further
details regarding the meeting  agenda and  travel details will be
announced in the near future.
