**********************************************************************


From: Peggy Ann Shea and Don Smart <sssrc at msn.com>


The submission date for submittal of manuscripts to the special issue of 

Advances in Space Research has been extended to 1 August 2009.  This 

extension is to allow participants in the Boulder, Colorado Space Weather 

Workshop (28 April - 1 May) to submit appropriate papers to this issue.


This topical issue is not a conference proceedings but is open to all 

scientists who may have an appropriate scientific paper related to the title 

of the issue.  Manuscripts on both scientific research results and 

programmatic issues are appropriate for this special publication.


Papers must be submitted electronically to ees.elsevier.com/asr.  To ensure 

that all manuscripts are correctly identified for inclusion into the special 

issue, authors must select "S.I.: Space Weather Advances" when they reach 

the "Article Type" step in the submission process.


Submitted papers must be written in English and should include full 

affiliation addresses for all authors.  Only full-length papers will be 

considered for publication, subject to peer review by two reviewers.  There 

are no page limits although the length of the paper should be appropriate 

for the material being presented.  Papers will be published electronically 

as soon as they are accepted.  Contributors to this issue(s) will have an 

opportunity to purchase individual issues at 40 Euro per issue.  All 

articles will be typeset at no cost to the author; there is a nominal charge 

for printing color figures although there is no charge for color figures on 

the electronic version.


Dr. Anna Belehaki (belehaki@space.noa.gr) is the Managing Guest Editor for 

this special issue.  She will be assisted by Drs. Alexi Glover, Mike Hapgood 

and Ronald Van der Linden.  Questions can be directed to Dr. Belehaki or to 

the Editor-in-Chief of ASR, Peggy Ann Shea (sssrc@msn.com).


The general format for submission of papers is on the ASR Elsevier web site; 

format questions can be directed to Peggy Ann Shea.

2. The 14th International EISCAT Workshop, Tromso, Norway, 3 and 7 

  August 2009.

From: Thomas Ulich <thu at sgo.fi> 


The 14th International EISCAT Workshop will take place in Tromso, Norway, 

between 3 and 7 August 2009.


This incoherent scatter radar workshop will cover results from areas 

including the International Polar Year, the middle atmosphere, solar wind 

and magnetosphere, auroral phenomena/ionosphere and thermosphere, 

structure and dynamics of the polar cap and cusp, meteors, and ionospheric 

heating. We also welcome abstracts on space weather (including space 

debris). In addition to scientific results there will be sessions on new 

radar plans and techniques (e.g. EISCAT_3D, AMISR and the new Antarctic 

radar). Oral or poster contributions are welcome. The abstract deadline is 

May 15, 2009.


The venue is the Rica Ishavshotel, situated on the water's edge in the 

colourful seaport and university city of Tromso. More details about the 

workshop can be found at the official website at:

Important dates:


Workshop: 3-7 August 2009


Abstract deadline: 15 May 2009


Registration deadline: 15 May 2009
