(The March 4th deadline for submitting applications has now passed)

The 2016 Space Weather Workshop conference will be held this Spring, April 26-29, 2016, at the Omni Interlocken Hotel in Broomfield, Colorado. This meeting will focus on the impacts of space weather and on recent scientific advances in specifying and predicting the conditions in the space environment. The conference program will highlight space weather impacts in several areas of the environment, including ionospheric disturbances, satellite drag, auroral currents, geomagnetic storms and their solar drivers, radiation belts, and solar energetic particles.  We anticipate that representatives from industries impacted by space weather will attend, including those from electric power, commercial airlines, satellite operations, and navigation/communication. Space Weather Workshop 2016 is co-sponsored by the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center, NASA Heliophysics Division, and the NSF Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Science. 

Support will include:

  • Conference registration
  • Welcome Networking Session and Banquet
  • $100 stipend for per diem
  • Shared lodging
  • Transportation to/from the Denver airport (airfare not included)
