SPACE WEATHER CONFERENCE for CHINESE & OVERSEAS
17 to 23 August, 2003
Fujian (Mt. Wuyi), China
1. General Information
National Natural Science Foundation of China，Chinese Academy of Sciences and Laboratory for Space Weather (LSW), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) will host the SPACE WEATHER CONFERENCE for CHINESE & OVERSEAS at Fujian (Mt. Wuyi), China on August 17 ~ 23, 2003.
This conference will provide a forum to review, discuss, and debate the state-of-the-art of space weather research, which has become the frontier of space physics. Scientific discussions at the conference will help to define and highlight the next five year crucial time period of space weather research in China. The conference will also provide an opportunity for Chinese domestic and overseas to exchange information and establish collaboration relationship in space weather research.
