SCOSTEP 2023 program


The Swiss National SCOSTEP committee is pleased to announce the 5th Swiss SCOSTEP workshop to be held from May 15-16, 2023 at FHNW in Windisch, Switzerland.

This workshop aims at bringing together scientists with an interest in solar-terrestrial science. It encourages a lively exchange between scientists from all fields within solar-terrestrial physics to identify synergies, foster collaborations, and strengthen the Swiss solar-terrestrial community.


The workshop will consist of three invited talks plus contributed presentations (oral or poster). It covers the following topics:
1. Fundamental solar physics
2. Solar variability in the past and future
3. Sun-Earth relations in proxies, observations, and model simulations
4. Future (space) missions/observations

In-person participation is highly encouraged and recommended. A remote option will only be available on a best-effort basis.

Invited speakers:


Contributed talks are scheduled for 15 min + 5 min questions, invited talks for 25 min + 5 min questions.
