Associated Events 2022

A number of organizations will take advantage of the presence of their members at the COSPAR Assembly to organize scientific, business, or social events. The COSPAR Secretariat encourages all groups organizing Associated Events to make them known so that they can be listed in Assembly materials (web, Call for Papers, Program, app, etc.) as appropriate.

Below please find a list of Associated Events brought to the attention of the Secretariat to date:

- International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) Day, 09:30 - 18:00, Saturday, 16 July 2022, Academy of Athens,’Main Hall’ [Kentriki Aithousa], 28 Eleftheriou Venizelou Avenue, Athens 10679.

The International Academy of Astronautics will host its regular Academy Day at the COSPAR Scientific Assembly on Saturday, 16 July 2022, 9:30–18:00. Updates on current Academy activities will be provided by IAA leaders. The highlight of Academy Day however will be a technical program comprised of four or five invited lectures on the latest results from Earth and space science research. Featured lectures will be presented by renowned scientists in the respective fields of space science including astronomy, Earth science, heliophysics and planetary science. Lectures will be tailored for a scientifically savvy audience most of whom are not experts in the particular field of the specific lectures.

COSPAR Publishing Connect Authors Workshop: How to Get Published, 19:30 - 21:00, Tuesday, 19 July 2022, Room MAICC MC 2. Open to all participants.

COSPAR is delighted to announce the Publishing Connect Workshop: How to Get Published at the Scientific Assembly in Athens. During this workshop, an Elsevier Publisher will provide a presentation on how to write a good scientific paper. The presentation contains tips about how to prepare your manuscript using proper manuscript language and how to structure your article. The workshop will be co-presented by an Editor of the society journal Advances in Space Research. With this workshop we aim to help you increase the chances of getting your paper published.

The workshop is tentatively scheduled to take place on Tuesday, 19 July 2022, from 19.30 to 21.00. It will consist of a 40-minute presentation by an Elsevier Publisher followed by a 30-minute presentation by an Editor of Advances in Space Research, leaving 20 minutes for questions and open floor discussions.

The workshop is open to all participants, but is mostly aimed at early career scientists (PhD-students and postdocs). Pre-registration is recommended. The number of attendees is limited by the allocated room capacity. To register, please complete the form which will become available in the coming months through: www.cospar-assembly.org/

Ganymede Workshop, 13:00 - 19:00, Wednesday, 20 July 2022, Room MAICC D. MITROPOULOS

The workshop focus is Ganymede’s interior, surface, ionosphere and magnetosphere, and the new insights from Juno’s Ganymede flyby.  The format is be designed to facilitate cross disciplinary dialogue of data analysis, interpretation, modeling and theory.  The workshop is scheduled to be held at on Wednesday, July 20, 2022 starting at 1:00 pm in the Mitropoulos auditorium of Megaron Athens International Conference Centre in conjunction with COSPAR.  On June 7, 2021 the Juno spacecraft passed Ganymede at a closest approach altitude of ~1000 km. The payload brings both modern and uniquely new instrumentation to one of the solar system’s most fascinating targets, a satellite ocean world with its own magnetosphere.  Juno’s new results include geology, microwave probing of the ice shell, interior radio science, and the investigation of Ganymede’s magnetosphere and aurora.  This snapshot in time builds anticipation for the comprehensive JUICE mission and Clipper’s flybys.   The format of the workshop will be short introductory talks by members of the Juno team highlighting the new data, and JUICE team members discussing JUICE objectives.  Outstanding questions will be identified.  Ample time will be left for discussion by the group on each topic.  Participants are not merely presenters or spectators but are expected to contribute to that discussion through questions and suggested directions for future progress.  Early career scientists interested in working with Juno data are especially encouraged to attend.
