MEETING: 20th Annual International Astrophysics Conference (AIAC) -- Correct Dates

From: Gary P Zank (garyp.zank at gmail.com

CONFERENCE: 20th Annual International Astrophysics Conference, October 31-November 4, 2022, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA

Anticipating that the COVID pandemic will be behind us by October 2022 (or at least endemic), we are pleased to announce that the 20th Annual International Astrophysics Conference will once again resume and  be held at the La Posada Resort & Spa hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico, from October 31 to November 4.  (Welcome Reception and Evening Registration begins Sunday, October 30).

The 20th AIAC is intended to be twofold - retrospective, celebrating the solar, space, and astrophysical accomplishments of the past 20 years as expressed in the 19 prior AIAC conferences, and a future perspective, i.e., examining some of the pressing questions that taxed our community over the past 20 years from the perspective of what we think we know and understand. Accordingly, the theme of the meeting will be From the Depths of the Solar Corona to the Darkness of Interstellar Space: A 20 Year Perspective. We will follow the usual format of 25-minute presentations punctuated by selected 40-minute invited talks that will develop both the retrospective and future themes in greater detail. Since the 19 previous meetings addressed the broad themes of the interaction of the outer heliosphere and the local interstellar medium, shock waves and nonlinear processes, energetic particles, particle acceleration and transport, the heating and physics of the solar corona and solar wind, turbulence processes, and much more, these will all be themes in the 20th iteration of the AIAC. A characteristic theme of previous meetings was the universality of many of the physical processes that informed the conference, and this will be a central element of the 20th celebration.

In the spirit of keeping all attendees as safe as possible, we will be limiting the number of attendees and implementing safety protocols.  In that vein, all meeting participants will be required to adhere to the following mandates:

Provide proof of being FULLY vaccinated against COVID-19 as required by the CDC.

N95 or KN95 masks only must be worn at all times during all conference functions.

Provide proof of a negative COVID test taken within 24 hours of the meeting.

Practice social distancing throughout the meeting.

Depending on ever-changing circumstances, these requirements are subject to change.  Additional detail on COVID-19 safety requirements will be posted on the website.

MEETING: PRE 9, Dublin, 26-28 Sept. 2022 -- Call for Abstracts

From: Caitriona Jackman, Georg Fischer (georg.fischer at oeaw.ac.at)

The 9th International Workshop on Planetary, Solar and Heliospheric Radio Emissions (PRE 9) deals with the most recent developments in the study of non-thermal radio emissions from the Sun, the radio planets, the heliosphere, and from extrasolar sources like exoplanets or brown dwarfs. Special emphasis is put on current and future spacecraft missions (Juno, Solar Orbiter, JUICE), but also new developments in ground-based radio telescopic observations (e.g. with LOFAR) will be matters of discussion.

PRE 9 is the continuation of a series of workshops that took place in and near Graz/Austria in 1984, 1987, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2005, 2010, and 2016. However, PRE 9 has now moved to Dublin/Ireland!

For more information please visit our website at https://pre2022.dias.ie/. The abstract deadline is on 3 June 2022, and the workshop will take place 26-28 September in Dublin. It will be primarily an in-person meeting with some hybrid options. The organizing committee is looking forward to your abstract submission.

Call for Papers for "Fifteen Years of THEMIS Mission”

Open for Submissions: 1 April 2022

Submission Deadline: 31 January 2023

Special Collection Organizers:

Vassilis Angelopoulos, University of California, Los Angeles

David Sibeck, Goddard Space Flight Center

Steve Milan, University of Leicester

The THEMIS mission, launched in 2007 and then bifurcated into THEMIS (in Earth orbit) and ARTEMIS (in lunar orbit), comprises five identical spacecraft (probes) and a network of ground-based magnetometers and all-sky-cameras. Although THEMIS was originally focused on the location and nature of substorm onset in the Earth’s magnetotail, it now explores a much broader range of space plasma topics: from the radiation belts and magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling to solar wind-magnetosphere interactions and the lunar plasma environment. THEMIS and ARTEMIS help quantify the solar wind-magnetosphere energy cycle, including energy entry into the magnetosphere, storage within the magnetotail, release via charged particle acceleration, and injection into the inner magnetosphere. The two ARTEMIS probes contribute to our understanding of the lunar environment, revealing the physics of plasma interactions with the Moon's surface, crustal magnetic fields, exosphere, and wake. THEMIS and ARTEMIS also provide context to and connections between other magnetospheric missions, enabling a global framework of assets, the Heliophysics System Observatory. This special JGR collection covers the wide range of topics where THEMIS and ARTEMIS spacecraft and associated ground-based networks provide measurements crucial for our understanding of space weather phenomena and fundamental plasma physics. Studies including THEMIS/ARTEMIS conjugate measurements with low-altitude satellites, ground-based observatories, and other magnetospheric missions, as well as simulations driven by such measurements are also encouraged.

13-1th SCOSTEP/PRESTO Online Seminar

Title: Mesoscales and their Contribution to the Global Response: A Focus on the Magnetotail Transition Region and Magnetosphere-Ionosphere Coupling

Author: Dr. Christine Gabrielse

Affiliation: The Aerospace Corporation, USA

Date/time: May 18 (Wed), 2022, 22:00-23:00 UT

Zoom Registration URL (pre-registration is necessary):



How do mesoscale phenomena contribute to the global response of the system? This question has risen to the forefront of the space physics community in recent years, and has been the topic of a Geospace Environment Modeling (GEM) Focus Group since 2017. Specifically, community members have been studying if and how much mesoscale transport in the tail contributes to the more global response at the dipole-stretched transition region with respect to magnetic flux and dipolarization, particle transport and injections, and the substorm current wedge. How this relates to the coupled ionosphere is also an important consideration. This talk will summarize some results that were compiled to answer this question, and poses more questions to the audience to consider with regards to further understanding how mesoscale phenomena contribute to the system global response.

JOB OPENING: Two Civil Service Research Scientists at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Ionosphere/Thermosphere/Mesosphere Physics Lab (application period begins May 20, 2022)

From: From: Doug Rowland (douglas.e.rowland@nasa.gov), Alexa Halford (douglas.e.rowland at nasa.gov)

The Ionosphere, Thermosphere, Mesosphere Physics Laboratory (“ITM Lab”) at NASA Goddard seeks to hire two full-time researchers studying aspects of ITM dynamics, coupling, and chemistry:

1)      A senior (GS-15 – roughly equivalent to full professor) researcher with experience in developing whole atmosphere models and using them to address critical problems in ITM science. This is a “permanent” position, meaning it comes with civil service tenure after a one-year probation period. The application period for this position will be open May 20, 2022 through May 24, 2022. Applications are through USAJobs, and the vacancy announcement is located here:


2)      An early-career (GS-13 – roughly equivalent to assistant professor) researcher with experience in using satellite and ground-based observations to address critical problems in ITM science. This is a six-year “term” position that has the potential to be converted to a tenured position. The application period for this position will be open from May 20, 2022 through May 26, 2022. Applications are through USAJobs, and the vacancy announcement is located here:


The ITM Lab, formed in 2018, consists of ~45 government and university researchers, and addresses a wide range of problems in the middle and upper atmospheres and ionospheres of Earth and other planets. Our lab cultivates strong collaborations with the Solar, Heliospheric, Geospace, and Space Weather Labs at NASA Goddard, providing great potential for interdisciplinary collaborations in Heliophysics. The ITM Lab also enjoys strong collaborations with NASA Goddard’s Earth Science, Planetary Science, and Astrophysics Divisions.

Because of the short application periods for these positions, we encourage interested applicants to prepare their USAJobs CV and other application materials well in advance to smooth the application process. The vacancy announcements listed above can be viewed now, but applications cannot be entered for those jobs until May 20, when the application periods open.

These are US Government Civil Service positions and applicants are expected to have experience in related areas of research. While most researchers live and work on-site at the Greenbelt, MD campus, there is flexibility for telework and remote work on a case-by-case basis. We encourage all interested to apply.

If you have questions about these positions, please contact:

Doug Rowland, ITM Lab Chief (douglas.e.rowland@nasa.gov)

Alexa Halford, ITM Lab Associate Chief (alexa.j.halford@nasa.gov)
