The Towards Future Research on Space Weather Drivers (FReSWeD 2019) workshop will be held between 2–7 July 2019 in San Juan, Argentina. More details can be found on the workshop's website, including details of how to join the pre-registration mailing list. Attendees are urged to book travel and lodging as soon as possible, since a large number of tourists are expected to come to observe the eclipse.
Hebe Cremades, Cristina Mandrini, and Carlos Francile (on behalf of the LOC/SOC) write:
This space weather workshop and its associated school are being organized on the occasion of the total solar eclipse of 2019, whose totality path will cross five provinces of Argentina extending for more than 1200 km.
Understanding and being able to forecast space weather is an increasingly important aspect of our modern technology-reliant society. This Workshop will promote the exchange of information in the area of space weather, from the point of view of the phenomena that drive it from its origin in the solar atmosphere, through its evolution in the interplanetary medium, to its arrival in geospace. Advanced understanding on space weather drivers is essential to improve predictability of the solar-terrestrial coupling.
Among the specific subjects that will be covered are:
The Workshop will include invited and contributed talks, posters, as well as joint discussions. The Workshop will be accompanied by a school with a mix of introductory tutorials, demos and hands-on labs. These activities are geared towards students and young researchers who seek to gain a broad overview of space weather domains, concepts and tools/resources.
