The location will be the Sani Pass hotel in the beautiful Drakensberg mountains. A single shuttle bus will be provided on 31 May and 5 June to/from this remote location. The venue is at high altitude in the winter, so expect freezing but dry conditions at night, yet warm and sunny conditions in the daytime. Those venturing to the top of Sani pass into the Kingdom of Lesotho can expect freezing conditions all day with possible snow (with no skiing), but the highest pub in Africa has a solution for this.
As a result of COVID-19, the below meeting has been cancelled, and will appear in the 2020/21 round.
A RAS G discussion meeting on “System-scale observations and modelling of solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere coupling” will be held at the Royal Astronomical Society on 17 April 2020 from 10:00–15:30. The registration fee is free for RAS members, £5 for students, or £15 for non-student non-members.
The invited speaker will be Colin Waters (University of Newcastle, Australia).
If you would like to submit an abstract, please complete the abstract submission form by 20 March 2020.
A summer school plus conference on “Nonstationary Signal Analysis in Geophysics and other fields” will take place at Gran Sasso Science Institute, in L’Aquila, Italy, on 13–18 July 2020.
During the Summer School young researchers and PhD students will have a chance to learn about new data analysis tools/techniques for non-stationary time series and their theoretical foundation.
The summer school will take place during the first four days and it will consist of three eight-hour courses. Lecturers at the school are Patrick Flandrin (ENS Lyon), Yang Wang (HKSTU), and Hau-tieng Wu (Duke University).
At the end of the school there will be a three-day conference during which the speakers will show both the applications of these techniques to real-life data and present the current frontiers of theoretical research.
Applications for prospective students of the Summer School, as well as speakers of the conference are now open; for more information and to apply please visit the event webpage.
We look forward to welcoming you all to the MIST meeting taking place on Friday 24 January 2020 and would like to remind you all of a few details for the day.

The poster boards are suitable for A0 portrait posters - please do not bring posters wider than A0 portrait as you will be unable to fully display your poster.
Code of Conduct
The Ireland and UK Hub of the Europlanet Society are conducting their first regional meeting on Friday 27 March 2020 at the Royal Astronomical Society in London. Regional Hubs are a means of promoting and disseminating planetary science research, and related activities, as part of the Europlanet Society's aims.
Reseachers from the Ireland and UK planetary science community are invited to take part in this meeting. The event will encompass the full range of planetary science research within the Ireland-UK communities, as well as showcasing the development of planetary science infrastructures and facilities. The programme will consist of oral and poster presentations.
Presentations are particularly encouraged from early career researchers, and scientists who have disseminated their work via Europlanet networking workshops or research infrastructure. We have five featured invited speakers who will describe their own research or the activities of the Europlanet Society.
This web page also includes details about a survey on Hub activities. All planetary scientists, regardless of whether they attend the meeting or not, are encouraged to respond to this survey by using the link on the Hub page. This will help focus the Hub's efforts over the next few years, and help make the Europlanet Society a valuable forum for its members.
