The dates and location for the 2019 International EISCAT symposium have been announced. It will be held in 19–23 August 2019 at the University of Oulu, Finland. A radar summer school will be held in the preceding week, and a full announcement and website will follow soon.

Given that EISCAT 3D is scheduled to come on-line in 2021 this is a great opportunity to develop new collaborations, get up to speed on the science EISCAT can facilitate (including E3D), and give students/postdocs a head start in working with the new system.
EISCAT has put together some cartoons showing how EISCAT 3D will operate under different scenarios including simultaneous multi-user experiments. Check out these illustrations of the beam switch timing and ability to switch between modes on the order of a second!
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.
