ISEA 12 : Third Announcement and Call for Papers. November 15, 2007.

The organizing Committee (OC) is pleased to make the 3nd announcement regarding the 12th International Symposium on Equatorial Aeronomy, to be held in Crete, Greece, May 18-24, 2008. At this time, we are pleased to invite all colleagues who are interested in attending ISEA 12 to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations of their work. The ISEA 12 home page (http://isea12.physics.uoc.gr) has instructions on how to submit an abstract. The web site also contains information on hotel reservations, financial assistance and travel.

DEADLINES: The deadline for reduced price hotel reservations and early registration is January 31, 2008. The deadline for applying for financial assistance is January 15, 2008.
The deadline for abstract submission is February 15, 2008; please see instructions at http://isea12.physics.uoc.gr/index.php?show=abstract for more information.

MEETING INFORMATION: ISEA is held approximately every four years and is a major event in the field of Aeronomy. It serves as a forum for scientists to report and discuss recent research results and progress relating to the physics of the mesosphere, thermosphere and ionosphere at equatorial, low- and mid-latitudes.

The ISEA 12 program includes 11 oral and 4 poster sessions distributed over five and a half conference days, with one day in the middle of the week reserved for a full-day excursion. The first day sessions are dedicated to the memory of Tor Hagfors and will include tutorials to be delivered by leading members of our community. The last session of the meeting is devoted to discussing the future directions of the field and will include invited talks with time allotted for audience participation. The remaining sessions cover a broad range of atmospheric and ionospheric topics and are now open for abstract submissions. More information on session topics and a list of invited speakers attending the conference can be found at the ISEA 12 home page, mentioned above.

We expect 120 to 150 participants at ISEA 12. If you plan to attend the meeting, please bookmark the ISEA 12 page http://isea12.physics.uoc.gr and take action now.

Best regards and thanks for your attention.

ISEA 12 : Second Announcement and Call for Papers. June 15, 2007.

The ISEA 12 organizing Committee (OC) is pleased to make the 2nd announcement regarding the 12th International Symposium on Equatorial Aeronomy, to be held in Crete, Greece, in less than a year from now (May 18-24, 2008).

This meeting is held every 4 years and is a major event in the field of upper atmospheric and ionospheric science and serves as a forum for scientists to report and discuss research results and progress relating to the physics of the mesosphere, thermosphere and ionosphere at equatorial, low- and mid-latitudes.

We have now defined the scientific sessions and their topics and selected their conveners and co-conveners who have provided detailed session descriptions. At present, the conveners are in the process of selecting invited speakers for their sessions. The program will include 11 oral and 4 poster sessions distributed over five and a half conference days, with one day in the middle of the week reserved for an excursion in eastern Crete. The first day sessions are devoted to six 45-min long tutorials, while the last session will be devoted to discussing the future directions of the field.

With this message, we wish to introduce the ISEA 12 home page http://isea12.physics.uoc.gr where you can find detailed information about the meeting. We have posted important information on the ISEA 12 venue, including hotel costs, reservation details and deadlines. The ISEA 12 home page also contains travel information that can be used for planning your trip to Crete. If you are to attend the meeting and wish to travel economically, then it is advisable to fix your travel plans as soon as possible. The Organizing Committee is presently in the process for securing sponsoring funds, which we hope to obtain and make them available to those colleagues and students who need partial financial assistance to attend ISEA 12.

At this time, we would like to make our first call for contributed papers. You can find abstract submission instructions at http://isea12.physics.uoc.gr/index.php?show=abstract. Although the final submission deadline is still months away, we urge you to submit your abstract(s) as soon as possible. The abstract submission deadline is set for February 15, 2008.

We expect to have 150 participants at ISEA 12 and hope you will be one of them. If you plan to attend the meeting, please bookmark the ISEA 12 web page (http://isea12.physics.uoc.gr). For planning purposes, we would appreciate a brief email (sent to isea12@physics.uoc.gr) informing us if you plan to attend, as this would be of great help in optimizing our organizing efforts. If you wish to have your name taken off our emailing list, please reply this message and ask us to remove you.

The 3rd announcement will appear later this fall when we hope to have most of the planning for ISEA 12 finalized.

Best regards and thanks for your attention.

ISEA 12 1st Announcement. October 15, 2006.

12th International Symposium on Equatorial Aeronomy (ISEA)

We are pleased to announce that ISEA-12 will take place on the island of Crete, Greece, the 3rd week of May, 2008. We remind you that ISEA is a single session, workshop-like meeting taking place every four years and usually has an attendance of about 100 to 150 scientists from all over the world. It deals with reporting and discussing research results and progress relating to the physics of the Mesosphere, Thermosphere and Ionosphere at equatorial, low- and mid-latitudes.

As in previous ISEAs, it is planned to have scientific sessions dedicated to the following topics:


1) Lower and middle atmosphere dynamics
2) MLT region and thermospheric dynamics
3) Ionospheric electrodynamics
4) Atmosphere/ionosphere coupling
5) E and F region plasma irregularities and instabilities
6) E- and F-region space weather effects and diagnostics
7) New techniques, trends and experiments
8) Important scientific issues and future directions
In addition, there will be an introductory session with tutorial talks.

We are presently in the planning phase and it would be of help to the organizers if the interested recipients of this message respond (by emailing to the address isea12@physics.uoc.gr) to let us know if they plan to participate and wish their names to be in our mailing list. We are in the process of locating a proper venue along the north coastline of Crete, and thus any information on the anticipated attendance will be useful.
