The IHY-Africa Space Weather Science and Education Workshop will be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia during Nov 12-16, 2007. The meeting will follow the 2nd Africa SCINDA Workshop on Sunday 11th November. Both meetings will be held at the Ghion Hotel. The Workshop is under the auspices of IHY, in cooperation and collaboration with several other international and African national programs, including CAWSES, eGY, AMMA, and AFREF. The workshop is sponsored by several US and International Agencies.
Workshop Objectives: The purpose of the workshop is to facilitate scientific interaction and promote space science in Africa, with a strong educational focus. The space science community is currently exploring ways to increase the observational infrastructure in the African sector, and to encourage scientists in Sub-Saharan Africa to become involved in the science objectives, and to host instrumentation at their institutions. The new observational infrastructure will facilitate the study of space weather, spark interest in space science education and research, and encourage the next generation to become interested in the space sciences.
The workshop will provide an ideal opportunity to develop strong interactions with scientists in Africa. A strong educational focus is planned with a break-out group
