Following the huge success of Interact 2017, this landmark symposium will be returning as Interact 2019 on Wednesday 4th September 2019 at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) in Preston, Lancashire. Click here for registration details and to find out more.
Spanning the physical and life sciences this event offers something for everyone with an interest in improving their public engagement capabilities. It will provide a fantastic opportunity to learn new ways to engage with your audience, explore the barriers to engagement and discuss how the engagement landscape is changing. But above all, it will be a chance to share your experiences with like-minded people in a fun and friendly environment.
The STFC, IOP, SEPnet, RSC, RAS Ogden Trust and UCLan are partnering together to develop an inspiring, challenging and refreshing programme on the following key themes:
The detailed content of the day will be co-created and you will be able to vote on proposals by fellow delegates, so get your thinking caps on!
The Partially Ionised Plasmas in Astrophysics (PIPA2019) conference is to be held in Mallorca in June 3-7, 2019. The meeting will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas between participants from all areas of astrophysics in which partially ionised plasmas play a capital role, from the Earth's ionosphere to partially ionised regions in galaxies, which also includes solar chromosphere, interstellar medium, stellar formation, protostellar discs, planetary magnetospheres and ionospheres, etc. For information about the conference, including the venue, accommodation, preliminary invited speakers and talks, click here. The deadline for registration, abstract submission and hotel reservations is 1 April 2019.
A Royal Astronomical Society discussion meeting entitled Transitioning Research and Instrument Expertise in Heliophysics into Space Weather Monitoring Capabilities at L1 and L5 is to be held at Burlington House on 8 March, convened by Richard Harrison (STFC), Jackie Davies (STFC), and Jonny Rae (MSSL). This meeting specifically targets the exploitation of our research and instrumentation for space weather applications, in particular, associated with the ESA Lagrange mission and the associated NASA L1 mission. The RAS page for the meeting is here, and the programme is available here.
The online abstract submission system for the 2019 Royal Astronomical Society National Astronomy Meeting is now open. The deadline for abstract submissions is 15 March and abstracts can be submitted through the NAM 2019 website.
NAM 2019 will be held at Lancaster University between 30 June–4 July. Further information and a full list of parallel sessions is available on the event website. Additional practical information will be added to the site prior to registration opening on Mon 25 February, and it is not necessary to register to submit an abstract.
Further to the initial announcement, more details are now available on the 2019 International EISCAT Symposium. It will be held alongside the 46th Annual European Meeting on Atmospheric Studies (46AM) at the University of Oulu, Finland, from 19–23 August 2019.
The joint meeting will be immediately preceded by the International EISCAT Incoherent Scatter Radar School, at Pikku Syote (150 km east of Oulu), from 12–17 August 2019.
Registration information for both meetings will be published in February, but in the meantime, please visit the EISCAT Symposium and 46AM webpage and the EISCAT Radar School webpage for more information.
