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.

Contributed talks are scheduled as 12 minutes long, which should include 2 minutes for questions. Lightning talks must be a maximum of one slide and a duration of 2 minutes. The projector is suitable for slides with a 16:9 aspect ratio. 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.
The community has voted to reschedule Autumn MIST for 24 January 2020.
Previously, MIST Council announced the cancellation or postponement of Autumn MIST if proposed UCU strike action had not been cancelled by 22 November. The strike action is still scheduled to take place, and as such, Autumn MIST will indeed be cancelled or rescheduled.
We appreciate that this news will inconvenience some Autumn MIST attendees, but after much discussion, MIST Council feels that this is the best way to proceed to ensure a vibrant and constructive meeting.
