Invitation to IBEX Science Working Team (SWT) #22 and IMAP SWT #1 Meeting
From: Dave McComas (dmccomas at princeton.edu)
(Editor’s Note: The following updated announcement contains the link to the IMAP website that was accidentally dropped in yesterday’s SPA Newsletter.)
Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) science team meetings are open to the broad Heliophysics community, and with NASA’s selection of the Interstellar Mapping and Acceleration Probe (IMAP) – imap.princeton.edu/, we are extending this invitation to the IMAP science team meetings as well. Because of the overlap in some of the science and people involved, we have also decided to merge scheduling of these meetings.
The fundamental science questions of IBEX address the properties of the local interstellar medium, global heliospheric boundaries, and interstellar interactions. IMAP takes the next major leap in understanding our global heliosphere, heliospheric interactions and boundaries, local interstellar properties and composition, and the acceleration of suprathermal and energetic particle.
The next IBEX Science Working team meeting (SWT #22) and IMAP SWT #1 will be held August 28-29, 2018 at Princeton University. This meeting will start with a focus on IBEX science on the first day and then bring in the connection from IBEX to IMAP and other IMAP science topics on the second day. The SWT does not include IBEX operations or IMAP development, which are covered at separate meetings.
If you wish to attend this joint science meeting, please email Dave McComas’ Executive Assistant, Farra Rosko (frosko at princeton.edu) with your name and affiliation. If you would like to propose a science presentation related to IBEX and/or IMAP, please also copy Nathan Schwadron (nschwadron at unh.edu) and Maureen Rodgers (maureen.rodgers at unh.edu) and include a title for your scientific contribution and the science area (IBEX science, IMAP science or both). Notification of attendance and requests for science presentations are all due by August 6th.

NOTE: Due to the large number of SPA-related sessions at major conferences, the SPA Newsletter can no longer accept announcement requests for individual sessions at AGU, AOGS, COSPAR, EGU, or IAGA Meetings. Titles and web links (if available) of these sessions will be distributed in a special issue of the Newsletter before the abstract deadline.
