TOPICAL DISCUSSION MEETINGS (TDM's)

Each year, during the European Space Weather Week (ESWW) meeting, people from all over the world gather to discuss the latest insights in space weather and to look for answers and ways forward to address the challenges and threats that space weather imposes.  Science, data exploitation, observations, service development, operational models, engineering, industrial challenges/sectors, amongst others, are all relevant and highly-important aspects related to space weather.

Topical Discussion Meetings (TDMs) are a principal component of ESWW where participants can directly contribute content.  One of the strengths of the ESWW meeting is that the participants can contribute largely to its content. TDMs are an important part of the programme and are organised primarily to allow plenty of room for discussion and debate.

TDMs are of such importance to the ESWW that despite the challenges of the ongoing COVID-19 emergency, the Local Organising Committee (LOC) and Programme Committee (PC) are committed to making the TDMs work fruitfully. We are investigating ways in which TDMs may be supported in a hybrid in-person and virtual meeting. We envisage both in-person and online delivery of presentations (orals/posters/quick views), and we are working on ways to enable as fully engaging TDM experience as possible for those not able to attend in person.

The TDM Proposers will be informed as soon as possible about the final form and the platform on which the virtual part of ESWW2021 and TDMs will be delivered.
