With the ongoing uncertainties around the current COVID-19 pandemic, and now with concerns regarding second and third peaks in some countries, the PC in conjunction with the LOC Core Team have taken the decision to postpone the 17th European Space Weather Week (ESWW17/ESWW2020) to 01-05 November 2021. Therefore, the 17th European Space Weather Week will now be known as ESWW2021. We will now look forward to welcoming you all to Glasgow in November 2021.
With regards to the current preparations – PC Working Group leads will be in touch separately regarding work undertaken to-date in preparation for the 17th ESWW.
In addition, we are looking at some possibilities of having a European Space Weather online meeting in November 2020 – and this will be completely separate from the ESWW series. We will make any announcements about this in due course. The ESWW medals will also still be going ahead for 2020 – so again – please watch for announcements regarding those too.
Finally, we want to thank everyone who took the time to complete our questionnaire last week – this was very helpful in assisting us in making the decision to postpone by one year – and to wish you all well and hope that you remain safe for however much longer this pandemic lasts.
All the best, and see you in Glasgow 01-05 November 2021.
(on behalf of the PC and LOC for ESWW17/ESWW2021)
