Topical Discussion Meetings (the PC are evaluating the situation at present).

Participants at European Space Weather Week (ESWW) conference actively contribute to the content. Topical Discussion Meetings are an important part of the programme and are organised by a round table format with plenty of room for interaction. Discussions on the newest insights in space weather, on the challenges and threats that space weather imposes, discussions on science, data exploitation, observations, service development, operational models, engineering, industrial challenges, ... all are relevant and eligible for a Topical Discussion Meeting. 


A Topical Discussion Meeting aims at active participation or interaction between the participants. The participants work and discuss on a predefined theme or problem heading towards an outcome or target. 

TDM leaders are encouraged to allow participation across in-room and electronic interaction for those who want to ask a question anonymously or prefer not to have to put their hand up during the event.
