The ESWW parallel sessions form the main component of the conference at which new space weather research, tools and services are presented. The parallel sessions are divided into 2 types: Space Weather Research (SWR) and 100% Community-Driven (100CD). Both types of parallel sessions are convened by members of the space weather community who have applied to do this (in the case of ESWW2021 the announcement for this was made already in 2020). The key difference is that the SWR sessions have fixed overall recurrent themes whereas the 100CD sessions are topical for the specific year including the titles and abstract. The SWR sessions also have a flavour for that year and are broad enough that relevant research will always find a place where it can be submitted to ESWW.
For work to be considered for presentation in one of the parallel sessions authors must submit a short abstract (2-3 paragraphs) with a title and list of authors, select the parallel session in which they wish to present and select whether they would like an oral or poster. The session abstracts should be read carefully as submission to the wrong session will negatively impact the chances of selection (even though the PC will do their best to move mis-assigned abstracts). Oral presentations will be nominally 15 minutes in duration including questions (at the discretion of session convenors). Posters/Quick Views will be assigned a board (for the in-person component) on which the poster can be found any time during ESWW. For those joining online, Quick Views will be implemented.
More details on the two types of parallel sessions and the links to their descriptions are given below, and at the bottom of the page is the link to start your abstract submission.
SWR - Space Weather Research parallel sessions
ESWW2021 will have 6 parallel SWR sessions:
Nominally, each SWR session will be given 2 slots in the programme of 1-1.25 hours each based on the number of good quality submissions received. Additionally, if a SWR receives a very large number of quality good submissions a 3rd slot may be made available. Conversely, if very few good submissions are received for any SWR session it may be reduced to a single session.
100CD - 100% Community-Driven parallel sessions
ESWW2021 will have 6 parallel 100CD sessions:
Nominally, each 100CD session will be given 1 slot in the programme of 1-1.25 hours each based on the number of good quality submissions received. Additionally, if a 100CD receives a very large number of good submissions a 2nd slot may be made available. Conversely, if very few quality submissions are received for a 100CD session it may lose its slot and any submission will be redistributed to other appropriate parallel sessions.
Please submit your abstract online before 9 July 2021.
