The meeting will centre on 8 open sessions which address a number of topical themes:

Each session will be divided into one oral and one poster session with plenty of time devoted to discussion. Contributed papers are welcome to each of the 8 sessions. The oral presentations will cover a range of scientific and applications related themes and will consist of both invited and contributed papers. Six of the eight sessions will address both scientific and applications based issues relating to a range of topical themes. Session 6 will address key scientific issues and Session 8 will be geared towards identifying the next steps towards a coordinated long-term European Space Weather activity. It is also envisaged that this final session will conclude with a wrap-up of the key issues arising during the week long event in the form of a round table discussion on possible future European directions in space weather.
