Global Data Activities for the Study of Solar-Terrestrial Variability

This joint workshop of ICSU's Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics (SCOSTEP) and the World Data System (WDS) on ‘data’ will be held on 28–30 September 2015 in Tokyo, Japan.

The principal objective of the workshop is to stimulate interaction among data providers (WDS members, data centres, data networks, etc.), data scientists, and data-oriented researchers of the SCOSTEP community. The new VarSITI* program of SCOSTEP will strive for international collaboration in data analysis, modelling, and theory to understand how the solar variability affects the Earth's environment. Long-term preservation and provision of quality-assessed data and information will be common objectives for SCOSTEP and WDS. Development of advanced data systems to enable scientists to perform multidisciplinary data-analysis will be another common target. This workshop will be a remarkable opportunity to initiate close collaboration between SCOSTEP and WDS to promote our data-oriented activities by introducing outcomes from the information technology. Data analysis of VarSITI Campaign Intervals will be another important component of the workshop not only to develop the study of solar-terrestrial variability but also to establish a mutual feedback loop between “data users” and data providers. Principal topics of the workshop are:

  1. Application of information technologies to mutual data activities
  2. Data systems for VarSITI (data centres, data networks, data analysis systems, etc.)
  3. Data analysis (VarSITI Campaign Intervals and others)
  4. Data-oriented collaborations between SCOSTEP and WDS.

Further information on the workshop (e.g. registration, travel support, accommodation, etc.) will be posted on the website
