Frequently Asked Questions


Abstract Submission

  • I submitted a white paper to the Heliophysics 2050 Workshop call last summer. Do I still need to submit an abstract to get a poster slot?
  • Yes, you will need to submit a title and abstract to indicate your desire to present a poster. You can submit your abstract here: https://www.hou.usra.edu/meetings/helio2050/abstracts/. Not all white paper submitters want to present a poster, and there are colleagues who missed the previous white paper submission deadline who would like to submit an abstract now. Therefore, a call for abstracts was sent out recently.
  • Is there a limit to how many abstracts can be submitted by the same person?
  • There is no limit.
  • Do I need to submit an abstract to participate in the workshop and discussion?
  • Anyone who registers can participate in the workshop and discussion. Abstract submission is not required to participate.
  • What is the difference between a poster and a white paper submission?
  • A poster provides a white paper submitter with a platform to communicate with people who are interested in the content of the white paper. All submitted white papers have been published online: https://www.hou.usra.edu/meetings/helio2050/pdf/helio2050whitepapers_program.htm
  • How do white papers/abstracts for the Heliophysics 2050 Workshop differ and/or relate to those for the Decadal Survey?
  • The white papers/abstracts for the Heliophysics 2050 Workshop are different from these for the Decadal Survey and can be used as a starting point for the Decadal Survey white papers. A website has been created to allow members of the heliophysics science community to inform one another of intent to submit a white paper as part of the solar and space physics decadal survey.

  • Should I submit an abstract on my latest research result?
  • Abstracts are solicited for broad topics that can shape the discussion for further submission of white papers to the solar and space physics decadal survey.
  • Will everyone submitting an abstract get an opportunity to present a poster?
  • Yes.
  • What should I do if my abstract is cross-disciplinary and fits into two different poster sessions?
  • Please indicate the primary area for logistical purposes. All posters will be viewable through the workshop virtual environment.

Virtual Environment

  • What platform(s) will be available for meeting discussions and the poster sessions?
  • More information about the virtual environment and its features will be provided later.


General

  • What is the expected outcome of the Heliophysics 2050 Workshop?
  • In particular, this workshop will focus on discussing a strategic, multi-decadal science framework for solar and space physics to enable community members to incorporate into framing white papers to the Decadal Survey process. A website has been created to allow members of the heliophysics science community to inform one another of intent to submit a white paper as part of the solar and space physics decadal survey. The purpose and scope of the workshop are provided here: https://www.hou.usra.edu/meetings/helio2050/.
  • I am a scene-setting speaker. What deadlines to I need to meet?
  • More information about preparing and submitting presentation recordings and a brief overview presentation will be available soon.
Note: All electronic submission forms are part of the Meeting Portal, which requires users to set up a personal profile to access our electronic forms (setting up a profile is quick and easy, requiring only a few minutes of your time).
