Meeting Planning Services

In order to mitigate some of the impact of COVID-19 on the community, the deadline for the submission of white papers to be used for planning the Heliophysics 2050 Workshop has been extended to September 25, 2020.

Call for White Papers

The workshop discussions will be based on the science needs identified in community white papers. Submissions are encouraged to advance and expand the field of solar and space physics.

White papers should succinctly describe a progression of linked scientific investigations starting from the current state and leading toward the desired state in 2050. The ideal white paper would contain the key points and links between and progression of related science investigations that would serve as a basis for a longer conversation and would not describe a spaceflight mission or other implementation. There is no limit to the number of white papers an individual may submit. White papers are limited to 3 pages (including figures and references).

Community members are encouraged to proactively involve colleagues who may be experiencing significant time constraints due to the COVID-19 situation that would allow participation in but prevent the leading of white papers.

Create a profile and submit white papers via the USRA meeting portal: https://bit.ly/Helio2050.

White papers are due September 25, 2020, 5:00 p.m. U.S. Central Daylight Time (GMT -5).

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).
