The content focuses on Space Weather and Space Weather advisories in the domains GNSS, HF com and radiation at FL including the effects on human-made infrastructure and its functionality used in aviation. 

We discuss solar eruptions of very high-energy matter and electromagnetic radiation which inject massive amounts of energy in the Earth's magnetosphere and ionosphere leading to pronounced impact on navigation, communication and leading to an increase of harmful particle radiation. 

Participants are expected to have a basic understanding of waves, particles, vectors, magnetic field, electric currents, etc.  

Application for this event is currently open.
