Financial Support Application deadline extended to March 28, 2008,
Registration deadline extended to April 11, 2008

We invite you to participate and present papers at the International Workshop on "Solar Variability, Earth's Climate and the Space Environment", which will be held between June 1 and June 6, 2008 at the Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana, USA. The workshop will cover the following research areas:

  1. The Sun as a Star
  2. The Earth's Atmosphere and Space Environment
  3. Solar Influence on the Earth's Atmosphere and Space Environment
  4. Achievements and Future Science Plans
In addition to the above scientific sessions, four interdisciplinary working groups, open to all participants, will focus on:
  1. Irradiance Variability, Modeling, and Internal Processes
  2. Space Weather Modeling
  3. Long-Term Solar Variability, Solar-Stellar Connection and Space Climate
  4. Solar Influence on Climate

This workshop is sponsored by the SCOSTEP/CAWSES Working Group (Climate And Weather of the Sun-Earth System), NASA's Living with a Star program, Montana State University, Goddard Earth Science and Technology Center, University of Maryland-Baltimore County (GEST/UMBC) and the International Heliospheric Year (IHY). Updated information (registration and financial assistance, abstract submission, accomodation, travel and recreational opportunities and preliminary scientific program) is posted at the meeting's website.

Note the extension in the deadlines for financial support application and registration in light of the procurement of new funding for this workshop. Considering that June is a busy tourist season in Bozeman, we urge you to register, submit your abstract and complete your hotel reservations soon.
