Paper Conservation

In alignment with the priority objectives of AGU's strategic plan, AGU will not provide printed programs for the Chapman conferences. Instead, you may access real-time, detailed presentation information via the on-line itinerary planner (IP). Additionally, on-line evaluation surveys will be sent via email before the final day of the conference.

The meeting will span 4.5 days, with the conference excursion on Wednesday afternoon. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday will consist of a morning and afternoon session. On Wednesday and Friday there will be sessions only in the morning and the conference will end at 1:00 p.m. on Friday. There will be both invited and contributed talks on each day, and on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday afternoons there will be a designated one-hour Discussion Time for debate and discussion on topics of interest led by two members of the Program Committee.

The main focus areas of the conference comprise the following:

  1. Current state of knowledge of Earth's radiation belts
  2. Upcoming inner magnetosphere space missions
  3. Modeling, simulation and theory of the radiation belts
  4. Energy coupling processes in the radiation belts and inner magnetosphere
  5. The radiation belts and space weather
  6. Earth's radiation belts in a planetary and cosmic context

Fields of Interest

Radiation belt physics, inner magnetosphere physics, space weather, space missions in the inner magnetosphere, energy coupling processes involving the radiation belts, ring current, plasmasphere and ionosphere, space plasma physics.
