CAWSES International Workshop on Space Weather Modeling (CSWM), Yokohama(Nov. 14-17, 2006)
Advancement in our understanding of the space environment is in great demand now as the dynamic activities of the Sun, solar wind, magnetosphere and ionosphere can influence modern technology systems and endanger human life and health. The numerical simulation and modeling driven by integrated observations are powerful methods for understanding the complex Sun-Earth system, and they are an important means for predicting space weather. To address this issue, a workshop on "CAWSES International Workshop on Space Weather Modeling (CSWM)" will be held at the Earth Simulator Center in Yokohama, Japan. This workshop will provide a forum for review of the recent progress and the scientific challenges in space weather modeling research.
