PRESTO (PREdictability of the variable Solar-Terrestrial cOupling) is an international science program that seeks to improve the predictability of energy flow in the integrated Sun-Earth system on various times scales from milliseconds to centuries by promoting international collaborative efforts.
PRESTO is the primary science program of SCOSTEP, the Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics. This workshop will aim to gather eminent scientists from solar, magnetospheric, ionospheric and atmospheric physics communities to discuss and deliberate on the cutting-edge sciences related to the PRESTO program.
The workshop will follow a one-day school which will provide students and early-career scientists with an introductory review on the topics that will be discussed during the PRESTO workshop. The space science schools are a capacity building activity of the International Space Weather Initiative (ISWI) and SCOSTEP.
Observations and modelling of solar eruptions, solar wind and SEPs from Sun through interplanetary space
