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.
  • Observations and modelling of solar eruptions, solar wind and SEPs from Sun through interplanetary space 
  • Prediction of solar transients, streams/SIRs and SEP from Sun to geospace
  • Effect of space weather on the Earth’s ionosphere, thermosphere, and magnetosphere
  • Influence of the lower atmosphere on the mesosphere, thermo- sphere, and ionosphere
  • Solar forcing specification and impacts on the atmosphere and climate
  • Precipitating energetic particles and their effects on atmosphere
  • Predictability of the solar cycle
