The International Space Weather Initiative (ISWI) is a programme of international cooperation to advance space weather science by a combination of instrument deployment, analysis of space weather data from these instruments in conjunction with other data, and the communication of such results.
The ISWI activities are coordinated by a Steering Committee, supported by its Secretariat. A ISWI newsletter is published by the International Center for Space Weather Science and Education (ICSWSE) of Kyushu University, Japan, and the ISWI website is maintained by the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (
The aims of the workshop are deployment of instruments in developing nations and analysis of space weather data. A particular focus will be on new research results and findings and to encourage greater cooperation in developing partnerships and ISWI networks. International experts will lecture at the workshop.

The International Committee on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (ICG), Boston College and the Scientific Committee on Solar Terrestrial Physics (SCOSTEP) and the US Institute of Navigation are co-sponsors of this workshop.
