LOFAR for Space Weather (LOFAR4SW) is a design study that addresses all conceptual and technical aspects required to upgrade the LOFAR radio telescope, system-wide, to take on a parallel role as a highly innovative new facility that enables large-scale monitoring projects generating unique data for the European (and worldwide) space weather research community, with great downstream potential for improved precision and advance warning of space weather events affecting crucial infrastructures on earth.
The LOFAR4SW User Workshop will be held at Space Research Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences on November 6-7 in Warsaw, Poland.
The meeting will gather the Project participants and representatives from different areas of the space weather community in order to inform about the mid- and long-term outcomes of the LOFAR4SW project and to find a common ground for the future exploitation of the results.
This will be the basis for the future plan to implement the designed LOFAR4SW infrastructure. The users will have a unique possibility to express their interest in the specific scientific areas explored within the project. The collected feedback from the workshop will help to prioritise the designed project products and operational modes, taking into account the interest of the space weather community.
The LOFAR4SW User Workshop is receives financial support from RadioNet, for the support of 2 speakers.
