Event Description

This event continues the legacy of the frontier-thinking, cross-disciplinary gathering that the Eddy Symposia have come to define. The overarching theme of the 4th Eddy Symposium is “Why Grand Challenges in Solar Terrestrial Physics Require Open Science and how to achieve it?”

Please join us this fall to engage in frontier scientific discussions as we address the application of Open Science through four focused areas:

  • Open Science Methods: Emerging Open Science Methodologies 
  • The Interconnection of Sun, Climate, and Society 
  • Risk and Resiliency to Space Weather Disruption 
  • (Exo)Planetary Atmosphere: the Impact of Stars and Solar Physics on Habitability & Life

Post Symposium Outcomes

Work after the 4th Eddy Symposium is ongoing. Next year the Working Groups will continue with their brainstorming sessions and efforts to move science forward in the areas of: Exoplanets; Space Weather; and the Interconnection of Sun, Climate & Society.

Borne from last year's Eddy Symposium were a white paper on "How Open Data and Interdisciplinary Collaboration Improve Our Understanding of Space Weather: A Risk & Resiliency Perspective," as well as a new publication in Frontiers. Stay tuned for more.
