1. AGU US Early Career Basu Award
From: Eftyhia Zesta (eftyhia.zesta at nasa.gov)

Dear colleagues,

Please, do not forget to nominate our outstanding early career scientists for the US Basu award. The deadline for nomination is fast approaching; April 15, 2016!

The U.S. Basu award honors young scientists who have demonstrated scientific success in studying the plasma physical processes that couple Earth's atmosphere to driving mechanisms in the magnetosphere, solar wind, and Sun.

Information about eligibility and required documents can be found here:


Only US citizens and residents are eligible. Recent graduates, not more than 3 years from graduation, will be considered.


So send your nomination right away and contact the Chair of the U.S. Sunanda and Santimay Basu Award Committee with questions: Dr. Eftyhia Zesta (eftyhia.zesta at nasa.gov)

2. Call for Abstracts for ISROSES III: September 12-16, 2016, Bulgaria
From: Vania Jordanova (vania at lanl.gov)

The abstract submission deadline for the International Symposium on Recent Observations and Simulations of the Sun-Earth System III (ISROSES III) in Golden Sands, Bulgaria, is fast approaching.

The purpose of the conference is to improve present understanding of the complex, multi-scale, interactions in the Sun-Earth System (from deep within the Sun to the Earth’s atmosphere) by creating a forum for researchers from all space science communities to present and discuss recent advances and future research directions.

The scientific discussions will include but are not limited to the following themes:
- Interactions and coupling within the Sun-Earth System (SES)
- Advances in measurement, theory, and simulations of the SES
- Reaction of the Earth system to the Sun and the solar wind
- Recent research in space weather science and applications

Format: Talks, posters, and audience-participation discussions.

Important Deadlines:
1 May 2016: Abstract submission.
1 June 2016: Travel fellowship applications.
1 July 2016: Early bird registration.

Further information about this meeting and details on how to submit your abstract, registration, etc. can be found at:
You can also find there a high-resolution version of the conference poster, available for download. We would like to encourage you to display this poster at your institution or campus.

The conveners:
Vania Jordanova, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM, USA
Joe Borovsky, Space Science Institute, Boulder, CO, USA
