SPEDAS (MMS, THEMIS, ERG ...) Tutorials and User/Programmer Coordination Session at mini-GEM

From: Jim Lewis, Vassilis Angelopoulos (vassilis at ucla.edu), Eric Grimes, Barbara Giles, Jim Burch

Space Physics Environment Data Analysis System tutorials and user/programmer coordination at mini-GEM: 15:30 - 17:00, Sunday Dec 13, 2015, at Oregon Rm, Holiday Inn Golden Gateway, SF, CA

The SPEDAS community, including the MMS, THEMIS, ERG and other Heliophysics/Geospace teams are planning a joint software tutorial and users/programmers forum to be held at the mini-GEM Dec 2015.  This session is to introduce the multi-mission analysis software SPEDAS to a wider community, coordinate SPEDAS users/programmers on how make the software more effective, provide tutorials on the basic software functionality for THEMIS, ERG and MMS data analysis, discuss software updates to various mission plug-ins, and plan for the upcoming GEM meeting. This end-of-day session will spill-over to an on-site session for people with their own laptops with IDL, assuming internet connection is available. The session's agenda is at: http://spedas.org/blog/2015/12/07/spedas-at-the-december-2015-mini-gem/ 

The MMS demo will include real time on-line data loading and use of the analysis software by the community. Users can download the MMS plug-in together with SPEDAS from http://spedas.org/downloads/spdsw_latest.zip and the MMS data for the demo from: http://spedas.org/downloads/mms_demo_data.zip starting a few days prior to the conference. Please note MMS rules of the road at: https://lasp.colorado.edu/galaxy/display/mms/MMS+Data+Rights+and+Rules+for+Data+Use 

SPEDAS speaker requests should be addressed to: Jim Lewis: jwl at ssl.berkeley.edu
