Welcome to the Fourth European Space Weather Week
Jointly organised by the Royal Observatory of Belgium (ROB), ESA, the SWWT and the COST 724 communities. The local organisation is done by the SIDC of the ROB.

This meeting was created in 2004. It now sits durably in the frame of space weather in the world. It has grown into the most important annual milestone of the European (and beyond) community in the discipline
The fourth ESWW takes place as: • The COST 724 project comes to an end. COST 724 was at the origin of the ESWW meetings along with ESA. COST strongly contributed to structure the European space weather scientific community. • A new COST action is currently submitted (A. Belehaki)
The fourth ESWW takes place as: • Several successes in FP7 !!! • The SOlar – TERestrial Investigation and Archives (SOTERIA) project (Giovanni Lapenta) • The real-time database of neutron monitor observationsproject (R. Vainio) • Space Weather and Europe - an Education Tool with the Sun (SWEETS) funded by FP6 since last year and currently active (F. Jansen)
The fourth ESWW takes place as: • ESA investigates what actions to take following a successful conclusion of the Space Weather Applications Pilot Project • National space weather initiatives are gaining momentum across Europe • Planetary Space Weather is recognize in the new FP7 Europlanet project (M. Blanc)
About 130 registered participants from more than 25 countries working in diverse areas of space weather (more than 200 participants expected) Participation

WIFI connexion There is a WIFI connexion In the conference room, it is aimed at being used during the coffee breaks. I urge you NOT to read / write your mails during the talks. I will do the police regularly, asking to shut up the lattops if necessary. Outside the room, many places have been organized so that you can use it at your convenience anytime.
Attendants funded by COST 724 will have to sign the attendance list every day. The list will be handled by SYHEM PERRIOT and must be signed every day.
