First Announcement: XIII COLAGE – Conferencia Latinoamericana de Geofísica Espacial

First Announcement
XIII COLAGE - Conferencia Latinoamericana de Geofísica Espacial
São José dos Campos (SP), Brazil
27th November to 2nd December 2022

The Asociación Latinoamericana de Geofísica Espacial (ALAGE) is an
an autonomous scientific society that attempts to motivate the development of
research in Space Geophysics, taking advantage of the human resources and
the cultural unity, as well as the similar economic conditions of Latin
America. ALAGE seeks to complement the activities of the existing regional
geophysical organisms.

One of the main activities of ALAGE is the periodical organization of
meetings that are attended by most of the scientists working in the ALAGE
areas of interest: the middle and high atmosphere, the ionosphere, the
magnetosphere, the interplanetary medium, the cosmic rays, the planets,
satellites, minor planets and small bodies, the Sun and the
Solar-terrestrial environment. These meetings are called Conferencia
Latinoamericana de Geofísica Espacial (COLAGE).

Previous COLAGE workshops have been held in diverse locations: Brazil
(1988), Mexico (1991), Cuba, (1993), Argentina (1996), Costa Rica, (1998)
Chile (2001), Brazil (2004), Mexico (2007), Costa Rica (2011), Peru
(2014), Argentina (2018), and Chile (2021, online).

The XIII COLAGE will be held at the National Institute for Space Research
(INPE) in São José dos Campos (SP), Brazil, from 27th November to 2nd
December 2022. The focus of the upcoming COLAGE in São José dos Campos
will include the following scientific fields:

•       Space Weather
•       Ionospheric Research
•       Neutral Atmosphere Dynamics
•       Solar Physics
•       Earth Magnetic Field, including Ground Magnetism
•       Interplanetary Magnetic Field, including Magnetospheric Physics
•       Non-Linear Processes

COLAGE International Space Science School (ISSS)

Historically, ALAGE also promotes schools associated with COLAGEs. The
International Space Science School (ISSS) will take place from November 24
to 26, 2022, at the same venue of the XIII COLAGE. The aim of the school
is promoting knowledge and training for undergraduate, master's and
doctoral candidates, from all over the world, in the area of Space
Sciences, covering topics such as the Sun and the Solar Activity,
Interplanetary Medium and the Solar Wind, Magnetosphere, Ionosphere, Upper
Atmosphere, Planetary Sciences and Space Weather.
