The joint SCOSTEP-WDS workshop on ‘Global Data Activities for the Study of Solar-Terrestrial Variability’ will be held from 28 to 30 September 2015 at the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, Tokyo, Japan.
The principal objective of this Workshop is to stimulate interaction among data providers, data scientists, and the data-oriented researchers participating in the Scientific Committee on Solar–Terrestrial Physics (SCOSTEP), an Interdisciplinary Body of ICSU promoting a series of international research programmes on solar–terrestrial connections. SCOSTEP's current Variability of the Sun and Its Terrestrial Impact (VarSITI) programme will strive for international collaboration in data analysis, modelling, and theory to understand how the solar variability affects the Earth’s environment in a vast range of time scale, from seconds to billions of years.
Long-term preservation and provision of quality-assessed data and information are common objectives of SCOSTEP and WDS for the VarSITI programme, as well as development of advanced data systems to enable scientists to perform multidisciplinary data-analysis. Data analysis of selected solar-terrestrial events will be an important component of the workshop also, in order to not only develop the study of solar-terrestrial variability but also establish a mutual feedback loop between 'data users' and data providers.
Principal topics of the workshop are:
• Application of information technology to mutual data activities
• Data systems for VarSITI (data centres, data networks, data analysis systems, etc.)
• Data analysis (VarSITI Campaign Intervals and others)
• Data-oriented collaborations between SCOSTEP and WDS.
