Report of the Workshop A/AC.105/1215



The International Space Weather Initiative (ISWI) is a program of international cooperation to advance space weather science by a combination of instrument deployment, analysis and interpretation of space weather data from these instruments in conjunction with other data, and the communication of the results to the public.

The ISWI activities are coordinated by a Steering Committee, supported by its Secretariat. A ISWI newsletter is published by the International Center for Space Weather Science and Education (ICSWSE) of Kyushu University, Japan, and the ISWI website is maintained by the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (
