Space Weather Phenomena, Consequences, and Modeling or Reality, Harsh Reality, and Virtual Reality
July 18 - July 29, 2011, Boston University

This year the Center for Integrated Space Weather Modeling (CISM) Summer School will be held at Boston University, July 18 – July 29, 2011. The two-week school will closely follow the model of the previous successful Summer Schools, which comprehensively immersed students in the subject of space weather, what it is, what it does, and what can be done about it. The CISM summer school supplements standard curricula relating to the physics, "meteorology", and "climatology" of space with integrated overviews of the solar-terrestrial weather system from the Sun to the earth, its effects and consequences, and the state of the art in modeling it.
