Advance Notice: Call for Proposals 2011

Teams are one of the ISSI tools, through which relatively small groups of scientists involved in Space Research can work together in an efficient and flexible format of several subsequent
meetings, during which data are analysed and compared with theories and models. This call is open to scientists of any nationality, and active in research in Space Sciences and Earth sciences using space data. The next call for proposals will be released in January 18, 2011. These proposals are evaluated and selected by the ISSI Science Committee in June 2011.

From the Directors
ISSI's first and most important duty is to serve the international community of Space Science. It is therefore a pleasure to introduce, with this Newsletter, another element to further improve our service. Please enjoy browsing and using it as an entry point to peruse our website. We welcome your feedback about the Newsletter or the Webpage to Andrea Fischer.
