THEMIS/ARTEMIS Post-AGU SWT Meeting Fall 2022

Saturday, December 17, 2022

Meeting Information

We will resume our annual THEMIS/ARTEMIS SWT meeting right after AGU in Chicago on Saturday Dec 17th, 8:30am-5pm CST. This will be a hybrid-virtual event, the in-person venue will be the Hilton right near the convention center:

Hilton Garden Inn McCormick Place
3rd Floor Hudson-Commodore Meeting Room
123 E Cermak Rd Suite 300,
Chicago, IL 60616

Zoom link:
Meeting ID: 968 7761 7402
Passcode: 771102

This is a very informal rapid-fire, Q&A-style series of presentations, offering most science return per minute of attendance. Hope you will attend this meeting as it’s always a highlight of the AGU trip for many of us. The meeting will start with a 2 hr mission planning and outlook session, followed by science presentations highlighting current topics. As usual, we will have short talks (5 mins each AND 3 slides absolute maximum) with couple minutes for questions, which helps keep the meeting very focused.

Please register here:

Registration will be $20 for in-person attendance and $10 for remote attendance. Pastries, fruit, coffee, tea and juice will be provided.

Latest schedule is here [PDF updated 12/16] and below, please let us know asap if your talk is missing or needs any correction or schedule adjustment and we will do our best to accommodate.
