This year, the 9th European CubeSat Symposium (9ECS) running from Wednesday 29th November to Friday 1st December is co-located with the European Space Weather Week 2017 (ESWW14) that runs from Monday 27th November to Friday 1st December.
During this week the two conferences will run in parallel. To simplify the registration process for all the attendees, there will be one single ticket at a fixed price valid for both conferences. This means that every registered attendee is able to attend one or the other conference independently (this is valid for all sessions).
However, for logistic reasons every attendee will be asked during the registration process to choose one or the other conference (9ECS or ESWW14). This will help the organization committee to appropriately select the contributions and involve the attendees in a more active way.
If you register for the 9ECS, you can submit abstracts for the CubeSat sessions and ask for a CubeSat exhibition booth within the 9ECS website.
If you register for ESWW14, you can submit an abstract for the ESWW14 sessions, apply for a Topical Working Discussion (call will follow), ask for a business meeting, apply for the Live Space Weather Forecast (call will follow), for an ESWW14 fair stand, for an ESWW14 exhibition stand etc. As a ESWW14 participant, you can help defining the content of ESWW14.
It is very simple: one ticket for both conference. ESWW14 participants can attend ALL the CubeSat activities and CubeSat participants can attend ALL the ESWW14 activities. The coffee breaks, lunches, beer tasting event and conference dinner are also to be shared among all participants.
