    Author Instructions

    A series of two meetings under the general title of Solar Cycle and Space Weather Euroconferences (SOLSPA) has been approved by the European Union for the years 2000 and 2001. The series is aimed at gathering, around selected topics of interest to solar physics, senior and junior researchers (from both the theoretical and the observational fields) and instrument technology experts, for better profiting from new ideas and instrumentation. The European Union co-sponsors the series by funding half of the budget.

    After the success of the first SOLSPA conference, "The Solar Cycle and Terrestrial Climate" held in Tenerife (Spain) in September, 2000, it is our pleasure to announce the second meeting of the series: "Solar Cycle and Space Weather", that will be held in Vico Equense (Napoli, Italy) from the 25th to the 29th of September, 2001. European staff members of SOLSPA are: 

    B. Schmieder - Observatoire de Meudon, France 
    P. N. Brandt - Kiepenheuer Institute, Germany 
    B. Fleck - ESA, The Netherlands 
    O. Kjeldseth-Moe - Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics, Norway 
    G. Cauzzi - Arcetri Astrophysical Observatory, Italy

    The conference will be held in the Giusso Castle in the town of Vico Equense, near the city of Sorrento in southern Italy. From this location one overlooks the Bay of Naples, with the Vesuvius volcano and the ruins of Pompeii in one direction and the island of Capri in the other. The town is about one hour away by rail, bus, or ferry from the city and airport of Naples.  photos
