International Workshop on Space Weather and Space Navigation

3-4 October 2017, Beni-Suef University, Egypt

As society becomes increasingly dependent on space-based systems, it is vital to understand how space weather, caused by solar variability, could affect, among other things, space systems and human space flight, electric power transmission, high-frequency radio communications, global navigation satellite system (GNSS) signals, as well as failures of many geostationary orbit communication satellites.

The workshop aims to go through the study of severe magnetic and ionospheric storms caused by active solar phenomena, and discuss the destructive effects on orbit communication satellites, radio blackouts and power outages on Earth.


  • Space weather impact on aviation.
  • Space Weather prediction and forecasting.
  • Solar active phenomena
  • Different Ionospheric instrumentation.
  • Ionospheric scintillation.
  • VLF and GIC Research.
  • Space Navigation
