The International Space Weather Camp is coming to South Africa for the third time since its inception in 2011. Initially the ISWC (formerly JSWSC, Joint Space Weather Summer Camp) was a partnership between DLR, University of Rostock and University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAHuntsville). The collaboration was extended in 2015 with SANSA joining DLR and UAHuntsville in participating and hosting in a trilateral arrangement.
Applicants must be final year BSc/BEng/Honours or Masters Students in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science or Electronics and must be South African citizens or permanent residents.
Successful applicants will be fully funded to participate in the ISWC 2021. Funding will include airtime for the virtual part and transport, accommodation and meals for the second part of the Camp in condition that the applicant attended all the virtual sessions.
Application is now open and closes on 28 February 2021.
