Bring together AWESOME ELF/VLF receiver site hosts from around the world for intense exploration of physical processes in the Earth's low and high altitude plasma environment
Will consist of invited research lectures, hands‐on data tutorials on specialized topics, cooperative research activities, interactive networking sessions
AWESOME site hosts will have organized activities to exchange and jointly analyze data, and propose future research collaborations
