International Conference on Solar Eruptive Events (http://pwg.gsfc.nasa.gov/istp/solar_events/) The conference will focus solar eruptive events observed by multi-spacecraft and ground based instruments to gain a complete picture. The conference will also deal with related issues such as theory and modeling of solar eruptions, coupling with the magnetosphere, interplanetary scintillations and solar wind composition during the eruptive events. The broad topics are: 1. Origin of CMEs, Flares and Prominence Eruptions 2. Coronal and Interplanetary Shocks 3. Solar Energetic Particles 4. Composition of CME-related Solar Wind 5. CMEs, Interplanetary Ejecta and Magnetic Clouds 6. Interplanetary Scintillations When: March 6-9, 2000 Where: Center for Solar Physics and Space Weather, Department of Physics, The Catholic University of America (CUA), Washington DC 20064 (see http://directory.cua.edu/ for directions).
