Call for International Team Proposals 2014
The purpose of this Call is to invite proposals for study projects from International Teams.
Teams are one of the ISSI tools, through which relatively small groups of scientists involved in Space Research can work together in an efficient and flexible format of several subsequent meetings, during which data are analysed and compared with theories and models.
This Call is jointly made by ISSI and ISSI-BJ for the first time.
Successful applicants for International Teams can organize all or part of their team meetings either in Bern or in Beijing, but the applicants are required to show the “added value” of ISSI or ISSI-BJ in the applications. The applicants are, therefore, required to indicate clearly if they are applying for ISSI and/or for ISSI-BJ. These proposals are evaluated and selected by the ISSI Science Committee in May 2014.
Deadline for submission to ISSI: March 31, 2014

Blazing a Trail in Search of the Secrets of Comets
For centuries astronomers have chased comets across the skies, looking for clues as to the origins of our solar system. Tugged from deep-space by the gravity of the sun, they shed dust and gas as they warm, revealing some of their secrets within.
