Call for Proposals 2017 Johannes Geiss Fellowship
The JGF is established to attract to ISSI - for limited duration visits - international scientists of stature, who can make demonstrable contributions to the ISSI mission and increase ISSI’s stature by their presence and by doing so will honour Johannes Geiss for his founding of ISSI and his contributions to ISSI, and for his many contributions to a broad range of space science disciplines. Deadline for submission to ISSI: March 20, 2017.

Call for Proposals 2017 Johannes Geiss Fellowship

Call for Team Proposals 2017

Teams are one of the ISSI and ISSI-BJ tools, through which small groups of scientists can work together in an efficient and flexible format of several subsequent meetings, during which data are analyzed and compared with theories and models. This call is open to scientists of any nationality, and active in research in Space Sciences and Earth Sciences using space data. These proposals are evaluated and selected by the ISSI Science Committee in mid May 2017.

This Call is jointly made by ISSI and ISSI-BJ. 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. Deadline for letter of intent: February 17, 2017.
