Swedish Space Plasma Physics Meeting, Kiruna, 14-15 February 2017

The Swedish Space Plasma Physics meeting (once known as the IRF-KTH meeting) will take place in Kiruna on 14-15 February 2017.

More details will follow, but we start after lunch on the first day and continue until lunch the following day. Further splinters are encouraged for those with more things to discuss.

There will also be more details later about the format, but as usual there will be group presentations. We will also have a theme with a few selected talks on "Observations of small scale phenomena - Rosetta and MMS results”.
