The Rarotonga Energetic Particle Workshop 2007

The Rarotonga Energetic Particle Workshop 2007 (also known as REPW 2007) was held on the island of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands, August 6-10, 2007. Further information is available from the REPW 2007 website.


The International Space Environment Conference 2001

The International Space Environment Conference 2001: Radiation Belt Science and Technology (also known as ISEC 2001) was held in Queenstown, New Zealand, July 23-27, 2001. Further information is available from the ISEC 2001 website, and here are some photographs from the meeting. Also, here is a great picture of New Zealand from space.
