BSS 2022 was held in honor of Patricia Doherty, BSS Chair, who passed away suddenly July 14, 2022
Given the current uptick in COVID cases in the Boston area, a mask mandate has been implemented for the conference so please bring masks with you.
We are pleased to announce that the 21st International Beacon Satellite Symposium will be held at Boston College on 1-5 August 2022.
The Beacon Satellite Symposium is a triennial event organized by the Beacon Satellite Studies Group of URSI Commission G – an interdisciplinary group, servicing science, research applications and engineering aspects of satellite signals observed from the ground and in space.
The Beacon Symposia provide distinctive opportunities for ionospheric scientists from all over the world to meet and collaborate on topics relevant to ionospheric effects on radio propagation.
Recent meetings of the Beacon Symposia have hosted between 125 and 200 people from over 40 countries. In our most recent meetings, we have seen an increase in the number of participants from developing countries in Africa, Asia and South America – presenting the Beacon Symposia with nearly worldwide coverage.
At this time, we invite you to view our website for information on registration, lodging, and the scientific sessions. The abstract deadline was April 29, 2022 with the link provided on the abstract page. URSI provided a link for us to utilize their Cvent system for abstract submissions and reviews. Registration links are now closed. Early Registration deadline was June 1, 2022.
It is our intent to assist travel and lodging costs for a limited number of young scientists and participants from developing countries. Awards will be made based on the quality of the abstract and financial need of the applicant. If you wish to request consideration of financial support, please send a note describing your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
