The HESPERIA project, funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union, organises a workshop on solar energetic particle events, to be held
27 February (14:00) – 2 March 2017 (18:00)
at Paris Observatory (Paris, France)

The HESPERIA project is intended to further our ability to forecast SEP events, while also studying the general physics of high-energy particle acceleration and the relationship between SEPs and electromagnetic radiation of particles interacting in the solar atmosphere. The public project web site is .

The aim of this workshop is to present results of the HESPERIA project to a public of experts, and to discuss it with respect to other research. Key topics are
•    the understanding of high-energy particle acceleration in solar eruptive events,
•    observations, theory and modelling of SEP events,
•    solar cycle dependence of SEPs and the related solar events,
•    the development of forecasting techniques of SEP events

The workshop will be held over four days. It will consist of presentations by the HESPERIA team on research accomplished during the project and on methods and products developed for the purpose of SEP forecasting. Much time is planned to be available for discussions and brief ad-hoc presentations.

Scientists from outside the HESPERIA consortium are welcome to participate. Due to limiting space this will, however, only be possible upon invitation. Please contact the local organisers if you wish to participate and did not receive a letter of invitation so far. The organisers cannot provide financial support.

All participants are invited to propose oral contributions. Please send a title and an informal abstract by e-mail to the organisers: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
Deadline: 31 January 2017.
