SWQU User Meeting 2024
The University of Alabama in Huntsville, May 20—23, 2024

Publicly Accessible Software for Modeling Space Weather with Quantified Uncertainties

Supported Jointly by NSF and NASA, the dedicated science teams across the country have been developing new, free-access software for modeling physical processes determining space weather at Earth and other planets. This software involves the PFSS/PFCS solvers, a surface flux transport (Open Flux Transport, OFT) on the solar surface, and coronal (WSA) and heliospheric models operating with the high order of accuracy and efficient parallelism on modern computer architectures (CPUs and GPUs), and capable of performing simulations on adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) cubed sphere grids (HelioCubed).

The meeting will include lectures describing the developed software, which will be followed by hands-on experience. Students are especially encouraged to apply, but this is not a requirement. Recommendations from student’s supervisors will be required. Full financial support is expected for 15-20 students.


Any inquiries should be addressed to Nikolai Pogorelov,


The deadline for the registration has been extended until April 26, 2024. The registration link is provided below. Note: All participants should register irrespective of financial support requirements.
