        IHY Science Kickoff Meeting, 20 Feb 2007, Vienna
                                Outline
• Introduction to Coordinated Investigation Programmes (CIPs)
   – Motivation
   – Process

• Present status
   – CIPs proposed
   – Coordination activities
   – CIP groupings

• Next steps
   – Coordination, Cooperation, Collaboration, Consolidation
   – Access to resources
   – Presenting results

                                                                      2

IHY Science Coordination – Motivation
• Decentralised
   – Grassroots driven
   – No central authority to direct the science

• Low bureaucracy
   – Should be useful, not a red-tape exercise

• Cross-disciplinary
   – Facilitate investigation of ‘Universal Processes’
   – Enable researchers to use ‘unfamiliar’ resources




                                                                       3

    Coordinated Investigation Programmes
• Programmes of work requiring multiple independent resources

• Based on the SoHO Joint Observing Programme (JOP) model
   – Investigations not just Observations
       • Modelling, Retrospective Data Analysis, Theory

• Open access
   – Anyone can propose a CIP, whether they operate the required
     facilities or not
   – All CIP proposals are public

• Autonomy
   – IHY facilitates activities but does not run them
   – The proposer retains control
                                                                       4

             CIPs – Why create one?
• Advertising
   – Provides a “shop window” for activities
   – Encourage others to participate and collaborate
   – Make connections between related activities

• Enabling
   – Help establish contact with representatives of the facilities needed
     (instruments, observatories, databases, model codes)

• Reporting
   – Links the programme with IHY reporting activities such as the Universal
     Process workshops and public outreach programmes

                  It is the way of identifying that
                  a science activity is part of IHY
                                                                            5

      CIP process
            • CIP submission
               – Register an interest in IHY
               – Advertise one’s intentions

            • CIP co-ordination and support
               – Discipline planners review CIPs
                   • Identify overlaps, synergies
                   • Help proposers gain access to
                     instruments, data, models
               – Data archiving

            • Universal process workshops
               – Co-ordinated reviews of work
                 undertaken as part of IHY

           Discipline Planners – Role
• Would
  – Review CIPs in their discipline for overlaps, synergies
  – Contact CIP leaders to offer help, give advice

• Could
   – Assist in gaining access to resources because of IHY link
     e.g. letters of recommendation to support funding, access to
     data, observing time,

• Would not (could not)
  – Decide what people must or must not do

            Coordination – Next Steps
• Contact identified data/instrumental clusters
   – VLF ionospheric remote sensing
   – Global ionosphere data and modelling

• Continue to identify and contact thematic clusters

• Planning for the International Global Explorer Campaign

• All projects
   – Continue to encourage update of CIP information and especially
      web pages
   – Get data catalogued in CAWSES-IHY Data System
   – Start linking with IHY Universal Process workshops
                                                                       19
