I will be making a presentation at the 2008 Australian Space
Science Conference (http://www.nssa.com.au/ocs/index.php?cf=10) 
on "the current state of Australian research on space weather 
science and services".  To help me produce a reasonably balanced
overview (rather than a highly IPS-biased review) I would
appreciate a little information from all of you on your space
weather activities.  A recent review ppt file, or a few
key points and a summary slide are all I should need.  Web
references would probably be especially helpful in this respect.

Incidentally, a while back I agreed to produce a summary of
Australian Space Weather, for Lou Lanzerotti, that will appear in the
AGU Space Weather journal - so your input for my talk will
help keep that short article on track as well.

By the way: how do you define space weather?  Working at the
service end of the field, I have a service-oriented definition
in mind, but I'm very flexible.  If you have strong feelings 
about the definition, I would like to hear them.

I look forward to receiving your input,

best wishes,
