Ten current and former ISM CREATE students attended the Division of Atmospheric and Space Physics (DASP) conference held at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton over the reading week break. In addition, 5 of the ISM CREATE faculty were in attendance.
Students participated in the first student workshop held at DASP. The workshop was organized and led by students. It was an excellent opportunity to network and meet fellow HQP in the field. The workshop introduced students to the various fields of study in the near-Earth Solar-Terrestrial environment and the techniques and instruments used in research. During the main conference, a student paper competition was held and once again ISM CREATE students came away with honours. Leonid Olifer of the University of Alberta repeated his first place showing in the competition, while Victoria Foss of the University of Calgary took 3rd place and Draven Galeschuck of the University of Saskatchewan was 1st runner up.
