The fourth meeting of the PROBA2 Science Working Team will take place on November 28 afternoon in conjunction with the European Space Week ESWW8. The meeting is fully open for everybody interested in the science results of SWAP and LYRA. Anyone interested to bring an oral contribution is invited to contact swap_lyra at


Namur, Palais des Congres, Room "Paul Bury". Tuesday Novembre 29 2011. 12h30-18h00. Sandwich lunch foreseen from 12h00 onwards.
