Six New International Teams Selected in 2018

The Science Committee has selected six excellent international teams in response to the 2018 Annual Call for Teams. The following teams are to carry out a research project in the premises of ISSI-BJ within the next two years:

 Research Field

Team Leader

 Proposal Title


Romano D. (IT) & Zhang Z.-Y. (UK)

Chemical abundances in the ISM: the litmus test of stellar IMF variations in galaxies across cosmic time (ISSI-BJ & ISSI Team)


Fan Z. (CN)

Weak Gravitational Lensing Studies from Space Missions (ISSI-BJ & ISSI Team)


Lasue J. (FR) & Wiens R. (US)

Cross-calibration of Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) instruments for planetary exploration (ISSI-BJ & ISSI Team)


 Li J. (CN)

Understanding and unifying the gamma rays emitting scenarios in high mass and low mass X-ray binaries

Earth Science

Mironova I. (RU)

Relativistic electron precipitation and its atmospheric effect
 Solar Physics  Vial J.-C. (FR)& Chen P.-F. (CN)  The eruption of solar filaments and the associated mass and energy transport

The proposals were submitted following the Annual Call jointly issued by ISSI-BJ and the International Space Science Institute (ISSI) in January 2018. The Science Committee of ISSI-BJ and ISSI evaluated, prioritized and recommended the most outstanding proposals to ISSI-BJ. The teams will cover different disciplines of Space Science.

The Teams are composed of about 8-15 scientists of different laboratories, nationalities and expertise. These small groups of scientists involved in Space Research can work together in an efficient and flexible format of several subsequent meetings, during which data are analyzed and compared with theories and models. Usually, they hold a series of two to three one-week meetings over a period of 12 to 18 months.

The aim of Teams is to carry out a research project leading to publications in scientific journals. The activity is directed and organized by a team leader who is also the initiator of the proposal to ISSI-BJ. Although in close contact with the scientific staff of the Institute, teams are largely autonomous in the execution of their project.
