SWIFF Activities

Below each WP leader describes the science and activity of each WP. The information is cross linked with the main SWIFF web page.

  1. WP1: management activities.
  2. WP2: Multi-scale, multi-physics software tools
  3. WP3: Coupling at the solar surface
  4. WP4: Solar wind interaction with the magnetosphere
  5. WP5: Coupling at the Earth
  6. WP6: Dissemination

Capacities Inventory

Outreach activities: Swiff is committed to the outreach towards the European society.

Collaborations outside Swiff: Swiff is an open collaborative effort, where collaborations with other european projects and international collaborations are a central theme.

Dissemination Activities within Swiff

Two key aspects of SWIFF are the publication of articles in refereed journals and the presentations at conferences (in the form of posters or oral communications):

We keep records of SWIFF related papers published or submitted for publication, and conference presentations. Every member of SWIFF can directly put their publications and presentations here:

  1. Publications_SWIFF
  2. Invited_Talks_SWIFF
  3. Talks_SWIFF
  4. Outreach
  5. Code Releases

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under the grant agreement SWIFF (project n° 263340, www.swiff.eu).

All talks and poster funded by SWIFF must show the flag of the EU, the logo of the FP7 and the SWIFF logo. These are provided on the main SWIFF web page.

We have given in depth thought at our Dissemination Plan.

SWIFF has its description on wikipedia: SWIFF on wikipedia

Benchmark Activities

As part of WP2 and WP4, we are preparing a number of benchmark that can test:

  • the effect of using different numerical methods for a given mathematical-physics model
  • the effect of using different mathematical-physics models for the same physical system
  • tests of our diagnostics, for example different visualisations, study of topology, study of QSL.

We are considering the following benchmarks:

  1. Spontaneous Turbulence in Reconnection in 2D and in 3D
  2. Longcope-Strauss Problem in 2D
  3. Magnetopause Challenge in 2D
  4. Three arcade break-out model in 2D
  5. CME Initiation Challenge in 3D
  6. One flux rope

A preliminary overview of one-fluid MHD realizations for the 3 first 2D challenges using MPI-AMRVAC is given here.

The (internal) report on the Magnetopause Challenge is available here: Report on Magnetopause Challenge.

SWIFF News

SWIFF Meetings

  • Planned smaller meetings of interested to a subset of SWIFFers are listed instead on Current Meetings.
  • Past smaller meetings of interested to a subset of SWIFFers are listed under SWIFF Visits and Subset Meetings. An important part of SWIFF is the collaboration between members. We try to keep a list of visits among members. All members who go on travel visiting other SWIFF members are encouraged to add to the list.

SWIFF Reports

All reporting is now occurring online. Reports should be turned in to the Coordinator in PDF format. The Coordination Team will in turn submit them to the online system.

Reference material ach beneficiary should read:

  1. The document of the EC on reporting
  2. The EC template of the annual report


For reference on reporting and other issues, please, review the talks by KU Leuven and by the program officer during the kick-off meeting and the official document web site of FP7: FP7 Documents.

Deliverable reports

Deliverable reports are due to the Coordinator within 2 weeks of the deadline listed in the deliverable table of Annex I. The lead Beneficiary is responsible for meeting the deadline. In turn, the Coordinator is responsible for providing the reports to the Program Officer.


The deliverable reports should start with the coverpage provided here: Cover Page Template


The public deliverable reports completed so far are available at: Deliverable Reports.

First semiannual progress report

Here we will collect our input on the status so far. Suggestion, organize it by deliverable and milestone and for each provide a brief description of the activities done highlighting the collaborations between different centers. A template will be provided after the Lapland meeting.

First semiannual status report

For future reference on reporting and other issues, please, review the talks by KU Leuven and by the program officer during the kick-off meeting and the official document web site of FP7: FP7 Documents

First annual progress report



  • Deadlines:
  1. Registration in the FORCE Online system: January 20
  2. Completion of WP summaries (goals and progress): January 23 (WP Leaders only)
  3. Completion of the deliverable/mileston reports: January 31
  4. End of Year 1 of SWIFF: January 31
  5. Table "explanation of the use of resources": February 15
  6. Entering the FORM C online in FORCE: February 15


For reference on reporting and other issues, please, review the talks by KU Leuven and by the program officer during the kick-off meeting and the official document web site of FP7: FP7 Documents.
