Third CORAMOD workshop was held at Physics department of the University of Kiel from 2 to 6 November 2015. Altogether 6 participants: Bernd Heber, Patrik Kühl, Johannes Marquardt, Dennis Galsdorf (Uni Kiel) and Bojan Vršnak, Jaša Čalogović (Hvar Observatory) were present during the workshop. Main topic was discussion about modeling of the magnetic cloud effects on the cosmic ray flux. During the visit in Kiel at Physics department Bojan Vršnak gave a seminar about research at Hvar Observatory and a lecture with the title: "Processes and Mechnisms Governing Initiation and Propagation of CMEs". Jaša Čalogović also presented his seminar with the title: "Cosmic ray cloud link: significant or marginal climate factor?".
From 31 August to 4 September second small CORAMOD workshop was held at Hvar Observatory. There were altogether 5 participants from Physics department of the University of Kiel and Hvar Observatory. The workshop was focused on: 1) Relating ground-based and spacecrafts measurements of Forbush decreases; 2) Compiling relevant data sets (in situ plasma and magnetic field measurements, combined with ground-based and in situ cosmic ray data; 3) Modeling of the magnetic cloud effects on the cosmic ray flux. A sample of ten well-observed events was compiled, the analysis procedure was defined, and modalities of the modeling approach were specified.
A workshop was held at the Hvar Observatory from 26 to 29 May 2015 with general topics on the cosmic ray modulation, Forbush decreases, coronal mass ejection initiation and propagation, and magnetic clouds in the interplanetary space. There were 14 participants from the Physics department of the University of Kiel, Physics Institute of the University of Graz, Space Research Institute in Graz and Hvar Observatory.

Agenda and the travel information are now available here for the workshop which will be held at the Hvar Observatory 26-29 May 2015. Within a scope of the workshop, a CORAMOD kick-off meeting is planned as well. The subject of the workshop is solar-terrestrial connection with the emphasis on the cosmic ray modulation.
