Radio observations of the Sun and solar disturbances in interplanetary space provide unique information on magnetic field and other properties of the solar corona, high-energy electrons, shock waves, and coronal mass ejections. The recent emphasis on Space Weather studies combined with the prospect of new ground and space-based solar radio instruments such as the Frequency Agile Solar Array (FASR) and the SWAVES instrument on the Stereo mission, make it timely to have a topical session on Solar and Space Weather Radiophysics. We have organized the session around a slate of invited talks on solar and interplanetary radio science and instrumentation, as detailed below.

Call for Posters: We are also organizing a parallel poster session for contributed papers, and invite all interested participants to submit abstracts for this poster session.
