18th RHESSI Workshop – Second Announcement

The 18th RHESSI Workshop, “High-Energy Solar Physics; Building on the RHESSI Legacy,” will be held at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA, from May 28 through June 1, 2019. This workshop will follow the very successful format of previous RHESSI workshops, with a balanced mix of plenary and workshop sessions, focused on topical themes. The workshop will feature results from RHESSI and several other instruments studying high-energy solar physics, including NuSTAR, EOVSA, Fermi (GBM and LAT), and MinXSS, and will also focus on preparing for future missions such as FOXSI, ASO-S and STIX.

The conference website, which contains summary paragraphs explaining the themes of the various working groups, is at http://rhessi18.umn.edu/. Travel, registration, and local information will be added in the coming weeks. The abstract deadline is March 15, 2019, with the registration deadline soon after. As a novel feature, we are also asking registrants to vote on the best RHESSI nuggets, and the winning nuggets will be summarized by nugget-meister Hugh Hudson on the last day of the workshop. I encourage all of you to submit abstracts, register, and vote for your favorite nuggets, and I look forward to seeing you in Minnesota in May!
