Dynamic Sun III: A new era of multi-wavelength solar and stellar observation

July 30, 2020, from Viktor Fedun

Venue and date
San Pedro de Atacama (near ALMA facility), Hotel Cumbres, Chile, 16-20 December 2020

‘Dynamic Sun’ is a conference series, which provides a highly visible platform to the observers, theoreticians, numerical modellers and instrumentation experts in the fields of solar and stellar physics and space science to discuss cutting edge scientific challenges. The first and second Dynamic Sun meetings focused on solar magnetism and MHD wave phenomena in the solar atmosphere and took place in 2016 in Varanasi, India and 2018 in Angkor Wat, Cambodia.
The Dynamic Sun III meeting will follow up on the success of the first two. The focus of the Dynamic Sun III meeting will be to discuss in detail the recent achievements and future research related to the multi-wavelength solar and stellar observations. Special attention will be paid to the solar-stellar connection and the key results and goals of the current and proposed space and ground-based instruments.

This meeting will also be useful for future scientific data interpretation from a new generation instruments, e.g., the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST), Solar Orbiter, European Solar Telescope (EST), Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA), Solar Parker Probe, VLT, SKA. In particular, a session will be devoted to Solar and Stellar ALMA results.

We warmly welcome participation of internationally recognised experts in the fields of solar and stellar physics, early career researchers and PhD students. Dynamic Sun III will help to establish long-term relationships between research groups.

Depending on the developing international situation the meeting may have to be postponed until 2021

The conference will cover the following scientific themes:
 Highlights from the Solar Eclipse 2020
 Solar Atmospheric Multi-Layer Magnetic Coupling
 Fundamental MHD and Kinetic Mechanisms of Energy Release
 Mass and Energy Cycles at Multiple Scales
 Solar and Stellar surface features: implications from dynamos
 Solar and Stellar Science with ALMA, SKA & ESO facilities
 Solar-Stellar Connections Across the Multi-Wavelength Spectrum
 Novel Observational Instruments and their Science Goals
