Dynamic Sun III: special total solar eclipse meeting 2020. First announcement.

July 14, 2019, from Viktor Fedun

This special solar eclipse meeting (Villarrica, Chile, 14-20 December 2020) will be devoted to the recent achievements in understanding photospheric, chromospheric dynamics, energy transport between the lower and upper layers of the solar interior and the solar atmosphere and dynamical processes in the confined solar transients. Special attention will be paid to the key results and goals of the current and proposed space- and ground- based instruments. This meeting will pay special attention to a new generation ground-based instruments, for e.g., the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST, USA), European Solar Telescope (EST, Europe), new Indian facilities (MAST, upcoming 2m-NLST, Aditya-I) and more recently CHROMIS (located alongside CRISP at the Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope).

The meeting is organised in collaboration with Pontifical Catholic University of Chile in Villarrica (southern Chile) which is set on the path of the total 2020 solar eclipse phase: https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/solar/2020-december-14

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