First announcement for the Fourth UK-Ukraine-Spain Meeting on Solar Physics and Space Science (UKUS)
Kyiv, Ukraine
Monday 28th August – Friday 1st September 2017

Important deadlines
Registration deadline – 1 June 2017
Abstract submission deadline – 15 June 2017

The meeting will cover a broad range of aspects of solar physics, space science and solar-terrestrial relations. We aim to include every side of solar and space research, including observations, theory, and numerical modelling. The main idea behind the meeting is to treat the entire solar-terrestrial domain as one system, rather than each region independently.

The participants of the UKUS usually come from different backgrounds, therefore the meeting will be divided into a number of different topics highlighting a number of areas of expertise.

The most of the oral presentations will be scheduled in the morning sessions, followed by dedicated discussion meetings in the groups relating to the workshop objectives in the afternoon session. For the morning presentations, we foresee one-two invited speaker per topic, who should introduce their expertise to the participants. Contributed talks will be scheduled after the invited lecture. The afternoons are foreseen to have a more open character.

Our aim is to develop new collaborative projects leading to publications and grant applications. Enough discussion time will also be scheduled, to ensure sufficient interaction between the scientists, and allow for the generation of ideas for collaboration.

Tentative Programme:
– Dynamic processes in the Earth ionosphere
– MHD waves – coupling between lower solar atmosphere and corona (observations, theory, numerics)
– Solar energetic processes: dynamics of a small and large scale eruptive events
– Multi-scale plasma waves in the Sun-Earth system
