February 7, 2017, from Richard Morton

This conference will take place at the University of Cambridge on 11-12 September, 2017 to mark Michael Proctor’s retirement.

The meeting will cover topics on which Mike’s scientific research has been focused throughout his career. We therefore encourage abstract submissions on dynamo theory, MHD, convection, magnetoconvection and other relevant topics. All abstract submissions are very welcome and we particularly encourage presentations from Mike’s former students and close collaborators.

Abstract submission can be completed here:

There will be a conference fee, which will include the cost of a conference dinner at a local college in Cambridge. A second announcement with further details will appear in due course. If you would like to get more information before then, please contact the local organising team:
• Dr. Robert Teed (rt449(at)
• Ms. Valeria Shumaylova (vs391(at)

Please forward on this message to any additional colleagues who may be interested.
