“Into the Red Dragon’s Lair: Four-in-One Workshop Tackling Outstanding Problems in Heliophysics and Space Weather” at the Clayton Hotel, Cardiff, Wales, UK (03-08 December 2017) – Second Announcement.

August 1, 2017, from Mario Bisi

Dear Colleagues.

It is with great pleasure that we remind you that early registration (deadline 13 August 2017) and abstract submissions are open for our workshop entitled “Into the Red Dragon’s Lair: Four-in-One Workshop Tackling Outstanding Problems in Heliophysics and Space Weather”. Please register soon to stay ahead of the coming price increase – and please remember to pay in the second step of the process as registration is no complete until the second step is completed – we are only expecting around 40 participants to be able to maintain the workshop environment.

***Full details and deadlines can be found on the workshop website here: https://www.ukssdc.ac.uk/meetings/IntoTheRedDragonsLair/.***

Our Workshop encompasses four main themes:
– The “Fourth Remote-Sensing of the Inner Heliosphere Workshop”;
– “Where are we on Bz?” (a SEREN follow-on);
– “Novel Ionospheric Studies with Advanced Observing Techniques”; and
– The “11th LOFAR Solar Physics and Space Weather Key Science Project”.
(The combined workshop also incorporates the MWA SHI and future potential SKA SHI SWG science.)

The workshop aims to gather experts from the various fields of remote-sensing observations of the inner heliosphere, including EUV, white-/visible-light, and radio observations, together with modellers, in order to tackle key outstanding heliophysics issues. It is also intended to establish closer working relations and devise the best ways our group can move the field forward as a whole, tapping into observational capabilities that can be used to aid the upcoming Solar Orbiter and Parker Solar Probe Communities, as well as Space Weather science and forecasting enhancements in general.

The workshop registration fee (£120 early/£150 late) includes lunches, excursions, welcome reception, and workshop dinner (the latter three are all Welsh themed allowing participants an insight into Wales’ culture and recent history). Menus and excursion details have been updated accordingly on the website along with some other updates.

Several invited speakers have already been confirmed to include Sarah Gibson (UCAR), Colin Lonsdale (MIT Haystack), Jackie Davies (STFC RAL Space), Curt de Koning (NOAA SWPC), Anthony Yeates (Durham), David Jackson (Met Office), and Giovanni Lapenta (KU Leuven).

We look forward to welcoming you to Cardiff!

Best wishes,
