Online Advanced Study Program on Helicities in Astrophysics and BeyondSeptember 14, 2020, from Kirill Kuzanyan
Following the preliminary announcement http://www.uksolphys.org/conference/online-advanced-study-program-on-helicities-in-astrophysics-and-beyond/ we are organizing the Online Advanced Study Program on Helicities in Astrophysics and Beyond.
We aim for not just an online replacement of traditional off-line meetings such as Helicity Thinkshops but more flexible communication involving rather broader community, by scientific interests, age, geographic coverage and experience in science, which would never physically gather for a traditional off-line focus event. The format of this activity is seen as a flexible communication platform rather than just a handful of meetings, so a wide bunch of scientists and students can optionally attend, participate and communicate with each other.
The proposed schedule of the Program will be spread over approximately 8 weeks between September through November/December 2020 with one or two sessions per week. Each session can be formed of either one 60+ minute talk, or two 30-40 minute talks with complementary discussion. We expect at least 15-20 presentations of various formats over the Program. The timing of each session can be arranged by convenience of the speaker and the community with account of their time zones. Afterwards, the lecture materials, such as podcasts, presentations files (at least brief) may be published fully or partly online. If you would like to give a talk, please contact the Scientific Program Committee (SPC) by email email@example.com.
The first 90-min session is planned on Friday 25 September starting at 13:00UTC. The Program will start with 60 min talk by Dr David MacTaggart (Glasgow, UK) “Magnetic winding – a key to unlocking topological complexity in flux emergence”, then followed at 14:00 UTC by Dr Julia Thalmann (Graz, Austria) “Magnetic helicity as indicator for solar eruptivity”.
The information about the Program and updates will be posted on https://www.izmiran.ru/helicity2020/.
If you are interested please register at https://helicity2020.izmiran.ru. There will be information about the forthcoming events and access details sent around to registered participants.
