SDO 2020 Science Workshop: A Decade of Discovery

February 15, 2020, from W. Dean Pesnell

The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) invites you to the SDO 2020 Science Workshop: A Decade of Discovery, to be held October 12-16, 2020, at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver, BC, Canada. All members of the science community are welcome and encouraged to attend.

The ten years since the launch of SDO has seen many papers in wide ranges of science results from this mission. As Solar Cycle 25 begins its rise to maximum, we will get together to discuss what we learned about the Sun and anticipate what the new cycle will look like.

The invited speakers who will introduce themed sessions spanning SDO‘s wide range of research topics are:
Junwei Zhao: Subsurface Flows, the Dynamo, and the Solar Cycle
Stan Solomon: Phun with Photons: Response of atmospheres to EUV variability
Paulo Simoes: Short-term Solar Variability
Aimee Norton: Magnetic Flux in the SDO Era: From Emergence to Eruption
KD Leka: SDO for Space Weather: Science and Applications
Dan Seaton: The SDO Corona and Beyond
Patrick Antolin: Energy and Mass Transfer Between the Corona and the Chromosphere
Xudong Sun: Vector Magnetic Field: Progress and Prospects

There will also be one day of parallel mini-workshops and an EUV calibration workshop.

Registration, abstract submission, and other information about SDO 2020 will be made available at
