UKSP Specialist Discussion Day 30th July: First announcement and call for abstracts

June 15, 2020, from Natasha Jeffrey

With the absence of NAM this year, the UKSP council will hold a one-day online meeting covering all aspects of solar physics, but with particular emphasis on promoting the work of early career researchers and PhD students.

The meeting will be held on the 30th July and it will cover three sessions:

  1.  Open session on solar physics

In this session we welcome all contributions describing advances relating to physical processes occurring from the interior to the outer atmosphere, based on space- or ground-based observations, simulations or theory.

2.   Sun-Heliosphere session

This session will discuss the connections between the Sun and the heliosphere: in-situ and remote-sensing observations, and related theory and modelling work, including contributions that discuss results from Parker Solar Probe and Solar Orbiter.

3.   Online poster session covering all solar/heliosphere topics.

Each oral session will be led by an invited talk from an early career researcher, followed by contributed talks with contributions from early career researchers and PhD students from across the UK given priority. While preference will be given to early career researchers/PhD students for oral presentations, no such restriction is applied to our online poster session.

If you would like to present your work at the meeting please send your abstract to by 7th July using the following form:

More details regarding the meeting website and online platform will be announced soon.

We look forward to seeing you online on the 30th July!
