Solar Wind 16 meeting in 2023

After a two-year delay occasioned by the COVID-19 situation, we’re pleased to announce a ‘save-the-date’ for the Solar Wind 16 (SW16) meeting. SW16 will convene the week of June 12, 2023 at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, California. Asilomar was the venue for the Solar Wind 2 and 3 meetings, in 1971 and 1974 respectively. Now, 50 years later, with measurements from Parker Solar Probe, Solar Orbiter, DKIST, and other assets we hope to reprise the excitement and enthusiasm of those early meetings. More details, a meeting website, and registration/abstracts milestones will follow soon.

Please mark your calendars.

Solar Physics High Energy Research (SPHERE) Workshop — 11–15 July 2022 — Boulder, CO, USA + Windisch, CH + online

The Solar Physics High Energy Research (SPHERE) Workshop — formerly known as the RHESSI workshop, and now motivated by SolO/STIX, MinXSS, EOVSA, and many other current and upcoming missions — will be held 11–15 July 2022. The workshop will be a hybrid format with online access and two in-person locations: Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in Boulder, Colorado, USA and Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz (FHNW) in Windisch, Switzerland.

The workshop agenda will include plenary topical sessions, held jointly between all locations, featuring invited talks and facilitated, open discussions on targeted science questions. This interactive format is intended to foster both broader and deeper collaboration and understanding amongst our community, to propel progress and enhance success by breaking down silos both within the high-energy solar physics and among solar and space physics in general. Additional independent morning (EU) and afternoon (US) sessions will feature tutorials, posters, early-career talks, and open collaboration.

Registration is required, and U.S. hotel accommodations (for the contract hotel) will be handled through the registration form. Abstracts for posters and early-career presentations, and suggestions for open topical discussions, will be solicited soon.

The workshop website at is operational with preliminary information, including travel information, and will be updated soon with registration information and deadlines.

We hope to see you soon in Boulder, Windisch, or online!

Advances in Solar MHD Numerical Simulations in the Era of High-Resolution Observations (7-10 August 2022)

Advances in Solar MHD Numerical Simulations in the Era of High-Resolution Observations
Eastbourne, on the South Coast of the UK, Sunday 7th August – Wednesday 10th August 2022


NOTE: Workshops are planned for the Bifrost and Pencil codes, and confirmed invited speakers include:

Ben Snow (Exeter): 2-fluid PIP
Chris Osborne (Glasgow): Lightweaver
Nitin Yadav (KU Leuven): MURaM/AMRVAC
Rony Keppens (KU Leuven): AMRVAC

The meeting will cover a number of topics related to the analysis of data obtained in solar MHD simulations and their interpretation in connection to high spatial and temporal resolution observations. In particular, sessions are planned regarding:
– Simulating of excitation and propagation of MHD waves in solar plasma,
– Simulating plasma instabilities,
– Effective numerical tools towards more realistic physics in modelling,
– Numerical simulations and spectral line synthesis,
– Identification and analysis of plasma flow’s features.

Call for abstracts to PRE 9, Dublin, 26-28 September 2022

Call for abstracts to PRE 9, Dublin, 26-28 September 2022

The 9th International Workshop on Planetary, Solar and Heliospheric Radio Emissions (PRE 9) deals with the most recent developments in the study of non-thermal radio emissions from the Sun, the radio planets, the heliosphere, and from extrasolar sources like exoplanets or brown dwarfs. Special emphasis is put on current and future spacecraft missions (Juno, Solar Orbiter, JUICE), but also new developments in ground-based radio telescopic observations (e.g. with LOFAR) will be matters of discussion.

PRE 9 is the continuation of a series of workshops that took place in and near Graz/Austria in 1984, 1987, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2005, 2010, and 2016. However, PRE 9 has now moved to Dublin/Ireland!

For more information please visit our website at Registration and abstract submission are already open. The abstract deadline is on 3 June 2022, and the workshop will take place 26-28 September. It will be primarily an in-person meeting with some hybrid options. We look forward to welcoming as many people to Dublin as possible. The organizing committee is looking forward to your abstract submission.
