STFC Introduction to Solar and Solar-Terrestrial Physics

Dear All

We are excited to announce that Northumbria University will play host for the STFC Introduction to Solar and Solar Terrestrial Physics Summer School.

Whilst we organise the programme, we would like to encourage all students who have either started their PhD since the last summer school or who will be joining our community in September/October, or indeed any other interested parties, to register interest below, to be held 21-26 August 2022 at Northumbria University in Newcastle.  A website will be created shortly but in summary:

  • This school is free to attend for all STFC students, but we also offer places for non-STFC students at cost so please get in touch if you would like to come but are not STFC funded
  • STFC has also given us funds to support those with caring or other responsibilities to ease difficulties in attending residential courses – please get in touch if this applies to you!

Please could you circulate the link to your students, colleagues and collaborators and encourage prospective attendees to fill it in by 30th June so that we can start to plan for numbers

Invitation to the CELTA Advanced Study Summer School 2022 – From Stardust to Extrasolar Planets

CELTA ASI Summer School series:
The 2 week long CELTA-Cortina Summer Schools in Astronomy-Celestial Mechanics are back and in person!

We would like to invite you to the CELTA ASI Summer School 2022:
14th International Advanced Study Institute ASI Summer School in Celestial Mechanics – Theory and Applications (CELTA)
77th Scottish Universities Summer Schools in Physics (SUSSP)
Under the patronage of the International Astronomical Union Commission A4 Celestial Mechanics & Dynamical Astronomy

From Stardust to Extrasolar Planets: Dynamics of Exoplanetary and Solar System Bodies
Location: University of Highlands & Islands (UHI), Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, Skye, & UHI Inverness, Scotland
Dates: 15 – 27 August 2022, 12 days
Website: www.astrocelta.org

Aim of this School: To stimulate the cross-fertilisation of ideas between the communities who work in exoplanetary and solar system dynamics and to understand the latest tools and methods of analysis necessary for research into exoplanets, solar system bodies and planetary systems.

If you haven’t been to a CELTA-Cortina style of Advanced Study Institute (ASI) School before – it is great fun – 2 weeks of collaborative working opportunities, exchange of ideas and learning of state-of-the-art mathematical and computational tools applied to the latest application areas in Celestial Mechanics, and delivered by internationally renowned lecturers. The school will be delivered face to face, in residential mode. We welcome PhD students and early-career/established researchers to join us at the CELTA ASI Summer School in Scotland in August 2022.

Funding: A number of full and partial scholarships supporting attendance will be available to eligible PhD students,
funded by UK STFC [Science and Technology Funding Council], SUSSP [Scottish Universities Summer Schools in Physics] and SUPA [Scottish Universities Physics Alliance]

The Website and Registration for the CELTA school is now open.
Apply here: https://caledonian.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/celta-asi-school-2022-from-stardust-to-extrasolar-planet
You are encouraged to apply before 7 June 2022 as spaces are limited.

Contact: exoplanet@gcu.ac.uk
Feel free to email us to add your name to our CELTA ASI Summer School mailing list to receive further announcements on this summer school and future summer schools of interest to Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy.

Registration deadline (31 March) for the Solar Orbiter school 2022 in Sète (France)

This is a reminder that the Solar Orbiter school will be held in Sète (France) from May 30th to June 3rd 2022.
*Deadline for the registration is on March 31st. *

*Overview and objectives*:

The exploitation of the ESA Solar Orbiter mission will shape the activity of the international heliophysics community for the years to come. Its success will depend on our ability to combine in situ and remote sensing data. This school, to be held in on the Mediterranean coast town of Sète, will provide training to young scientists in using the extremely various datasets and the tools specifically developed to analyze them. It targets an international audience primarily composed of PhD students and junior postdoctoral researchers.

It will provide short presentations of the mission instruments and first results, hands-on activities for data analyses, as well as sessions for presentation by students. The school is organised by the French community, but is open to everyone.

*Registration*:

Registrations will be open until March 31st when we will reassess the situation regarding the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. If the school is maintained at this point in time, successful applicants will be notified early April.

STFC Introductory Course in Solar and Solar-Terrestrial Physics 2021


REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

This year’s Summer School is provisionally planned to be held in-person at Durham University from the 22nd to the 27th of August. However, if the government’s easing of restrictions between now and then changes so that an in-person meeting is not deemed sensible, then the school will instead be held online. The final decision on this will be made by the 30th of June.

To register, please visit:
https://www.maths.dur.ac.uk/~trcn27/registration

Registration is free for all STFC funded students. Non-STFC students will be subject to a registration fee and should consult the webpage above for more details.

The Summer School is intended as an introduction to solar physics and solar-terrestrial interactions, aimed at PhD students starting in Autumn 2021. The 5-day course will consist of a number of lectures delivered by experts from across the UK. The lectures will cover a range of topics, from a general introduction to Plasma Physics to more specialised areas such as magnetic topology. In addition to the core lectures there will a careers Q&A, a session on surviving a PhD, an interactive introduction to Python/SunPy and a conference dinner on the Thursday evening. Accommodation for students during the week will be in one of Durham’s colleges.

Preliminary details of the programme may be found at:
