ESPM-16 first announcement: 7-11 Sept 2020, Turin Italy

Dear colleague,

this is the first announcement for the 16th European Solar Physics Meeting (ESPM-16) that will take place in Turin (Italy) in the period 07-11 September, 2020. The meeting will be hosted in the Aula Magna of Turin University, located in the centre of Turin.

ESPMs are organized by the Board of the European Solar Physics Division (ESPD), a joint Division of the European Physical Society (EPS) and the European Astronomical Society (EAS).

ESPMs are held every 3 years with the purpose of bringing together researchers from Europe and beyond, who are active in the theoretical and observational study of solar and solar-terrestrial phenomena.

The tentative scientific programme of ESPM-16 includes the following sessions:

Session 1: Solar Interior, Dynamo, Large-Scale Flows and the Solar Cycle
Session 2: The Solar Atmosphere: Heating, Dynamics and Coupling
Session 3: Fundamental Plasma Processes in the Solar Atmosphere: Magnetic Reconnection, Waves, Emission, Particle Acceleration
Session 4: From Radio to Gamma Rays: Near-Sun Manifestations and Triggering of Solar Flares and Coronal Mass Ejections
Session 5: Solar-Terrestrial Relations, Solar Wind, Space Weather and Space Climate

The online registration and abstract submission platforms will open on 10th February, with a deadline on 13th April 2020. The ESPM-16 Local ( and Scientific Organizing Committees are currently working to secure funding that will hopefully provide limited travel and/or local support mainly to young researchers and participants from less privileged regions.

Further details related to registration fees, abstract submission, accommodation, financial support and relevant deadlines will be circulated in a second announcement and will also be posted on the meeting’s website: .

We look forward to welcoming you to Turin,

The ESPM-16 LOC.
