Meeting on Partially Ionised Plasmas in Astrophysics–2nd ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear Colleagues,

We invite abstracts for the forthcoming meeting on “Partially Ionised Plasmas in Astrophysics” (PIPA2022) that will take place in Budapest (Hungary) in the period 6-10 June, 2022. The meeting will take place in person.

Registration and Abstract submission deadline: 08 May 2022

The dynamics of partially ionized astrophysical plasmas is a relatively new and rapidly growing topic of research in various areas of astrophysics (solar lower atmosphere, interstellar medium, protostellar discs, planetary magnetospheres and ionospheres, etc). The meeting aims to broaden and strengthen the collaboration of scientists working in partially ionized plasmas in astrophysics and space science and to develop common scientific interest that could enhance cross-collaborations between the different fields.

The PIPA2022 meeting includes contributions from all areas of Astrophysics in which partially ionised plasmas (PIPs) play an essential role (including Solar Physics):
– Fundamental processes and phenomena in partially and weakly ionised plasmas (radiation transfer, collisional and kinetic effects, etc.)
– Dynamical processes in partially and weakly ionised plasmas (waves, instabilities, flows, winds, etc.)
– Turbulence, dynamo and nonlinear processes
– Magneto-convection, reconnection

The abstract submission (for oral or poster contributions) is open via the official conference website:

SOC: Istvan Ballai (UK), Elena Khomenko (Spain), Ramon Oliver (Spain), Javier Ballesteros (Mexico), Turlough Downes (Ireland), Mario Flock (Germany), Patrick Hennebelle (France) , Ildar Shaikhislanov (Russia), Jeffrey Thayer (USA)

We hope to see you soon in Budapest!
