Second Announcement: Conference on Advances in Understanding Alfvén Waves in the Sun and the Heliosphere

Berlin, Germany, 28 May – 2 June 2023
Conference website:
Abstract submission deadline: 15 February 2023

This interdisciplinary conference aims to bring together scientists from different communities to review and discuss the current state of research on Alfvén waves in space plasmas, including the solar atmosphere, the solar wind, planetary magnetospheres and ionospheres, and laboratory plasmas (if relevant to space plasmas). The conference will take place in Berlin (in-person), one of the most iconic cities in Europe with a history of over 750 years, and one of the trendiest vacation destinations in Europe (to quote a couple of travel websites).

The following science sessions will be organized:
1. Alfvén wave generation mechanisms
2. Alfvén wave propagation and coupling
3. Alfvén wave interactions with plasma and energetic particles
4. Alfvén wave applications in solar system plasmas
