WISA Workshop 2025 — Call for Host Proposals & Committee Updates

The Waves and Instabilities in the Solar Atmosphere (WISA) Committee announces a call for proposals to host the upcoming WISA workshop during the summer of 2025. Focused on the latest advancements in the observations and modelling of waves and instabilities in the solar atmosphere, WISA workshops (formerly known as BUKS) provide engaging forums with substantial opportunities for in-depth discussions.

Previous workshops have successfully gathered around 80-100 participants, bringing together experts, researchers, and students in a collaborative and vibrant environment. We aim to continue this tradition of insightful exchange and learning in the 2025 workshop.

If you are interested in hosting the workshop, please submit a single PDF (maximum 2 pages) describing:

  • The Location (the proposed venue)
  • Available Facilities
  •  Estimated Registration Fee (keeping in mind the goal of making the workshop accessible to a diverse range of participants)
  • Accommodation Options
  •  Any Additional Information (anything else you deem relevant to support your proposal)

Please email your proposal to shahin.jafarzadeh@mps.mpg.de.

The deadline for submission is June 30th, 2024.
