Meetings & Workshops

SOLARNET Meetings on Solar Physics

The aim of these meetings is to put in contact different solar physics communities and researchers involved in other fields.


- Periodic meetings on topics related to solar physics and solar-stellar connections, where the participants can show the results of their research and profit from discussion time slots devoted to exchange of experience and competences

- The fostering of collaborations aimed at improving the interaction between theoreticians, experts in numerical simulations and observers

- The sharing of pipelines and software for solar data reduction and analysis

- The consolidation of high-resolution MHD simulations to analyze the performance of advanced instrumentation for high-Resolution solar observations

- Promotion of seismological studies as a way to understand solar/stellar interiors.

These meetings will be also a very appropriate environment for the dissemination of knowledge.


SOLARNET Schools and Workshops

Under the WP30.3 "Training of the new generation of scientists", these training schools and thematic workshops foresee:

- The organization of summer/winter schools for PhD students and novel post-doc researchers on topics related to the development of new instrumentation for solar observations, diagnostic tools, hot solar research topics and fields of mutual interest for solar and stellar physicists

- The organization of thematic workshops matched with the training schools (i.e., immediately after or in splinter sessions)

The schools/workshops will be devoted to the following themes:

1. Introduction to solar physics/Radiative processes in the Sun and the stars (Poland, UWR)

2. Ground and space based instruments/Methods in high resolution and synoptic solar physics (Slovakia,

3. Solar magnetic fields: modeling and measuring techniques/Polarization as a tool to study the Sun, the
Solar System, and beyond (Spain, IAA-CSIC)

4. MHD waves and oscillations in the solar atmosphere/Heating mechanisms in the solar atmosphere (United Kingdom, QUB)

5. Solar MHD and magnetic reconnection theory/Solar eruptive events: observations and modelling (United Kingdom, MSSL/UCL)
