The 3rd SOLARNET Workshop “Polarization in the Sun, the Solar System, and Beyond” will take place in Granada (Spain) between 25-28 May 2015, organized by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC).
The goal of this workshop is to present the latest advances in astronomical polarimetry and spectropolarimetry, with a focus on the sun, solar system bodies, stars, and exoplanets. We also aim at bringing together the different communities and fostering collaborations between them. In order to provide a detailed account of the latest developments in these areas - including instrumentation, measurement techniques, data analysis and interpretation - the following sessions have been scheduled:

- Instrumentation (ground, space, laboratory)
- Solar Photosphere
- Solar Chromosphere, Transition Region, and Corona
- Magnetic Field Diagnostics
- Polarization in the Solar System
- Stellar Magnetic Fields and Exoplanets

The workshop will be carried out right after the 3rd SOLARNET School on “Solar Magnetic Fields: Modeling and Measuring Techniques” (18-23 May 2015, Granada, Spain).

Online registration and abstract submission will be opened in early January 2015. Please mark your calendars!
